GAIA lodge and Spanish school is a small venture located in the Amazon Rainforest, one of the most beautiful and bio diverse areas of the world. Our goal is to offer great services in a familiar atmosphere. Our services, activities and tours are designed to offer a complete immersion in the nature and culture of the Amazon Rainforest. All participants can be part of our staff, and benefits our services at the same time, such as spanish courses, activities and tours.
Being the owner, I am flexible and friendly person always ready to support my staff. I maintain friendly relationships with every person involved in GAIA as well as the indigenous communities living nearby. Most of our staff is native indigenous that speaks Kichwa and Spanish. They are welcoming and friendly people always open to learn new things. Our volunteers can expect to be treated with respect and kindness in a friendly atmosphere. Be sure that we'll also take a good care of your safety and comfort, we reseve tourists and students, so everything is thought to make them (and volunteers) feeling at home.
A great experience. Time for work is spent helping with setting up meals when the lodge is busy. We were welcome to attend all activities and spanish lessons. Augustine (the owner) is a very kind guy with everyones best interst in heart. It was a pleasure to stay with him. he took us in to town for the New Year celebration which was nice to have over the Holidays away from home.
Gaia is a fantastic place! Agustin, the owner, is an awesome person and ensures everything is perfect for the staff and guests. The food is good, the hotel comfortable, the tours very fun, and the other staff members lovely whom were always helping me out, with the tasks and spanish (and even some kichwa). Its an experience different from everything i had before and really recommend for it for any kind of person . Pakrachu!
GAIA AMAZON LODGE AND SPANISH SCHOOL exceed my expectations immensely! Agustín and his team staff are great hosts! All in Gaia is made with love and I recommend the Gaia experience to all people who want to evolve as human beings and build a better world.
Agustín, yo te agradezco insmensamente!
I have no words to describe my days in Gaia. I seeked the jungle and there would be no better place to be rather than here. Augustin is unstopable, has such a good heart and really understands the meaning of volunteering. Jaime (guide), Isaias (cooker) and Ivan (multifunctional) are from de Kichwa indigenous culture and welcomed me with a warm smile as soon as I got to Gaia and now we are inseparable friends. Only one bad thing: the mosquitos xD If you ever decide to come bring a lot of repelent! I will remember this experience fondly and everytime I think about it tears come up to my eyes :)
Ótima experiência em meio a selva, conhecemos muitos lugares paradisíacos, fizemos tours por rios, cachoeiras, trilhas, tribos e muito mais alem de ter aulas de espanhol com ótimos professores por duas semanas. Augustin e sua equipe estão sempre prontos a ajudar, as acomodações são incríveis e a imersão na Amazônia é total.
