Very near the centre of Vilcabamba, the Ecolodge provides a human habitat within the only remaining semi-natural protected setting in the valley. It shares the reserve's name and serves as a "symbiotic" support to its conservation goals. Approximately a third of your payment is destined to the various management programs of Rumi Wilco: natural reforestation, riverbank repair from floods, nature trails, scientific research, community services and general maintenance. .
For these reasons, we encourage travellers who visit " VILCA-BAMBA " (plain of the sacred tree -the Wilco- to ancient Incas) to consider this as a place to stay.
RESPONSIBLE TOURISM IN THE MAKING
