Birdwatching expeditions include the eastern and western slopes, the amazon rainforest, Galapagos and the highly endemic ecosystems of southern Ecuador.

The Waorani Experience: This is our ultimate and most exclusive experiential tour.

For millennia, the Amazon rainforests of Ecuador, has been home to the Waorani (meaning ‘human beings’ or ‘the people’). Their language, Waoterero, has no relation with any other languages in the world and their origin is still a mystery for anthropologists. They are considered by other indigenous groups as “the fearless”.

Until 1956, they had never had any contact with the outside world.

The Waorani are outstanding hunters and feared warriors. Threatened by oil exploration and illegal logging, their hunter-gatherer society shifted to mostly living in settlements. They have a vast knowledge about their home, the Amazon Rainforest, which stems from a total reliance on the Natural world.

To preserve their culture and forests in a developing world, they have decided to open their doors and share their lives with visitors from around the world.

The Waorani Experience is a traveling camp, created to interact with an alternative society. An experiential journey designed to teach, share, empathize and awaken emotions.

A cultural immersion trip, to experience the real life of a group of hunters in the Amazon Rainforest.

Our mission is to awaken a Social and Environmental awareness of our clients and provide assistance and support to our partners, the Waorani communities throughout the Waorani territory.

  1. Hello Friends!
    La Gran Vista, located just outside San Isidro de General in South Pacific Costa Rica, is an Environmental Conservation Project where students, volunteers, and visitors can learn how a tropical organic farm functions. We are an Educational Institute where individuals can learn how to do things such as milking a cow, harvesting a mango tree, or using medicinal herbs. La Gran Vista gives everyone an opportunity to learn about life at its most basic form and exist in a fully sustainable community.
    We are happy to receive volunteers, student groups, families, and environmental interns from abroad. In addition, eco-tourism organizations send groups of volunteers to La Gran Vista every year to participate in the project.
    We offer opportunities for undergraduate groups, ASB, graduate students, and researchers to pursue specific interests or field work pertaining to sustainability and organic farming. Students looking to pursue a career in sustainability will have the opportunity to have practical experience that will be invaluable to their future endeavors.
    We believe that the best way to preserve our Planet is for everyone to be active and lend a helping hand to Mother Nature. The problems are right in front of us in the forms of greenhouse gases, massive landfills, pesticides in our food, and unclean drinking water. These problems make it EVERYONE’S responsibility to wake up and live a more responsible life.
    We cannot change the world in a day, but if we all do our part we can change the course of history. So start today and join us in our attempt to create a more sustainable future. We can receive your groups.
    Thanks for your help and please contact us for more information about La Gran Vista.
