    CURRENTLY RECEIVING VOLUNTEERS TO WORK IN THE GARDEN & MAINTENANCE


    We are looking for volunteers to work in our beautiful hostel near the Beach of La Serena.
    It is a beautiful place with a huge garden full of palm trees and flowers. it is very relaxing and beautiful.
    We have many terraces, bbq, a place to make fires, tables outside, and hammocks and a nice bar........ and the best of all is that it´s just 8 minutes walking distance from the beach, which has stunning sunsets every afternoon.

    At the beach you can find the nicest restaurants and bars of the city. Also a 13 kms cycle path along the beach front avenue.

    There is also a supermarket and a big shopping mall near by ( 5 minutes walking to the supermarket and 10 to the shopping mall).
    We are 20 minutes walking distance from the city centre. But if you feel lazy you can catch a bus from the bus stop located 5 minutes walking distance from our hostel.

    La Serena is famous for the beautiful beaches you can find here and around , for the excellent climbing and boldering opportunities , the good surfing, the spanish colonial arquitecture of the city centre, and the huge mountains where you can practice trekking.
    From La Serena you can make short trips to the famous ELQUI VALLEY and see one of the clearest skies on the world, and also the Humboldt natural reserve where you can see lots of wild animals and amazing landscapes (Dolphins, pinguins, sea lions and even wales).
