Community Spotlight: Antonia Alvarez

In appreciation of Antonia and her family, the owners of La Palma Polo Hotel, we extend our gratitude for this remarkable location. As descendants of former Ecuadorian President Galo Plaza Lasso (1948 - 1952), they stand for democracy, progress, and innovation which align perfectly with the values of the LNB Renaissance Retreat.

As we gather in this breathtaking environment, let's honor President Galo Plaza Lasso's legacy and applaud Antonia for her dedication in making this unique experience possible. Together, we embrace the spirit of leaving normal behind and embark on our own journey of self-discovery and collaboration.

Galo Plaza Lasso, son of a former president and US ambassador, Leonidas Plaza, championed democratic values and saw economic improvement during his presidency. As the first Ecuadorian president in 28 years to complete his term, he emphasized freedom of the press, fair elections, and the export of bananas, fostering economic stability. His legacy is a testament to his impact on democracy and economic progress in Ecuador.
