The Experience

Our lodge is a small eco lodge and Spanish school. Always we need hands in the administration to help us with English to assist our guests and students. Volunteers will engage in coordination of activities and tours, provide the information, English translators in the tours when required. We seek our activities documented in photos, make videos and everything to help us promote ourselves.

The food is good, the hotel comfortable, the tours very fun, and the other staff members lovely whom were always helping me out, with the tasks and spanish (and even some kichwa).

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 :)

Ótima experiência em meio a selva, conhecemos muitos lugares paradisíacos, fizemos tours por rios, cachoeiras, trilhas, tribos e muito mais alem de ter aulas de espanhol com ótimos professores por duas semanas. Augustin e sua equipe estão sempre prontos a ajudar, as acomodações são incríveis e a imersão na Amazônia é total.

A great location and definitely a lot to learn, and experience here. The setting is true amazon experience and you can learn a lot from the great staff. We wish our Spanish was better, as we would like to communicate better with others - But we did learn more Spanish while at Gaia Amazon Lodge.
