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. Visit our Eco Village - Eco truly Park outside Lima city in a Pacific place close to the sea, before or after to go Cusco.
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 of Peru. We have inspired similar successful projects in neighboring countries such as Chile, Ecuador, Colombia and Bolivia. http://ecological-farms.blogspot.com/ The community is located at 2.5 m above sea level and consisted previously of completely sandy, unworkable land. 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.
Become a happy person, enjoy helping without stress.
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 TrulyPark programs have become a model of sustainable alternative solutions for the extreme poverty of more than half of the Peruvian citizens (over 14 millionpeople) 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 over75,000 visitors since its inception.
Volunteers are allowed to stay at Eco Truly for as long as they wish. To get the most out of their experience, we estimate interns will want to commit themselves to at least 4 hours/day. Volunteers of all ages and backgrounds are welcome to join us; the only requirement is that you are enthusiastic about working with our community. Our basic accommodations are separate shared rooms for men and women; if you would prefer a separate, individual room in our hostel, we can provide that service for a slight cost.
We have a number of workshops that you can take advantage of including yoga, art, and Vedic philosophy. You are also more than welcome to help out in our kitchen, vegetarian restaurant or bakery (operational 2 days a week). If you are willing to get dirty, you are can work in our organic farm with our biodynamic agronomist who also imparts theoretical and practical classes on organic agriculture, preparation of humus, and composting in Spanish 2 days every 2 weeks. More than anything we hope that you make new friends, and have the experience of a lifetime.
In this moment we don't offer Spanish lessons but we do have a number of English speakers, and it is a very good place to practice Spanish in the performance of daily activities. People come here from all over the world, so we try and help out as much as possible to accommodate language difficulties.
Electricity in Peru is 220 Volts, alternating at 60 cycles per second, so you may need a voltage converter.

So I am truly greatful for my experience here at Eco Truly. I would not have expected to learn vedic ideas on my travels in South America but it has been most interesting. It seems it could be more fulfilling with a little more time. The volunteer opportunities spanned mostly in the kitchen and garden with a few other projects around. It would have been fun to do some building too. The good nature and positive attitudes I have witnessed have been refreshing. Thank you much for welcoming me, the way of life here is admirable.
My experience at Eco-Truly has taught me a lot about community, especially a community with spiritual and ecological ideals. I really enjoyed working in the bakery and the garden. This place has been very relaxing, with a peaceful atmosphere. A good place to take a rest from big cities. The food is great too. I am truly thankful for the wonderful birthday party the gave me as well. I felt very welcomed.

Thank You. I must say I felt very welcomed here at Eco Truly, even though I didn´t speak the language. During our stay, we worked in the kitchen, fields, and enjoyed being invited to the Ashram classes. I learned some different breads and pastries in the kitchen. While in the fields, I worked on my Spanish. The constructions are nice, as well as the farm, and the food… ¨muy bien!¨ There’s a good thing going here, and it gives me much hope. Thank you.
What a wonderful experience, to be here, at Eco Truly, to be a part of a community. For me, it has been a place of learning. Learning new ways of spiritual ritual and commitment, learning to speak spanish, and learning new forms of yoga. Also, it has been a place of meeting people who are also on their spiritual journey, and to connect with other human beings, to share life. It has been a gift to be able to spend time at Eco Truly, to be welcomed by all who live here, and to find yet another place in this world where I can call home. Thank You.
