I am very thankful for this amazing experience in the Amazon of Ecuador. The time here is and was stunning. I learned a lot, joined activities, helped wherever necessary, connected to the locals, worked digital, participated in local events, went on spontaneous trips, enjoyed the nature to the fullest and so much more.
If you are searching for an experience were you'll be part of the decision, if you are open minded and want to get in touch with the community and learn about their culture, if you love the nature and if you have a hands-on mentality this is the perfect place. Thanks Agustin!

A great experience. Time for work is spent helping with setting up meals when the lodge is busy. We were welcome to attend all activities and spanish lessons. Augustine (the owner) is a very kind guy with everyones best interst in heart. It was a pleasure to stay with him. he took us in to town for the New Year celebration which was nice to have over the Holidays away from home.

I have no words to describe my days in Gaia. I seeked the jungle and there would be no better place to be rather than here. Augustin is unstopable, has such a good heart and really understands the meaning of volunteering. Jaime (guide), Isaias (cooker) and Ivan (multifunctional) are from de Kichwa indigenous culture and welcomed me with a warm smile as soon as I got to Gaia and now we are inseparable friends. Only one bad thing: the mosquitos xD If you ever decide to come bring a lot of repelent! I will remember this experience fondly and everytime I think about it tears come up to my eyes :)
