I had a great time in Atacames!. The environment is very nice and friendly. the guest house is a very willing man. Is going to help you with everything you need. We went on excursions, walks on the beach and eat at local restaurants. Dont forget to try bolones at the local restaurants. The city maybe is not very safe but with the guest house you feel safe and nothing to afraid of. You feel totally safe. I am very happy for this experience. I saw a new place and the local tradition. I liked this tropical experience..

Irida to date has been one of my best volunteers and despite coming from Greece, one of the most beautiful places on the globe, she never ceases to marvel at the landscapes of Ecuador and its gastronomy.
On the other hand, in the hostel he was always up to the task in helping to make everything clean and in the food for my fish.
I recommend her to any Hostes, an excellent person and a beautiful character.



Fue una buena experiencia, me gusto mucho conocer Atacames, Esmeraldas. El host es un buen guía me llevo a conocer el cañon suicida, les recomiendo llevar gorra y mucho protector solar jsjsj El host cumplio con lo prometido las tres comidas. Me gustaria volver en mis proximas vacaciones de la universidad!

Es mi 1era experiencia como voluntaria y no me agradó, esperaba conectarme con lo que se busca, but fue imposible. Mis labores fueron sencillos, literalmente solo hacía las comidas para el host y para mí, por lo que no aprendí nada. Además me tuve que retirar a mi ciudad 10 días antes de lo acordado, ya q el host tuvo un "viaje inesperado". la casa es cool, pero me sentí incómoda porq no tenía privacidad, hasta me pidió que no salga sola si no es con él. (yo me escapé jij) en el cuarto hay un sensor de humo, pero es una cámara. Recomiendo que aclaren sus labores, tiempo y días libres.

Damy,fue una excelente huesped,lástima los dias que estuvo no llegaron huéspedes y no había que hacer mayor cosa.Por su edad parece sus padres no confían mucho en ella y llegó acompañada de su mamacita,quie
se hospedo 2 dias.Luego ,parece en algo tenían razón pues se escapó el fin de semana sin avisar. Dijo se encontró con un amigo y viajaron a un pueblo cercano, pero fue muy preocupante.Para colmo tuve viaje de negocios al exterior y no podía dejarla sola.Llame a su mami y le expliqué la situasion y estuvo de acuerdo con su regreso.El comentario de confundir un detector de humo con cámara me parece perverso y más se ve como represaria y frustración por no haber completado su tiempo en mi Hostal y quien sabe seguir con sus salidas furtivas, estando bajo mi responsabilidad con su mamacita, a quien le di mi palabra cuidarla.
