LA CAMPIÑA DEL QUIJOS

OUR ECOLODGE AT THE GATES OF THE AMAZON

LA CAMPIÑA DEL QUIJOS FIELD STATION

You may not know what we are doing here; but, as soon as you enter, you will notice that the care of nature is our dedication, it is the aesthetics of sustainability, a landscape that combines human needs with a network of ecological arrangements. Everything has its reason to be and fulfills a function for the vitality of the ecosystem; hence, you are entering “a sustainable piece of the planet“.

This is an establishment dedicated to searching for local answers to the alterations that threaten the quality of the human habitat. We adapt and validate practices that protect the ecosystem and investigate the processes that make it more under pressure and vulnerable.
Our aim is to stimulate what it takes to act against these actions that people are capable of.
We have been working on this since the beginning of the last decade, and during this time we have modelled and transformed ancient Latin American lands into a sustainable ecosystem complex, which we have been able to share.

WHAT IS LA CAMPIÑA?

Nestled between small forests and green areas, in harmony with the landscape, there are several buildings scattered around, used for various services and work spaces. It’s a field surrounded by a ring of forests dominated by bamboo and two streams that mark the edge of the Station. An internal path is used as the centre, and a mural show where you can find each place, the orientation (00° 25′ 24″ S – 77° 50′ 58″ W) and the altitude compared to sea level (1,740m).

WHERE IS LOCATED?

In the eastern part of the Andes range, in the Napo region of Ecuador, you can find a small region with extraordinary nature. It is surrounded entirely by protected areas: Cayambe National Park – Coca, Antisana Ecological Reserve Sumaco National Park– Napo Galeras, among others.

WATER PARK

This place stands out because of its physical and aesthetic characteristics. It’s an example that shows what ecosystem landscaping can be done. It wasn’t always like this; there used to be a swamp that formed due to excessive cattle farming.
It is made up of diverse structures, each one with a specific function: water collection, sedimentation, underground water collection, fish farming, collecting organic lime, oxygenation, ornamentation and recreation, treatment for the devolution of nature, etc.
