About EcoPaz

People + Nature = EcoPaz

Lush Monteverde forest. Two people on trail.

EcoPaz takes inspiration from the three ethics of permaculture: Care for the Earth, Care for People, and Fair Share. Parque EcoPaz is a community park with a global view. We fervently nurture the park’s 22 rolling acres of reimagined farmland and verdant Monteverde forest in conservation efforts while also providing locals and visitors a community space for playing, learning, growing, and sharing. The park is a home to many plants, birds, insects, and animals with whom we also respectfully share the space.

Parque EcoPaz is a hidden gem located only one kilometer from the town center of Santa Elena, Monteverde.

We are conveniently located on the road to some of Monteverde's most visited tourist destinations, so stop by between tours for a picnic or a pick-up game and enjoy a truly local experience.

"He who plants a tree loves others besides himself. " (T. Fuller)

Your donation directly supports the sustainability of the park and the park's contribution to the well-being of people and nature in our local and global communities. For every donation, we will plant one of our own native tree saplings in the park. Among its many other benefits, our reforestation work helps to connect our forest to the Bellbird Biological Corridor, the "nature superhighway" conservation project from Monteverde to the Pacific coast. Thank you for your support!
