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.
Es un lugar mágico! La comida es deliciosa y el ambiente es de lo mas CHEVERE! Niels es una persona admirable y siempre esta atento a que te encuentres bien. Sin duda, recomiendo Hacienda La Danesa para realizar voluntariado!
Great place with great people and great food! Definitely the best place to volunteer! You will not regret it!
