Living in Shintuya was a breath of fresh air from my regular lifestyle. There's a lot of time to chill out so you can bring books or art supplies. Wili (the host) introduced me to other villagers. I loved playing with the local kids and dogs. He also made me medicinal tea when I was sick and was sensitive to my diet. Wili even brought me leaves that makes mosquito bites less itchy. He can tell you about every single plant and animal in the jungle. However, the language barrier was tough to overcome. I recommend doing a night hike so you can see exotic animals. It was an amazing experience!

There was so much growth to be had from this experience! I was able to expand spiritually and personally along with meeting the most amazing people! Even though I am a beginner in speaking Spanish everyone was so eager to help me through each conversation and day! I left knowing so much more about myself, the love of family, community and gratitude! My heart is full through learning the culture of togetherness! I've returned home with a more vivid view of life! Clear minded and ready to help my own community having more capability to receive and give my heart and soul!!

It is simply sublime how in touch with nature and oneself one gets while being there; additionally, the knowledge that Wili is continuously sharing is just unbeleivable, environmentally, socially and spiritually wise. Note however that Wili speak very limited English, so knowing basic Spanish is actually essential.

The place is amazing, the project itself has a lot of potential, I recommend this for adventurous people. It is a great opportunity to learn from the community since you get to live among them. I do not recommend this to those who like everything well organized, it is a starting non-formal project. Won't recommend this for female solo travelers either, the place is not really safe.

Estuve 8 días en este voluntariado con mi pareja. la ecovila defiende el patrimonio natural y cultural de la comunidad Harakbut. Para mí, ha sido una satisfacción participar en este proyecto, pese a lo limitado de la estancia, una estancia superior habría sido más provechosa. Sin embargo he visto mejorable el aprovechamiento del voluntariado, había días que no realizábamos tareas más allá de las propias de la convivencia. Mis mejores deseos para Willy y Cori, dos personas excepcionales para un proyecto excepcional.
