Retreat location

Wild Child is a retreat center that curates unique transformational experiences and fun adventures for purpose-driven travelers who seek discovery, connectivity, and fulfillment through positive engagement with people, culture, and nature. Wild Child Village is rooted on the edge of a rainforest in La Reserve Manabi, a 70-acre Eco-Community in the hills above Ayampe. With views of the ocean and mountains, the village is discretely tucked in the canyon for privacy, solitude, and room to grow.

Ecuador is one of the most biodiverse countries in the world. The Andes, Amazon Rainforest, Highlands and the Galapagos Islands are four diverse and unique regions of the country, not to mention the surf is awesome too!!!
