Hi, I‘m Anna, Semillas Life is a great Projekt! I really liked it. I unfortunately had to leave early but Chris (our host) was super supportive and helped me with it! He organised a Taxi for a fee to pick me up from the Airport wich made me feel safe. We did lots of trips and they were awesome. I learned a lot. The only thing that freaked me out a bit at first were the cockroaches and the billion mosquitos. But i got used to the for me, new standard of living quite quickly. If you bring a proper mosquito spray you should be perfectly prepared and ready to start your adventure. Loved it🫶🥰😍

Volunteering at Semillas' Life was a great experience. You live in the amazon forest and share quiality time with other volunteers coming from different places and cultures. The first days involve a lot of excursions around the city of Puerto Inca. And in the evenings (3d/w) you have english classes with students of different ages all eager to learn. Chris and Anna are very supportive and will make your stay as comfortable as possible. Thank you both for such a good time together!

My time in Puerto Inca was absolutely lovely. Chris is a responsible host who takes care of his volunteers. The kids and adult classes were fun.

This project has great potential but it still has a while to go until it's actually what is advertised. I had a great time here as I met some great people and enjoyed the day trips with Neyer.

However, organisation needs to be massively improved. There is no guidance of structure for the English lessons with the locals. Most of the volunteers have never taught before and there's no structure to the lessons, meaning that they're not as impactful as they could be. Also you only teach for 9 hours a week, so you have A LOT of free time.
