  • Description


    Hi I´m Joyce. As a family we feel so happy to have the opportunity to enjoy this cultural exchanged. Since 5 years ago, we were spending wonderful moments with volunteers from all over the world. The best thing is that now volunteers are still continue being our friends :)

    Here in Iquitos, we usually go to many different places with the volunteers in orden to enjoy time together and also to show them our beautiful Amazon Jungle. Also, when we are at home, we love to cook and share recipes from our countries.

    The main reason I do this cultural exchange is to encourage my children to practice their english. The best of all is that they speak and learn english in a very fun and natural way.

    Now I have 3 children (Juan Diego, 9 years old; Alberto, 5 years old and Fabrizio, 3 years old). My boys are excellent hosts. My children are very kind and super friendly. Actually, they ask me to bring volunteers at home, because they really enjoy this experience.

    Our home is located in Iquitos (Peruvian Amazon). Our house is a peaceful and beautiful place rounded by trees. We also have a big swimming pool, big yard and five rooms.

    You will be amazed by the wonderful Amazon jungle!
