Quote from Tripadvisor

"Finca Rio Muchacho was for our family quite an experience – a great add to the normal tourist stuff: We did jungle tours, whale tours, Otavalo etc. but three days in Rio Muchacho was a fantastic complement. We got dirt under our nails digging up yucca, we got sore in our behinds by horse riding, we had a swim at the cascade, and we tried to make coffee and cacao in traditional manner and many more things. Thus we got to experience life of campesinos and the same time meeting people (Finca owners Dario and Nicola) in Ecuador who fights for sustainable farming and living. They make an effort not in speak but in doing. We enjoyed highly the friendly way that our skilled guide Edgar gave us insight and knowledge of everything – not least horse-riding which we had no experience in before. Great fun for the entire family (12, 15, 19 years and parents)."

"We had such a wonderful day full of adventures and unique insights about sustainable living and life, that it’s hard to believe it all happened in just one day.  We embarked on a day trip nearly a month ago, and our kids still have not stopped talking about it. I never imagined that the day’s activities would be as child friendly as they were, the ranch went above and beyond the call of duty, to ensure that the day as was memorable for our children, as it as for us. Quite honestly, we can hardly wait to return again."
