My experience at the lodge was unforgettable. I had the opportunity to learn about the local culture and also the fauna and flora. The host offers daily the lodge tours that are simply fascinating. The meals served are delicious. And I was lucky enough to have a suite room all to myself. Honestly the benefits this host offers are better than a volunteer could ask for. There were some days with bigger clientele that I worked more than expected but it is acceptable taking into account the benefits granted by the host. Gracias Agustín, Beto, Indira, Sindy, Diana e Roberth por todo ❤️

Gracias Millena por todo tu tiempo! Te deseamos lo mejor para ti...



I had an incredible experience volunteering at the lodge. The team is wonderful and the Lodge is surrounded by nature and animals. One of my favorite part was helping with translation at the tours that take place 2 times a day. My Spanish improved by a lot and I learned so much about the rainforest, different plants and their functions, animals and the Kichwa culture. Besides the tours are fun and diverse. Since the lodge is quite small the contact to the tourists is very personal which creates a great atmosphere. Food is amazing and there is a lot to explore as well as the option to relax.

The place it's amazing and also the people who work there. Augustin it's a wonderful person and make the stay really enjoyable! The most interesting part is partecipating in the activities, but it's not always possible, and if you staying at the lodge is relaxing but can also be boring. The work hours are not always respected and for the day off you have to ask otherwise you won't have. Unfortunately for some days I had to work more because I was the only volonteer there.

Thanks a lot Pun, we had a great time with you. We will miss you!



I stayed for 3 weeks, had 2-3 days off, for half of the time I worked 10-12 hrs each day, and the rest 4-5 hrs per day. The hours depend on how many guests and volunteers there are. The room for volunteer was decent, the food was great. The main tasks were to help serve 3 meals, clean up afterward, and translate for guests who don't speak Spanish. The tours were fun. I learned SO much from the amazing staff, Roberto, Indi and Diana. Overall, it was a fruitful and interesting experience, the downside was the long hours. I suggest talking to Agustin in advance to see if it's smth you're ok with.
