Visitors and travelers from around the world are welcome to join residents and live and practice healthy habits.

Located next to the seaside in the Peruvian district of Aucallama, the Eco Truly Park is a group of cute mud houses that offer a return to natural, healthy living inspired by Indian practices. The cone-shaped shelters are made from locally sourced materials like mud, bamboo, recycled glass bottles and wood, which makes them fade in with their surroundings. The houses are decorated with Indian motifs and are situated between enormous sand dunes and the deep blue Pacific sea.

There isn’t a single straight line in the Eco Truly Park. The buildings are small, organic architectural shapes surrounded with lush plants. Visitors and travellers from around the world are welcome to join residents and live and practice healthy habits with the locals, sharing everything the eco-community has to offer. Mud walls, local stones, reclaimed wood, and other natural biodegradable materials make this Peruvian eco village truly enchanting.

Visitors can opt to take yoga lessons, reiki sessions, meditation classes, and many other natural therapies to unwind and leave the city’s stress behind. There are also many craft workshops to choose from including painting, dancing, compost making, and vegetarian cooking classes for kids and grown ups. The Eco Truly Restaurant offers a wide variety of vegetarian organic dishes made from vegetables grown in a garden just a few meters from the site. The fare is inspired by traditional Indian dishes and local techniques, and some meals are even prepared on a solar cooker.

The Eco Truly Park in Latin-American Peru sets an enchanting and healthy example for eco-conscious travelers that seek to look after themselves, and the world.

    Last year I visited Peru and it is truly a beautiful and unique country, Karikuy Tours Peru, the company from which I booked the Peru tour package had a project similar to this that they were trying to achieve. They told me that their profits went to this project that wanted to build self sustaining communities in the Andes. Very good concept, this is their website Ive been to similar communities in Cuba and the Southwest in the USA. If you could provide directions to this community it would be helpful for my next visit. Thanks!
