We are building up an eco tourism project in Costa Rica, based on observation and enjoyment of flora and fauna. Our aim is to build an eco base, based on geodesic domes or yurts (still deciding), resistant to the weather conditions of the jungle and the coast (salt, humidity, heavy rain) and insects (mosquito net).
We have recently found your website and we would like to receive further information regarding the following:
-What is the main difference between your yurtdomes and domes? What is the difference in frequency between dome and yourdome?
-What type of materials do you think we could use in such a environment?
-Are all your materials syntetic, light and resitant to long term durability?
-Do you ship the yurts or domes and if so, how long does it take? Costs please? We are looking at 1 dome/yurt of 30′ and 4 of 20′.
Thank you very much for the information.

Hi Max and Laura
The only difference between our Domes and our Yurt Domes is the name. Our domes are like the original Yurts in Mongolia: portable and light weight. Our domes use state of the art patented geodesic and tensegrity engendering: https://shelter-systems.com/tensegrity.html
The standard US made Yurts use very bulky and heavy components and take hours to days to put up. Our Yurt Domes should hold up well in your conditions.
Our standard White Shelter Covering would be best for you.
We ship world wide and have most of our shelters in stock (check our order desk for details}.
