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.

The place it's amazing and also the people who work there. Augustin it's a wonderful person and make the stay really enjoyable! The most interesting part is partecipating in the activities, but it's not always possible, and if you staying at the lodge is relaxing but can also be boring.
The work hours are not always respected and for the day off you have to ask otherwise you won't have. Unfortunately for some days I had to work more because I was the only volonteer there.

Se você esta buscando um lugar tranquilo para se conectar com a natureza e aprender um pouco sobre a selva o Gaia é o melhor lugar. As tarefas são simples e tranquilas, no teu tempo livre podes fazer todos os tours que os turistas fazem sem pagar nada e a comida é muito gostosa e bem servida. Estive doente por alguns dias e todos foram super compreensíveis e me ajudaram no que podiam. Agradeço a Augustin e Beto pela oportunidade e pelo tempo muito bom que passei por aqui.

My experience at GAIA LODGE was unforgettable. I had the opportunity to learn about the local culture and also the fauna and flora. The host offers daily Amazon tours that are simply fascinating. The meals served are delicious. And I was lucky enough to have a suite room all to myself. Honestly the benefits this host offers are better than a volunteer could ask for. There were some days with bigger clientele that I worked more than expected but it is acceptable taking into account the benefits granted by the host. Gracias Agustín, Beto, Indira, Sindy, Diana e Roberth por todo ❤️
