About Rio Muchacho

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. In our Yoga & Meditation garden next to the river Muchacho you can relax, meditate or practice yoga anytime. Surrounded by trees and the sounds of birds you will feel peaceful instantly. We have a craft workshop where we create unique jewelry from vegetable ivory or make bowls and spoons from the mate gourd, and lots more! At the workshop we also do paper recycling, where we can show you how to recycle your used paper into a brand new blank sheet. On our self-guided tour you are given a map of the farm which collocates to our marked spots all around the farm. We have a space for children to play in our park! Equipped with swings, climbers and other play equipment.
At the end of the day, chill out in the hammocks all around the farm! Please note: the food is mainly vegetarian, but sometimes with fish, shrimp, or (rarely) white meats – no red meat is served. Our office in Canoa is closed on Sundays. During the other days, you will be able to find someone to welcome you from 9 am until 4 pm.

Accommodation Information

The farm has 8 different rustic cabins and rooms, accommodating from 1-12 people each, totaling a maximum of up to 35 people at once. Depending on courses and events, at any time there could be from 3 -50 visitors. The property offers shared and private rooms, some with private bathroom.

Location Information

Río Muchacho is 80 m above sea level and sits in a transition zone where the dry tropical forest and the wet tropical forest converge. It is heavily influenced by both the Humboldt and El Niño currents. Due to its location at the convergence of two ecosystems, it has a great variety of trees, plants, birds, animals, and insects from both the dry tropical forest and the wet tropical forest. The entrance to Río Muchacho is 10 km north of Canoa on the San Vicente-Jama Road on the mid coast of Ecuador. From the entrance from the main road, it is 8 km of unpaved road to the organic farm.
