We are two men, one Canadian, one Ecuadorian with the same dream to build a beautiful, tranquil, and self sustaining property, including an Ecolodge, with bar/restaurant and make delicious chocolate tree to bar from our land. The project began in 2014 with our first plantings of cacao, coco and coffee. Now we are seeing the fruits of our labour. And we are making our own chocolate and coffee. The Ecolodge construction is well underway for an opening in 2020.

Our project is in a tiny authentic agricultural community. Great exchanges happen every day. The locals in this village are very friendly. If you are interested in playing billiards or a game of football with locals it is easy, or buying local produce, cheese or milk. There is lots of opportunity for great cultural exchanges with local residents. Also with Canoa beach so close, there is great opportunity for cultural exchange there too. Learn to surf, or kayak, swim, relax on the beach.
We are building a 3 story ecolodge. Hardwood, cement and bamboo. Need building skills. Experience in trades such as electric and plumbing a great asset. We are constructing a lot with bamboo, rock and cement.
We also have farm work such as watering, weeding, feeding animals, etc. Animals include pigs, chickens, horse, dogs cat.
Solid roof over head with fully functioning bathroom and kitchen. We have one dorm room in the ecolodge suitable for up to 4 persons. Dorm room has private bathroom and shower.
Food is ultimately your responsibility. Tere is a fully equipped and functioning kitchen for you to use. Ideally sharing responsibility of food prep works best.
Plenty of activities here! Canoa, a famous surf town is 7km away. SURFING, swimming, SUP, paragliding, fishing, horseback ridding, cycling among them.
