Jota was a great host, such a human person, attentive and knowledgeable about Leticia.

Volunteering at Casa de las Palmas Hostel is a great but also challenging experience. The hostel and the other volunteers are great, there is a swimming pool and exercise area, only the volunteer's room is a bit small and messy. Sometimes volunteers have to sleep in hammocks if there are more volunteers than beds, and also you won't keep the same bed during your stay. I really liked translating in the jungle tours but it would have been great to get the two agreed free days in a row afterwards. More coordination of the volunteer's working schedule would have been helpful.

Both Jota and Jose are wonderful hosts which will make you feel home from the first second. They are also always happy to help and very flexible with everything. I was able to choose exactly ther dates I wanted, extend my stay, go for some days away in between... The hostal is a really nice place, great to meet people and working in reception is relatively easy. If you are able to speak both english and spanish you will also have the chance to work as a translator on the tours their agency offers, which is a great experience!
Recommend 100 per cent volunteering here!

Casa las Palmas was a great experience. Being a translator in the Amazon was somenthing amazing and the tasks in the hostel (mostly reception) were very easy. The owners Jose and Jota are just great; They are super easygoing, flexibale with working days and always available, they make you feel at home. The hostel has great vibes and this volunteering was a great opportunity to learn about the Amazonas, to meet locals and learn about the indigena community.
Highly reccomanded.

Mi experiencia en Casa las Palmas ha sido increíble! Jota y Jose son super amables y muy buena gente, el ambiente con los otros voluntarios y voluntarias es genial y se siente como una gran familia.
He aprendido un montón de la experiencia, en recepción, con los tours...y muchas cosas sobre la vida y cultura en el Amazonas.
Un lugar único al que merece la pena volver!
Gracias por todo!!
