All the little towns and almost all the little hotels along the San Juan River dump they grey water into the San Juan River. During the dry season, you could see the PVC piping coming out of their property into the river. This creates and environmental impact that grows proportionally as population growth as well as tourist staying as guest on those places..

Hurricane Otto on November 2016 caused huge damage to the lodge and most of the rain forest of Indio Maiz biological reserve. It took more than a year for the lodge to get back on its feet; the government minimized the damage and left Montecristo with false hope of assistance.  Now is under new management and is trying to make a comeback, and need your support by stayig as a guess when you visit the San Juan River.
