I just spent the most incredible day with the most inspiring dude in Samaná, Dominican Republic. His name is Bartolo, AKA the Tree House Dude, because he made his childhood dreams come true by building the most epic Tree House Village in the middle of the jungle. You have to see it to believe it!
It wasn’t always easy for Bartolo, as he grew up in a very poor household in Boise, Idaho. To pay for his college, which took him 13 years to complete, he was scrubbing toilets and running a commercial cleaning company… Then when he graduated, he went on vacation in the Dominican Republic, where he found his “true calling” as he says, and he has never left since then.
Here is the full story of Bartolo. If you ever go to the Dominican Republic, then do me a favor and stay at the Dominican Tree House Village!
Special thanks to “That Jungle Life” for the extra footage.
