Itapoa Project is
partially funded by family in Puerto Lopez, the headquarters of Machalilla
National Park, right next to the beach. We have a choice of cabins and rooms
set in beautiful gardens, resembling a small piece of rainforest!
All rooms have their
own private bathroom with hot water and different sizes to accommodate
different number of people, from couples to families or friends, as well as,
dormitories. Breakfast and taxes included in the price. Take breakfast
overlooking the Pacific Ocean!
Here you can also
sample and buy our 100% natural Chocolate to Save the Rainforest in a spread or hot chocolate drink and our
coffee which is part of our Project to conserve the Choco Forest.
Among others from the
hostel it is possible to organize tours to the Isla de la Plata, the 'Poor Man’s
Galapagos' to see blue footed boobies amongst other special wildlife in the dry
forest on the Island. Whale watching is our highlight from June until September,
which we also organize.
