Mission Statement

Ecological Consciousness

Community Description

Eco Truly Park is a beautiful, ecological, self-sufficient, artistic community on the Pacific Coast of Peru. Residents and volunteers live together according to the principles of non-violence, which is a core principle here, and visitors can learn and experience how it is possible to live happily in harmony with nature, others, and themselves.

The architecture and values of the community are inspired, in part, by traditional Indian teachings and lifestyle. We are the first lively ecological educational center of Peru. We have inspired similar successful projects in neighboring countries such as Chile, Ecuador, Colombia, and Bolivia.

In the last 22 years we have developed a unique organic awareness, cultivation, and ecological program run by an increasing number of members and volunteers. The community is 2.5 meters above sea level and previously consisted of completely sandy, unworkable land. Today our community is visited by both Lima residents and international visitors, who are able to experience an alternative way of life. The surrounding area of the Huaral province has thus been influenced positively in terms of the ecological consciousness of its people.

We are strategically located in Chacra y Mar beach, district of Aucallama, province of Huaral, one hour north of Lima, and very visible from the well known Panamericana Norte road.

Please drop in anytime to enjoy our ecological lodging (hotel), gardens, and restaurant–our doors are always wide open and everything is very reasonably priced!

Volunteer Program:
You are welcome to participate in our volunteer program. We hope we can provide you with the experience of living in a community and learning through helping.
