What is Enipein Ecotourism?

Enipein Ecotourism was founded by Marino Eperiam and his family in 2012 through a generous grant by the FSM government. Marino envisioned a space that both preserves Pohnpeian culture and share it with the outside world. Enipein Ecotourism provides lessons for Pohnpeian youth on traditional skills, such as dance, basket weaving, and sakau ceremonies, while also accommodating guests from around the globe. The compound includes three large traditional huts, a stage for cultural presentations, and a large local swimming hole. During the day, visitors can paddle through mangrove forest, visit dozens of Pohnpei's world-famous waterfalls, go fishing, scuba dive, or see the notorious ruins of Nan Madol!
