I have seen a few amazing places in Ecuador. Visa is easy to get and we can co own property.

I am brainstorming to create and would love help.
what are you looking for in a community?
what is important to you?

I have a vision and perhaps we are in alignment.
I found a place with Tranquility, Beauty, Privacy 3 miles from Otavalo, the Valley of Eternal Spring.

on 37+ acres on a dead end road, with a total of 5 Homes plus 3 additional buildings and a complete infrastructure
we could do shares that would start at 5% owners at 20k...we can co-habitat, build, create.
The property has 5 houses well constructed already! The 4 houses can be utilized on a revolving system with owners shares. The 4 houses around 1300 sft each and a main house is around 3500 sft with commercial kitchen and dining for 20. rooms could be transformed into yoga, meditation, massage spa like. while living in an amazing transformational clean air environment.
We could have artists, health care, permaculture, visionaries, festivals.

We can grow fruits and vegetables year round, this property is on the top of a hill with incredible views and sunrises!
create eco dwellings and have the houses for income?

what do you say?

these are times to come together...pooling resources and knowledge we can create a brighter future

I am very familiar with the area having lived outside of Banos de Auga Santa in 2001 for 9 months,
and again, leaving a year and a half ago.

I loved the area in 2001.

Now Ecuador is over run with people from the united states and totally ruined.

I happily moved back to Argentina where people are not dogmatic about how they live,
that others should live the same manner,
as too many from the u.s. are pushing on the Ecuadorian people.

Diversity of manner of living life is essential!!!

I happily left the u.s. 24 years ago and would NEVER EVER return!

I resonate with your dreams and ideas as my partner from British Columbia and I are in the midst of creating something similar for ourselves and others.

I wish you total success in creating your space.

thank you Jun for your view
The U.S . has been having an impact all over
I found it so funny traveling and hearing "they dont have this or that??" "how can they live that way" from american tourists  to another country...if you wanted it like "home" then staying
there is probably best. The money brought to countries from US is a blessing an maybe a curse. But its really any wealthy country...China, UK ect
I would like to have some people who have the desire to live in harmony with the earth...where we can create and explore the beauty of our soul.
Ecuador was one thought...truly I can be many places and would work out...I have been looking at Portugal as well.
Perhaps where will manifest
blessings on the journey

Hi Craig,

This place looks amazing! Whatever came of this? I’m looking for the same. I’ve considered Portugal as well. I’m very interested and ready as soon as possible. Please let me know. EL11@criptext.com

We could work together in the future.
For people that seek a more remote and quiet experience as well...

I could very much be interested in helping establish something, but my money is tied up for the next two years at least. If work exchange is of interest you've got a viable candidate here with long standing interests in agroforestry and eco-village design. Feel free to private message - be happy to hear more about this vision. The location looks insane. Best of luck.
