This exclusive ecological park, training center and ecotourism destination has been carefully developed by a couple from New Zealand /Ecuadorian for more than 30 years. It is located in a valley in the Community of Río Muchacho in the province of Manabí on the mid-coast of Ecuador.

The area has miles of undeveloped beaches with good surf and great for bathing, and the farm is only 20 minutes from the tourist coastal town of Canoa.

The essence of this work has been condensed in the 9.5 ha farm in the creation of an Ecofarm Park that fuses sustainability, education, agriculture, agroecotourism and local culture, in a unique and special way.
