Your visit contributes to our local projects and the conservation of 21.400 h. of tropical rainforest
A sustainable community
This community from the Amazon rainforest in Ecuador realised that ecotourism is an excellent alternative for local development, for improving the quality of life, for preserving traditional activities and most importantly for conserving nature.
The community lives in an area of over 200 square kilometres within the Yasuni National Park. In this region of highly diverse flora and fauna the community decided to give up its legitimate right to hunt and fish, and thanks to this, nature has thrived here, in contrast to its depletion in other parts of the Amazon basin.
The implementation of solar panels allows capturing solar energy and store it by means of a battery system, then distribute it to the different activities carried out within the community, whether in the tourism operation, ducation and health. This system allows reducing the use of electric generators that work based on fuel obtained from petroleum.
