Secret Garden Cotopaxi

We are one of the best hostels in Ecuador, located close to the Cotopaxi National Park and surrounded by 8 different volcanoes. It’s a great place to stay and volunteer if you love nature, hikes and cool projects. Here we offer many activities to our guests and volunteers including hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding. As a volunteer your main task is leading two hikes that we offer to our guests. One is a 2 h hike to our local waterfall and the second one is the hike to the Pasochoa collapsed Vulcano, approx 5h and 4200m. Also helping to serve the meals is part of the job. During free time volunteers can go to any of the tours we offer, hang out in the hammocks overlooking Cotopaxi, relax in the jacuzzi, or play with our dogs and llamas. We do not have any WiFi, but we have a computer with internet connection you can use anytime.

Our volunteers spend a lot of time hanging out with guests from all over the world and with the local staff (kitchen, Cleaning, ground), so volunteering here is also an amazing opportunity to meet local people and improve your Spanish level. I'm Olivier, the Manager of the hostel, i volunteered a while here in the past and now i'm back to work here. A good level of English is mandatory!
