Mecana is a local settlement of Bahia Solano that houses several families, this families work for the preservation and maintenance of the ecosystem of the pacific. Working together, making sustainable tourism, fishing and farming, the families in mecana have found a new way of working while preserving the environment.
Traditional hunting has stoped almost completely thanks to the educational work that Mecana EcoHotel has done. Former hunters have become local guides and caretakers of the Botanical Garden, and part of the income goes to local communities ensuring their wellbeing.
Mecana Ecohotel is more than a place to stay, it also puts its two cents in the preservation of the environment, wild species and diverse plants that make the Mecana region one of the beacons of biodiversity of the Colombian Pacific.
