New special international|local socioeconomic intentional community cooperative and ecotourism|ecovillage project under-construction is now open to campers, backpackers, volunteers and tourists who don't mind inconvenience, excuse the mess we are just getting started!
Ekōbius International Cooperative is an open-source ecology and environmental model international research center under development. We are located at the end of the road and our property is bordered on three sides by protected lands under environmental, natural heritage and indigenous cultures. The focus of our center is to serve as an interpretation center, a community cooperative, and an open-academic international research center where students can visit to access our greater adjacent ecosystems.
In December 2013 our under development "under-construction" project has opened for volunteers and tent campers with primitive facility for $5 per night donation per person. We also have Bed and Breakfast accommodations for $30 and a hostel dorm for a $15 donation per night. Volunteers can stay on after three days as a guest. All visitors must also be Ekōbius members. Membership for $60.00 per year which includes a complete entrance and exit briefing and a special id card that is recognized in the area while traveling.
Currently we are developing a regional ecotourism training program and conditioning|acclimatization center in conjunction with an open-community school for our indigenous neighbors, scheduled to be open before April of 2014.
