Wuhan Corona Covid19 Cure Casualty
May 26, 2020 marked the 10th anniversary of our ownership of Madre Tierra Resort and Spa here in the Valley of Longevity, Vilcabamba, Ecuador. It is with sadness that I write to inform you that on June 5, 2020 our family made the decision to close the business and convert the hotel rooms to long term rentals (weekly and monthly). Our faithful staff was given severance packages and released from employment on that date according to EC labor laws. Tourism appears to be highly restricted (Covid19 tests, quarantines, lack of international and domestic transportation options) at this point with little reason for optimism in the near future. Many of us relocated to the Valley of Longevity where we enjoy a generally healthy environment with clean air, pure water, clean food, low cost of living and lower stress than a lot of the world. After Covid19 I expect there will be a new influx of residents seeking the same. I invite you to become part of our conscious community!
