About.

This thoughtfully crafted experience is equal parts enjoyment and enrichment, delighting your senses while opening your mind to the possibility of a more natural, balanced, and sustainable way of life. Experience the taste of exquisite chocolate after touring the very farm where it’s made, learning from one of its passionate founders how they grow heirloom cacao organically in a harmonious forest of fruit trees, spices, and native trees. While sipping a glass of tropical fruit wine, you can see and learn how it’s made—a process you can easily do at home with your own seasonal fruit. What can be more enjoyable than swimming in emerald green lagoons under sparkling waterfalls? Taking in the spectacular views and diving into the refreshing waters in perfect tranquil seclusion, quietly leaving paradise exactly as you found it. And if you would like to enjoy the benefits of our yoga sessions, be assured you will be guided by an exceptionally knowledgable and experienced teacher.


All this happens in the lush, life-giving cloud forest of Ecuador, in a region renowned for its biodiversity and enjoyed for its ideal mildly warm temperatures, natural abundance, and colorful wildlife. Tucked into this verdant locale is Sueño de Vida, an eco-lodge and permaculture farm nestled in a green valley on a private nature reserve spanning twenty acres of wild and edible forests, animal pastures, natural springs and shimmering lagoons. Here, away from the buzz and artificial light of the city, morning, day, and night reveal their distinct personalities as your body synchronizes to a more natural rhythm. In the morning, wake refreshed to a sweet symphony of birdsong. Refresh during the day by floating in clear spring waters and nourish yourself with wholesome tasty foods prepared simply from local ingredients. Relax in the evening with stroll in the evening past the green fields alight with fireflies, and sleep deeply in the dark of night lulled by the gentle sounds of nature.
