    Description

    Hi, my name is Chris. I am originally from Canada and moved to Tarapoto, Peru to create a Bed and Breakfast that provides accomodation for travellers looking for a quiet, peaceful, family like environment. My vision is to move towards a completely self-sustainable life while being ecologically conscious. To accomplish this there are projects that I am developing to make this a reality. The two primary projects that we are focusing on is an organic vertical vegetable garden on our rooftop terrace and back patio that will also incorporate herbs and micorgreens.
    The second is our rainwater collection system with natural filtration for accessable drinking water harvested at home without the dependence of city water distribution. I am very passionate about these projects and intend to offer them as products to the local community as well as integrating a charitable organization to provide these systems to local areas that do not have access to clean drinking water and fresh organic food.

    We here at have three private rooms for guests. We offer a quiet, healing atmosphere and believe these projects will compliment the space we provide. We accommodate many guests working with plant medicine diets such as ayahuasca, this is why we strive to create a harmonious, loving space.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Tarapoto is a beautiful and cosy jungle city to explore.
    You can walk to the plaza, visit viewpoints to watch the sunset, hang out in a nice cafe or bar, swim in rivers located in protected natural reserves, camping in the jungle and soaking in the hot springs and visit a number of nearby waterfalls.

    We are directly connected with adventure tour groups who can help arrange tours to go hiking, tree climbing, cave exploring and take you to waterfall rappelling for a fair price.

    There are also many amazing agricultural tours such as cacao, coffee and bee farms close by that you can visit and sample the deliciousness of the jungle.
