  • Description

    Description

    I am a middle aged Canadian male and with an Ecuadorian male business partner we are building an eco tourist destination. This project began with our first plantings five years ago. These were coconuts, coffee and cacao. One day we plan to make great chocolate on our land, and expect it to start in 2020. We are working toward self sufficiency with the goal of providing all energy required for our land from our land. We are constructing a 10 room ecolodge and bar/restaurant that we plan to open in 2020.

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our project is in a tiny authentic agricultural community. Great exchanges happen every day. Whether you are interested in playing billiards with locals or buying local produce, there is lots of opportunity for exchanges with local residents. Also with Canoa so close there is much opportunity for cultural exchange there! Surf, beach, restaurants, bars.
