The idea behind Ricancie

RICANCIE was founded with the aims of protecting natural and cultural resources, improving the Kichwa families' quality of life and strenghtening their self-esteem, and promoting an alternative to intensive agriculture. We fight against the aggressive tourism that threatens the sociocultural and environmental balance. We support a self-managed development for and by the communities, giving new prospects for our children, in order to prevent them from migrating to the cities. We offer high quality community tourism services, with trained guides and staff.
