Bienvenidos al Proyecto Ocelote!


With the acquisition of a jungle terrain within 6 kilometers of the Ecuadorian Pacific coast, we have started a project of preservation and awareness in a communal setting. The man who started this dream was Bola and, after a while, Annalisa took part at this project.


On 10 hectares of land, we plan to create an ecological community to develop environmentally sustainable and productive agroforestry systems based on practices like permaculture and bio-construction. We can use a lot of help with that! Volunteers have been coming here for since 2015 to help local workers in nursing, Lanting and construction.

We nurse and plant trees and bushes on meadows where used to be jungle, which was cut down many years ago. We are planning to live of the fruits of the trees that we will plant. We aim that at some point, the jungle will be restored in its original state in the rest of our land (50 hectares).

We have started this project, seeing also in this land its enormous healing potential and here we wanted to lay the foundations for creating a space for personal care, healing, restoration and growth. For this reason, in according with our lives, people coming from different parts of the world decide to take part in Traditional Medicine Journeys, which are done at the start and in the middle of the year, in differents times, for a period of variable length, from a week-end, to 10 or 25 days. You can also visit us during those dates, but take in account that there will be workshops going on in the house.

So we started this project but we are searching people that really want to collaborate and cooperate in this.

We are looking for people who are willing to take an active part in this project, creating a collaboration, participating and putting in it as much as possible.
We realize that this kind of engagement requires a conscience that often takes time, so, as long as our desire is to find people who wants to go down in this project totally and immediately, we know that this is unlikely to be possible. However, we are open to this Dream and we hope it becomes reality soon.
Understanding the above and combining our practical needs at the Finca concerning work and maintenance, we are currently urgently looking for people or family who wants to reside in the Finca for a long period, which means not less than 6 months.
In this way, people who can feel the appeal of our Dream will have the chance to really realize it if their desires and our dream will come together and, in the same time will be helped and guided by our experience. Once they are autonomous in everything and for everything, our desire is to bring our Project the "specific color" that everyone has, so we can paint together a real Artwork bringing each one a small or a great enrichment.

We are very grateful and we always ask for the volunteers’ help and participation, people who are looking for a short period of experience and who not only our door is open to, but also we want them to feel really welcome.
Thanks to the energy that we all can bear, whether in the long or short run, we could really bring this ground to its ancient splendor ... and even better, why not? And so making the Beauty either in and around us.

We hope to find your interest and hope that our dream can come true together!
