  • Description

    Description

    Our family settled on the Galápagos Islands in 1960.
    We are very united, we like to share what we have lived, our present, and to build dreams together.
    Something very important is that we get along better with the humble and all-terrain people, who prefer to have a quiet afternoon in front of the sea instead of a crazy cafe inside the city.

    Nuestra familia se asentó en las islas Galápagos en 1960.
    Somos muy unidos, nos gusta compartir lo que hemos vivido, nuestro presente, y construir sueños juntos.
    Algo muy importante es que nos llevamos mejor con la gente humilde y que sea todo terreno, que prefiera tener una tarde tranquila frente al mar en vez de una cafetería loca dentro de la ciudad.

    We have a medium-sized property in the upper part of Santa Cruz Island, in the Media Luna sector.
    My father Antonio works here every day and requires his help for this.
    It has plantations of plantain, banana, coffee, citrus and tries to plant other things depending on the season.
    It also has a bit of cattle and organic / creole / natural hens.
    The farm is 2.5 km away from the house.

    At home also my mother Silvia, makes fruit ice cream with cow's milk and artisan food. Her specialty is plantain, ripe bananas, cassava, corn, potatoes and she has a small cafeteria next to the house, where she sell all her delightfull meals.
    We also require help in the daily maintenance of the house as the garden and inside the house.
    We have a kitten named Max at home.

    In the afternoon you are free to visit the island. Weekends are also free to do tourism on the islands.

    We expect you to help us for 4-5 hours per day, 5 day per week. Coming to stay with us really means you are a hardworking person, have a countryside experience a willing to immerse yourself in a different culture.

    We also need you to speak a little bit spanish so you can communicate with my parents.

    Tiene siembras de plátano, guineo, café, cítricos e intenta sembrar otras cosas dependiendo de la temporada.
    También tiene un poco de ganado vacuno y gallinas orgánicas/criollas/naturales.
    La finca queda a 2,5 Km de la casa.

    En casa también mi madre Silvia, hace helados de frutas con leche de vaca y comida muy rica. Su especialidad son las tortillas de plátano verde, maduro, yuca, maíz, papa. También tiene una pequeña cafetería alado de su casa, y es ahí donde vende sus delicias.
    Requerimos ayuda también en el mantenimiento diario de la casa como el jardín y dentro de la casa.
    Tenemos en casa un gatito llamado Max.

    En la tarde es libre para conocer las islas. Los fines de semana son libres también para hacer turismo en las islas.

    Lo que esperamos es que trabajen junto a nosotros por 4-5 horas al día por 5 días a la semana. Hospedarte con nosotros significa que seas una persona de trabajo duro, dispuesto a vivir en un sitio alejado y dispuesto a sumergirte en una cultura diferente.

    También requerimos que además hables un poco de español para que puedas comunicarte con mis padres.
