Hacienda La Danesa
Founded in 1870. Hacienda La Danesa is located one hour drive from Guayaquil, in the warm embrace of the wonderful Andes. It is a 1200 acres property with dairy cattle, horses, dogs, rivers, and trails. A few years ago, the Hacienda became a luxury lodge for high-end travelers seeking authentic experiences off the beaten trails.
Volunteers staying at Hacienda La Danesa will live an authentic and unique experience connecting with locals and working in a nice and peaceful environment with interesting and well-educated guests.
Hey! This is Niels. I am in charge of the hospitality side of my family's hacienda. I am 30 years old and live between the city and the farm. I am pretty easy going and I quite enjoy the hacienda and the company of our guests. When it is time to work, I work really hard when I am off, I am all about laissez les bons temps rouler.
You may expect to feel like part of the family as soon as you arrive to the farm. We have a nice working atmosphere and great people in the team.
