Desscription of initiative carried out by Caimito Sustentable involving a communal tourist hosue

The Caimito Sustentable Association seeks to strenghten the community through collective efforts for the ecologically conscious development of tourism and agriculture in Caimito

Problems and Purpose

The main goal of Caimito Sustentable is to promote eco-friendly agroecological practices and sustainable tourism projects. The association is also actively involved in curbing initiatives that threaten the harmony of the territory and the community, such as irresponsible logging, eucalyptus plantations, large-scale tourism and the advancement of drug trafficking networks in the region. The association seeks to strengthen the social fabric of the community through mingas, collective meals and open meetings for the ideation and implementation of local projects.

Background History and Context

After the El Niño weather phenomenon in 1997, the Caimito area was partially isolated from the rest of the province. This contributed towards it being one of the best conserved areas of the coastal area of ​​Ecuador nowadays, its biodiversity being endemic to the biogeographic choco. In 2007, the inhabitants of Caimito began an assembly process that gave way to various initiatives for community organization. The Caimito Sustentable Association, which started its work in 2012, prioritizes the development of the community along with the conservation of the territory for future generations.
