I am part of the community of Santa Rosa in the Zone of Intag, Ecuador. It is made up of 30 families living on isolated farms. Since everyone has to walk on the public trails, you often meet the neighbor on the trails. Many of the women are artisans of Mujer y Medio Ambiente whom weave and crochet with sisal. It is possible to visit the women and purchase their products.

During your stay

I like to accompany my guests on some of the hikes in the reserve. I can show them the trail to the river, the Cock-of-the-Rock bird lek, and the trail head to the primary cloud forest. I am available to give drawing and painting classes.
