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.

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.
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.
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 a shared responsibility taking turns.
Plenty of activities here! Canoa, a famous surf town is 7km away. SURFING, swimming, SUP, paragliding, fishing, horseback ridding, cycling among them.
