Rio Muchacho Organic Farm and Eco-lodge offers a unique and ecologicially friendly haven for guests to stay, relax, and explore. Our bungalow-style accommodation was constructed entirely from local materials, and we try to prepare all our meals using fresh fruits and vegetables harvested from our own grounds. Unwind in our Meditation Garden, spend time investigating the farm's abundance of plant and animal life, or choose from an array of guided tours.
Experience coastal Ecuador in a tranquil setting far removed from the typical tourist track. Harvest fresh organic ingredients and prepare a traditional tonga lunch. Horseback ride to a monkey forest, then make your own chocolate. Learn about acroecology and permaculture, then contemplate sustainable living while enjoying a medicinal clay face mask. We offer both guided and self guided activities for our day visitors, as well as mutli-day cultural and adventure packages.
Gain hands on experience in organic farming and permaculture practices in our volunteer program. Learn about seed saving, compost making, planting, harvesting, and much more!

“We wanted to visit a local family and sample typical food, but we got much more. Experiences like this help us evolve from tourists into like-minded people”
