Arriving prepared to the Bosque will help you enjoy your time! If you have any questions about what you should be packing, just let us know before you arrive so we can help you prepare.

Required Items

  • You MUST bring a flashlight or headlamp. It gets very dark at night. LED bulbs are best.
  • You MUST bring warm clothing. It gets very cold at night.
  • If you are camping, you MUST bring a sleeping bag and tent. If you don’t own one, check to see if we have one available to rent you before arriving! Bring along a towel as well.



General Packing List
  • Appropriate shoes and clothing. Bosque Village is a rural, trailed location. If you plan to work on art projects or building projects, bring clothes you don’t mind getting dirty.
  • Toiletries. We really appreciate, though do not require, guests who are able to bring along biodegradable soaps and toiletries.
  • Any medication you may need during your stay.
  • Sunglasses/sun protection. At the Bosque, it is easy to find shade. But for day trips it is nice to have protection.
  • Water bottle.
  • Notebook and pens
  • A daypack to carry your stuff on walks
  • Anything you might miss while eating the yummy Bosque food: coffee, special tea, tequila and lime, etc.
  • During the rainy season (June – September), bring along rain gear. Simple ponchos are available in our store.
  • Digital camera and charger
  • Cell phone and charger
  • Swimsuit: clothing is required during traditional temazcal saunas and for part of the regular sauna time.
  • Musical Instruments
  • Whatever you want to share: your art, experiences, a workshop or class; totally optional but fun!
What we provide
  • We provide drinking water.
  • We provide toilet paper and hand sanitizer/hand soap.
  • We provide towels for those staying in a cabaña or hut.
  • We provide three vegetarian meals per day, and fruit all day for snacking
Other important notes
  • Don’t bring snacks in small packages (candy wrappers and plastic end up on the trails). If fresh fruit for a snack is not all that appealing, bring some nuts, dried fruit, or healthy snack items for munching on between meals.
  • Don’t bring cigarettes. We are a non-smoking location.
  • There is not enough electricity at the Bosque to provide for using heated items such as irons, electric coffee makers, or hair dryers. If you are travelling with these devices please plan for alternative solutions during your stay.
