The Stations

captura-de-pantalla-2017-02-17-a-las-22-35-36We work with several communities across the coast of Ecuador, due that we have TWO Stations to make possible a better work and a deeper interaction with the communities.

We have our Acclimatate Station, located in the surroundings of a touristic area. This station has access and equipied to supply all needs and is propouse is to make you confortable and prepare for the expedition to the San Vicente community.

On the other hand the Scientific station are located more deep into the mountains, where the people do a more simple living surrounded by  nature. The community is  part of the “Guancavilca´s culture tradition”  near the “Chongon Colonche Mountains” , the “San Vicente Dam” and agriculture production.

Everyone  that stays with us visit & stay on both station.

To our project visit people for all over the world from the most diverse lifestyles, careers and backgrounds.  To make possible to everyone get the most of the experience and enjoy the most of this outdoor experience we create the acclimatation station. To prepare for the expedition to the more low access communities, creating a soft transition between the life on the cities and a more simple way of living.

How looks like to stay on the camping house?

As is name said, is a camping experience with the services of a house. It means you will have access to beds, pillows, hot water, a Kitchen, bathroom, electricity, landscape, etc.. but it does not change that it was designed to make you feel an outdoor experience.

You will hear the birds  & animals of the natural reserve next to the station, wake up wit the sunrise,  feel the breeze and maybe a bit of rain on the balcony. Is not like an hotel, is a  new experience you will enjoy a lot.

The Scientific Station is where things get done!, we implement all the projects that were developed on the  Acclimatate station. On the the Scientific Station we work with 40 children and his families to make a true impact on their lives. Remember that due this community is located in a low access area our help is much more valuable and his a big responsibility to make it count.

How is doing the expedition to the Scientific Station community?

The landscape of this area is incredible, but also the poverty due the lack of knowledge is visible. Visit the station is doing an expedition like an explorer, we will reach a camping area on the station where you can also meet the community members.
Going to the community e is an adventure of exploring, we will spend the afternoon with the children and then go to the camping area for doing a scout firepit for cooking  and learning more about survival skills.

Surroundings / Landscaping / Location


This area is located deeply on the “Chongon Colonche Mountains” we take 1 hour drive from Manglaralto to reach a beautiful Dam & Valley  where the “Guancavilca Culture” lives once.

Is a nice place to explore and learn how a true rural town of Ecuador looks like, without the influence of the tourism and commerciality of big cities.  Is very peaceful and enjoyfull. The station is located on the path to a natural viewpoint and next to the ecopark project.
