Our mission is to heal the world through nature!

Who we are

We are a family of healers of the Earth and of the human being who in 2006 created the Los Yapas Botanical Park, with the aim of becoming an example of socio-environmental restoration of deforested and polluted areas of the Ecuadorian Amazon.

From the very beginning, Los Yapas focused on the creation and strengthening of alternative practices in the social, cultural, economic and environmental spheres based on the conservation of habitats and local communities as well as the preservation of human health. We believe in the strong intertwinement between human and the environment and so we look at the recovery of our land and forests through the lens of the recovery of human health and vice-versa.
