I had the BEST experience at the reserve. The Ortega family is incredibly kind and welcoming and I felt right at home. Marisol taught me about indigenous plant based medicine, nutrition, and cooking. The family grows everything from cacao, plantains, bananas, avocados, yuca, tomatoes, mandarin, fresh herbs and soo much more. We used the crops from the farm to cook at home & in the restaurant. Marisol helped me learn how to make artisanal jewelry, purses, and sew clothing. Their nephews & cousins all live nearby and always invited me on trips to waterfalls, rivers, hikes, etc. A great family!

Mi expiriencia en la reserva feu genial! Marisol y Octavio son personas maravillosas, muy tranquilos, amables y con gran corazon. Marisol me enseño mucho sobre cocinar comida ecuatoriana, sobre plantas medicinales y como hacer artesanias. El lugar es muy lindo, en plena naturaleza. La comida siempre era muy rica y me gusto que la preparamos de productos del lugar. Recomiendo mucho estar at la reserva!

La experiencia en la casa fue enriquecedora. Los anfitriones son personas extraordinarias, siempre atentos y muy flexibles. Aprendí mucho sobre la cultura y las tradiciones. Las comidas, preparaba con mucho amor Mari y siempre comíamos juntos, ellos también compartían su tiempo y cariño conmigo todos los días, me sentía parte de la familia. Las tareas son muy variadas y se puede aprender de todo... Me encantó vivir este intercambio, a todos los llevo en el corazón con mucho amor! Lo recomiendo a cualquier viajero. Un abrazo Mari y Luís ♥️
