Working with the organization was an amazing experience! The people there really want to share their culture and you live like locals. We did a lot of games with the kids which was really fun. You only have to teach on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday so on the other days there's time for adventures in the jungle. Nayer took us to beautiful places where we could swim in the river. I love that I got a sense of the culture because it's a lot different from my own. I also really felt relaxed during my stay. I would definitely recommend this experience!

I had a great time in Puerto Inca volunteering with the organization over the past 2 weeks. It is a place you wouldn't otherwise visit as a tourist and as such a unique experience. Monday to Wednesday is when you teach the children, which can be overwhelming at first but quickly adapted- the kids are amazing, and so welcoming to all the volunteers. You get a lot of free time in between where the organization take you on trips into the jungle which were loads of fun to enjoy along with the other volunteers

I went into this experience thinking I would be busy teaching often and working for the program but that wasn't my experience at all. Though I made fantastic connections with the local children and adults, I was surprised by the amount of independence I felt at SemillasLife. This was such a gift, as I found myself taking charge of my days and advocating for fun and adventure. I had so much free time to spend with the other volunteers and these connections ended up being one of the most important parts of the program for me. I loved teaching, spending time with other volunteers, and the nature

I spent two weeks at the organization and had a great time. The village we lived in was a lovely place surrounded by nature. You will meet travelers from all around the world, share everything and make friends for life! On a normal schoolday we taught two agegroups from late afternoon until the evening. What I enjoyed most was the daily life as a community and closeness to the nature. Every other day we did cool activities like having a bonfire or hiking to a waterfall. Chris and Anna are the best and want you to have the best expirience possible. You really notice that they care.
