My name is Sol and i live with my 3 lovely dogs (Nunki, Kaus, & Wieri) and 3 horses (horses, Alondra, Azalea, and Alarik), and a few cats, in my Farm (Finca ). The Casa business is running and sometimes we have some guests, but my attention is mainly focused on the finca. The finca is a place, located up a hill with wonderfull ocean view, close to the Casa , in the finca we are building a new house for me and for the voluntiers. My dream is the farm says sowing life, that is self-sustainable and self-sustaining, that grows along with people who have the same optics of conservation and return to the roots of man, share with my animals and a huge fruit and vedgetable garden.
PHILOSOPHY of our Finca was born with the conviction that everything is possible if you want with the heart, the importance and respect for the species and the needs of man in general, " sowing sowing life" recovering this bit of soil / sky, transmitting and teaching volunteers from around the world and the local community the importance of returning to the beginnings of man in the face of impending climate change.
The soil recovery chain begins with composting (compostum), the planting of native tree species combined with edible species that help with soil nitrogen, while indirectly contributing to the reintroduction of avifauna and endemic species in general.
To live, appreciate and enjoy between the balance and harmony between man and his resources in a sustainable and sustainable way.
My home is located in Las Tunas, a small village close to Puerto Lopez - Manabi. We are a team dedicated to recreational, research, cultural, adventure and holiday tourism. The casa has 7 rooms, a restaurant, a game room. The beach is made for surfing and horse back riding, and at certain times of the year the sea turtles nest so it is not surprising to see the little turtles born and from end of june to end of octover we can enjoied the Humpback whales.

Here is always a lot to do!!
In the morning we ususally go to the finca and work there for a couple of hours.
There are various tasks to do, for example: construction works, painting, building and repairing fences, gardening and general maintenance. Chickens, horses, dogs....
Normally we spend the rest of the day in the Casa, where are also a lot of things you could do.
If there are guests, you will be the one who takes care of their stay.
The dogs are always around, so there are a lot of possibilities to spend time with them.
During the day the horses are staying at the finca and at the evening they love it to be taken for a walk on the beach together.
In general the life in the Casa is very calm and relaxed but never boring.
NOTE: As a precaution and the preferably, it is important to bring the COVID 19 test with a negative result to safeguard the volunteers and hosts.
If you do not have it because you have been before the COVID in Ecuador you can do it for free in Puerto Lopez through the local Municipality through the Health Center.
There is one room for the volunteers with a double bed and a bunk bed.
You can use the big Casa kitchen.
Or if you prefer you can stay in the house of the farm with other volunteers, I must point out that the house of the farm was made with volunteers from the world that is why the room is so cozy with a spectacular view of the sea.
Only breakfast is offered and depending on the season, fruits and vegetables from the finca.
