Eco-Friendly Farmstay Tours, Ecuador - Eco-Tour - Ecuador

Stay with a local family on a homestay tour in this rural area of Ecuador and experience life on the farm for yourself. Guided farm tours available, and you're encouraged to get involved and help pick coffee, chocolate, bananas, oranges, etc. You can also visit sugarcane farmers to see them produce alcohol from sugarcane and get a taste of the results. This eco-tourism project is run by a reforestation charity (www.progresoverde.org), so you're invited to plant a tree for each night that you stay there as. It's a fun, friendly way to get a tour off the beaten track.
