About This Center
GoctaLab is a Lodge and also an Art residency located in the community of Cocachimba. It is situated in the Valley of Waterfalls, Bongara Province, in the high jungle in the Amazonas region. The incredible Gocta Waterfall (one of the tallest in the world) is the backdrop for this small town.
The place is built with local materials and techniques in a sustainable way. We grow a wide range of crops and fruits aiming for 100% self-sufficiency. Our visitors love the fresh food and especially our organic coffee, that is grown and processed on site. We're following the principles of Permaculture.
We currently host an intercultural residency program for artists and multiple disciplines focused on sustainable practices.
