Eco-Friendly Farmstays Ecuador
Eco-Friendly Farmstays brings you the opportunity to stay with a local family in an agricultural area of rural Ecuador.  This is bed & breakfast, Latin American style, with the added advantage of guided tours if you want them.  You have a unique agrotourism holiday experience, local families earn some money and CRACYP, the reforestation charity behind Eco-Friendly Farmstays, can plant more trees.  Everybody wins.

A farmstay is the ideal way to experience rural life in Ecuador.  The agrotourism homestay experience is just as economic as a cheap hotel and much more fun.  Bed & breakfast with a local family is a great option for family holidays with children but equally suitable for solo travellers, couples or groups of friends.  If you're interested in getting off the beaten track in Latin America, getting to know local people and being a responsible traveller, Eco-Friendly Farmstays are for you.

The tourist attractions in our part of Ecuador are little-known and uncrowded.  What we offer is the friendly hospitality of local communities, the natural beauty of mountain valleys, sparkling waterfalls and virgin forest and the year-round attractions of warm weather, tropical wildlife, abundant birdlife and a fascinating local culture.  

The B&B accommodation is as varied as the families themselves - charming, rustic, quirky but above all friendly, and welcoming you to the beautiful sugar-cane foothills of the Andes in this rural, subtropical paradise.  
We can arrange ecotourism activities such as river rafting, chocolate-making, horseriding, forest treks, visits to our other sustainable rural development projects and much more.  See our suggested tour itineraries for inspiration and then contact us to design the perfect farmstay holiday for you, whether that is active, relaxing, cultural or a mixture of all that is on offer.  

Farmstays can make an unusual Christmas holiday in Ecuador or even a way to escape Christmas altogether...
