  • Description


    We are a small organic farm located 15 min from the beach. We have rescue animals, cows, horses, lemons crops, guanabana and more. Originally from Sweden but Ecuador has been our home for more than 20 years. We speak English, Swedish, French and Spanish fluently. There are about 60 hectares of primary forest which we are seeking to protect from deforestation. The forest is beautiful and is home too many animals such as the howler monkeys which you can hear daily and the ever eluding ocelot. We horseback ride, surf, paddle board and much more!!

    During your time off there is a beautiful beach about 15 min away (Canoa). We are very active so surfing and physical activities are always on the agenda. Living a healthy lifestyle is what we strive for. We will help with transportation when needed.
