We are creating a space to reconnect with the natural world around us for like minded and experimenting with tropical alternative farming.Call it a farm, a multi species-food forest or a micro community, a self-healing space or simply a place to live better. Dont expect a typical permaculture farm. We try to live in a different way to make an original, useful and real experience. We are learning to live with a higher consciousness and general respect and to share our ideas with other beautiful people who have a similar take on life. This family-like farm is situated where the misty mountains meet the Amazon. The project is made up of 2 farms within 2 miles of eachother. The smaller one is located on the big Napo river beach and has 1 hec. (2.5 acres) of permaculture, edible forest and gardens along with a wide variety of private cabins, glamping style, (also for rent!!). The upper farm has 23 hec. (57 acres) of protected rainforest sitting on an open cliff with breathtaking mountain-river views. On this farm, we have a special open-air house and private open-air cabins, all with incredible views and some gardens. We are trying to live in a more sustainable, natural way. We have done some minor reforesting with fruit trees with minimal impact on the surrounding jungle. We are doing our best to keep our hearts, our minds and our eyes open. Our lives are dedicated to creating a place we can all call home. Like-minded people are always welcome!

-Simple living, sustainable agro-forestry farming, cabins for rent, spaces for retreats, volunteering
-Connecting with basic natural elements, with ourselves, enjoying every moment
-Yoga spaces, temazcal (native sweat lodge), simple energy and body cleansing, crystal river bathing, jungle walks close to nearby lagoons and waterfalls
-Connecting with old native knowledge, traditional medicines, cultivating many forgotten native plants and fruits from all over the world that are disappearing and not common.
-Staying in simple but cozy private cabins, a simple wooden house,open-air cabins feeling the air, energy and elements in nature.
-good quality 3 alternative vegan meals per day (mostly from local product), activities, local trips and more included!
-A place to call home, far away from your home...a place to rehabilitate and detox from the system and way we are living in...
The goal is to get back to the nature, to us and to the universe, to get back to all that we have lost throughout historyÖ all that we have to recuperate.
We are a non-profit project, but currently asking visitors for small fees to sustain the farm as we are not a production farm. Based on how long you wish to stay the fees are starting at:

$ 10 per person/day

$ 8 from 3 weeks up.....

$ lower fees from 3 months up



In case you DONíT wish to work, just add $4 a day and arrange your meals, a breakfast is included and we can offer meals for a small fee.

Any additional donations are welcomed and appreciated. They help to improve the living conditions here for all and to keep protecting our rainforest preserve, home to many species of plants and animals,producing oxigen and water...

Special discounts for extended stays, monthly friendly rates for the cabins.

Minimum stay is one week. Maximum stay..??
We work about 4 hours a day, 5 days a week. We are constantly adapting to climate changes, farm needs and yours, of course. Your expectations, skills and needs are important to us. Usually we dedicate to maintenance of the trees, gardens and cabins. They are not very difficult jobs, in general.No big projects curently going on.

You dont need any vaccinations to come to this part of the Amazon, we are in NO Malaria/ Dengue/Yellow fever area here.

We are flexible, adapting to each individualís needs and we especially welcome long-stayers and couples.

We dont belong to any organizacion, religion or a spiritual group, we are free...
