Sana y Papo Nickel at Casa del Mundo in Puerto Rico
About Us

The popularity of certain unique small guesthouses the world over comes largely from the charm of those who run them. Casa del Mundo is no exception. When you arrive at Casa del Mundo for your vacation, you will be greeted by Sana & Papo Nickel, a warm and interesting couple. Guests are encouraged to pre-order Sana's "Welcoming Meal" [See RATES/CONTACT page], 2 choices of menu, as most everyone arrives with a ravenous appetite due to the amazing adventure of the ride up the mountain with steep inclines, spectacular views and the effect of breathing in the pure and cool mountain air. Following the gourmet, organic vegetarian banquet, Papo & Sana will show you around and make sure that you have everything you need at all times during your stay. Despite your exotic surroundings, you'll soon feel completely at home.

 Sana & Papo reside on their farm, Finca Caminos & Moradas, in the south central mountains of Puerto Rico (Barrio Barreal de Peñuelas), where for the past 30 years they have nurtured a close relationship with the surrounding “campesino” community through the development and encouragement of  ecological agriculture, environmental projects, intercultural exchanges and sustainable eco-tourism.

Each year from September to May, they open their farm for eco-tourism, when accommodation is available in Casa del Mundo or Casa kadam and for campers. January is also available for those wishing to do meditation retreat.

Papo’s love for organic gardening and sustainable land management finds him immersed in plantings and trail-blazing around the property, continuously enhancing the groundwork for sustainable eco-tourism.

Sana is an extraordinary chef, producing delicious and healthy meals using freshly picked organic produce from the farm. When available, you will be able to order delightful dishes, hand delivered by Sana, from:  Sana's Wholy Grain Catering Service.

During the remainder of the year, Sana & Papo perform as the duo, TAINO, as Artists-in-Education, mostly in the NYC area, presenting bilingual programs with various themes such as Latin American music and culture (inspired by a 5-year journey they took through Central & South America), rainforest themes and other. The couple also continuously explore their musical ideas, integrating superb Puerto Rican musicians into their projects and island performances as the world music ensemble:  “CLAVE MUNDIAL.”
