WHO WE ARE

YOUR ADVENTURE BEGINS...WHERE THE ROAD ENDS!
Welcome to Nama Laka,  my very own, private, family nature reserve.  A remote paradise like none other! 
My name is Dr. Brady Barr and this is my own private bio-reserve.  For the past 20 years I have been a resident scientist and TV personality for the National Geographic Society.  During that time I have traveled to over eighty countries and been to some of the most remote and beautiful places on Earth.  Seeing so much of the planet in peril, made me want to own a piece of the rainforest, a natural, unspoiled, special place that I could protect and that my family could enjoy.  We decided upon Costa Rica, one of the most amazing and beautiful places I have ever experienced.  We purchased Nama Laka in 2009, and we have slowly been improving it and sharing it with family and close friends.  Only now are we opening it up to a select few, those that want to expereince a private, remote, pristine, almost religious reconnection with nature.  It is a special place for me and my family and I hope a special place for you as well.  Explore these pages and decide for yourself if it is what you are looking for.  This website is not professional, it is all my words and built with my hands.  The photos you see throughout, are of my family and taken by us, on our many get-aways in paradise...Nama Laka!

We cannot guarantee what animals or experiences you will  be blessed
with during your visit, but what we can guarantee, is that this will be a
private experience for you and your party.  Nama Laka will be your very own private Eden during your stay.  You will not see or hear humanity at
Nama Laka, other than maybe the locals...vaquaros (cowboys) riding
the road or driving their cattle. Experiencing Nama Laka is like going
back in time.  Here, owing to the remoteness of the area, and primitive
dirt road, residents of the area utilize horseback or ox cart to travel
during their daily lives.  Your adventure begins where the road ends!

“Nama Laka” (Means land of jaguars in the ancient Bri Bri language).  Nama Laka consists of 150 acres of very remote, wild rainforest, filled with crystal clear rivers and streams, waterfalls and giant trees, and abundant wildlife, including: 3 species of monkeys, poison dart frogs, green winged macaws, toucans, pumas, endangered tapir, ocelots, morpho butterflies and more!  Nama Laka borders Braullio Carillo National Park, and at over 100,000 acres it is one of Costa Rica’s largest protected areas, and right out our backdoor!
ACCOMODATIONS
OUR PHILOSOPHY
ACTIVITIES
  • The Tree House:  Get a whole new perspective, with lodging 20 feet up in the canopy.  You're in the trees, but still with all the comforts of home (refrigerator, shower, toilet, sink).
 
  • The Puma Platform:   A lot closer to the ground, but still with plenty of excitement.  We don't call it the Puma Platform for nothing!
 
  • The Morpho Platform:   Good things come in small packages.  Our smallest offering but it's BIG in ambiance.  Morpho is built on top of a small stream.  No better sleeping in the forest than at the Morpho
 
 
 
 
Privacy is what we're all about!!

If you're like me, you've had your fill of tour buses, large crowds, and rigid agendas.  When I get away, I want a private, personal experience, especially when it comes to nature, and that is our philosophy at Nama Laka.  We only accept a small number of visitors at one time.  We want you to feel as if you have the entire rainforest to yourself, one without distractions.   We will cater to your desires and arrange exactly what you want, whether it's solitary explorations, or a guided tour lead by our naturalist/caretaker.  At Nama Laka it's all about what you want, when you want, an how you want it!!
