Episode 40: Bill Humphrey of The Rainforest Inn

We have taken almost every conceivable step towards making The Rainforest Inn a place that costs the Earth very little.

Bill and Renée Humphrey combined their dreams to live in the El Yunque Rainforest and to manage a boutique hotel after purchasing a small hurricane-ravaged property in 1997. Hoping to one day share the natural majesty of the place with the world, they started building The Rainforest Inn, a romantic hideaway that showcases the best Puerto Rico has to offer. The Inn operates as sustainably as possible, is 100% vegetarian, and grows almost all of the gourmet food served to guests on-site.

We talk with Bill about the ongoing projects the Inn is undertaking to continue minimizing their environmental impact, and their partnership with WWOOF (World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms). Listen to learn more about Bill’s journey from journalist to innkeeper, and how The Rainforest Inn is giving back to the Puerto Rican community and environment.
