The Amazon Jungle is amazing! Lush vegetations, bird noises and an interesting community. I volunteered for two weeks, I learned about their indigenous culture as well as others, saw their speciality crafts, participated in a couple rituals and socialized with people from all over the world. We were a group of 6 volunteers at the beginning. Everyone was very nice and made an effort to speak in English since my Spanish is very weak. I do recommend you go if you’re Spanish is good because the family doesn’t speak English. Also make sure to confirm what project you’d like to work on.

I absolutely recommend Waponi Amazon, as I had the best time I could imagine breathing the Amazon everyday, while there. There is soo much you can learn and Moi and his parents will be happy to guide you through it all during your stay. Even though they are new to worldpackers, the community has already received more than 200 volunteers from all over the world!! So they know how to handle people from outside and provide everything that’s needed. Everything met my expectations or were even greater: food, accommodation, jungle, knowledge shared, hosts, work. ❤️

Sin duda es una experiencia que recomiendo.
El trabajo se hace muy llevadero, sobre todo cuando se hace en equipo.
El contacto con la naturaleza, la gente de la comunidad, las costumbres, culturas te hace sumergirte totalmente en la energía del lugar.
Es una experiencia que te cambia a muchos niveles.
Moi es un genial anfitrión, al igual que su familia.
Me siento muy agradecida por todo lo vivido y experimentado.

Mi experiencia en la comunidad fue increíble, es un lugar hermoso, inmerso en la naturaleza y la familia de Moi es genial, los adoro. El trabajo en la escuela fue arduo, pero demasiado gratificante y lo recomiendo 100%. Ojalá que si haces este voluntariado puedas quedarte un mes completo para generar cambios reales en el nivel educativo, como fue en mi caso. Siento que Moi debería estar más presente en todo el proceso, así como hacer coordinación previa con la profesora, comentar a los voluntarios cuáles son las problemáticas a nivel de escuela, etc. Facilitar que tu trabajo sea más organizado

Mi experiencia en Waponi Amazon fue realmente buena, Moi es un gran anfitrión que siempre está dispuesto a explicarte cosas y contar historias. Lastimosamente me quedé muy poco tiempo pero fue suficiente para conectar con la selva y aprender mucho de la cultura local, definitivamente volvería y lo recomiendo a quienes buscan un respiro de la ciudad y conectar con la naturaleza.
