Guacamayo Tours information
Guacamayo Tours is owned by an Ecuadorian/New Zealand couple. The company arranges tours to Río Muchacho Organic Farm and offers fascinating ecocity tours, where travelers can learn about the grassroots community projects (organic shrimp farming, environmental education in schools, mangrove replanting and more) that have made Bahía a model for sustainable development. Three-hour tours take in a reforestation project, followed by a visit to the waterfront via ecotaxi (bicycle taxi) and a stop at Ecopapel, a paper-recycling center where discarded paper is combined with fruit and vegetable fibers to make lovely handcrafted paper products. Guacamayo also organizes a number of activities-based tours. Río Muchacho goods and products from the recycling workshop are on sale here.
