Experience a Permaculture Eco Farm in Brazil

Welcome to Eco Caminhos, a sustainable Eco Farm situated in the beautiful mountains of the Atlantic Forest region in Brazil. We invite people from across the globe to join us and experience our simplistic lifestyle in a peaceful setting disconnected from the hectic world. At the farm we follow the permaculture principles and you can learn about and practice bioconstruction (natural building), agroforestry (syntrophic farming), and renewable energy. In your free time you can enjoy a nice healthy meal at a campfire, go hiking, go horseback riding in the mountains, jump under one of many amazing waterfalls, or play some fun board games with the other residents. We offer you Portuguese classes and the possibility to live at the farm with other residents; you could also submerge yourself in the local culture and language by doing a homestay with local families instead.
