Additional Info:Eco Truly Park is a beautiful Peruvian Pacific coast ecological, artistic community founded on Vaisnava principles, strategically located on Chacra y Mar beach, a district of Aucallama, in the province of Huaral, one hour by bus or car (63 km) north of the capital city, Lima.

We live together according to principles of non-violence, simple living and elevated thinking, and visitors can learn and experience how it is possible to live happily in harmony with nature, others, and themselves. We are looking for people that are basically open-minded and want to practice tolerance, compassion and patience. The architecture and values of the community is in part inspired by Indian traditional teachings and lifestyle. We are the first lively ecological educational center in Peru and have inspired similar successful projects in neighboring countries such as Chile, Ecuador, Colombia and Bolivia. The community is located at 2.5 m above sea level and consisted previously of completely sandy, unworkable land, but in the last 18 years we have developed a unique organic awareness cultivation and ecological program run by an increasing number of residents and volunteers, with the goal of becoming fully sustainable and self-sufficient. Today our community is visited by the people from Lima and all over the world, who are able to experience an alternative way of life. The surrounding area of Huaral has thus been positively influenced in terms of the development of ecological consciousness. According to recent professional studies, Eco Truly Park programs have become a model of sustainable alternative solutions for the extreme poverty that impacts more than half of Peruvian citizens (over 14 million people) living in rural and urban marginalized villages. Nowadays, Eco Truly Park is also recognized as an important tourist destination by local government and the Peruvian media, receiving over 75,000 visitors since its inception. Basic things we suggest that bring with you:

- A sleeping bag - Toilet paper - Notebook and pen - Sandals - Flashlight - Yoga mat (Optional) - Identity documents (and photocopies!) - Towels for the warm season (December to March) - Sunscreen or sunblock (summer) - Warm clothes (April to September) - The will to have an open mind and be happy.

-NO drugs including alcohol and cigarettes please.

Unfortunately, greenwashing does exist. BUT there are conetluss products out there that are truly eco-friendly. The key is simply knowing what to look for when evaluating a product's green-worthiness.
