The Experience

Actualmente las actividades son la ganadería de leche y el turismo, el objetivo es con los voluntarios transformar la propiedad para que la actividad principal sea el turismo ecológico (esto se lograra eliminando la ganadería poco a poco y sembrando todo tipo de plantas). Esperamos compromiso de trabajo y cumplimiento del horario, obedecer las recomendaciones por su seguridad. Queremos que el voluntario se sienta en casa! :)

La experiencia en Machay es única e increíble. 🤍 Francisco y Alegría son personas muy bellas, definitivamente hacer voluntariado en este lugar llena el alma. Aprendimos muchísimo sobre la historia del lugar, sobre flora y fauna, y a conectarnos con nosotros mismos en la naturaleza. Muchas gracias por todo Machay, esperamos volver pronto🌻

La experiencia en Machay ha sido genial, es un lugar muy tranquilo, con una historia increíble acerca de la cultura indígena del lugar. Francisco y Alegría me enseñaron muchas cosas acerca de preservación del sitio y de la Naturaleza. Me acogieron en su casa como una más de la familia. También aprendí mucho de la cultura Ecuatoriana con los anfitriones y en los alrededores.

Además, el lugar es muy espiritual que permite que las personas puedan recargarse de buena energía y encontrar un poco de paz y tranquilidad.
