  • Description


    My family lives in the small village of Duraznillo which got connected to the road only 2 years ago. We are about 50 families who live from the organic agriculture of coffee, corn, bananas, yuca, palta, beans, camote, caña, cacao, granadilla, chirimolla, and other fruits and vegetables.
    My family mainly grows coffee but we are also taking care of my garden, bee houses, and reforestation projects.

    There is also the possibility of staying in beautiful Chachapoyas and supporting me in my small restaurant and the daily life, like taking care of my children (1 year
    and 3 years)
    Hola a todos los interesados en hacer este tipo de voluntariado les ofrezco una nueva alternativa que si desean pueden quedar en chachapoyas

    We need an english teacher for about 20 childrens from 9 to 15 years old.
    You are also welcome to help us on our small organic farms.
    The rest of the day you can enjoy the hikes and people.

    There are many Inca and Chachapoya archeologic sites arround here that I can show you and give explanations about because I am also a tourist guide for all the Amazonas region.

    Many volunteers at the same time is not a problem, 50 other families will be glad to host you!

    We eat what we grow plus rice and pasta. We have the great idea of inviting you to a different family each day for the meals, which will allow you to see differents cuisines and lifestyles.
    Vegetarians are welcome too.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We dont have internet so we cant read your messages and phone reception is not at its best.

    I will organize a pickup taxi that will take you to Duraznillo. It’s a 3 hour drive with great views on the mountains surrounding our region, passing the highest point with an altitude of 3500m. Duraznillo is located at about 2000m in the district of Pisuquia, Province de Luya, Region Amazonas.

    Hope to see you soon!
