Gaia Amazon EcoLodge and Spanish School

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.

Gaia es un lugar maravilloso 💚



Ser voluntária no Gaia Amazon Ecolodge foi uma experiência maravilhosa e inesquecível. Espaço e localização são excelentes, ótima comida, equipe gentil e divertida, proprietário atencioso, horários de trabalho de acordo com o combinado, e muitas atividades na natureza.
Eu e meu namorado passamos um mês incrível, trabalharmos em diferentes projetos, tivemos constante contato com turistas, pudemos relaxar, curtir e aprender muito sobre a Amazônia Equatoriana e a cultura local.
Recomendo 100%!



Viajo de moto com minha namorada e foi uma experiência incrível! Pudemos contribuir com varias atividades e projetos, assim como aprender muito sobre a cultura local e também nos divertir com varias atividades que são promovidas pelo Gaia Amazon Lodge. 100% recomendável!!!



Realmente la experiencia en Gaia fue muy grata, pude aprender muchas cosas sobre la selva y estar conectado con la naturaleza, la gente que trabaja allí es muy chévere y te ayudan y acompañan en todas las tareas. Recomiendo este lugar para cualquier viajero que quiera aprender nuevos saberes ya que la selva está lleno de esos.

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.
