    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    A great place `to try out` many things and a different lifestyle. Being in the mountains and a lot outside will make you stronger and improves your goodwill, physical and mental condition. You can learn about herbs, local plants and cultivations. You can visit neighbours and share yoga and meditation.

    Un lugar apto para `ensayar` otras actividades y un estilo de vida diferente. Permaneciendo en las montañas y afuera te hará mas fuerte y mejora tu voluntad y tu condición físico y mental.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    FOOD is not included (that's why it's only 3 hrs p day) except what's available at the moment, you should buy all you need (try to eat whole integral food, veggies & fruit!). There are very nice walks to do in the área, f.e. in the cloud forest with the Giant fern trees. Some volunteers prefer to come down to village on their free days, other prefer to walk, rest or read. TRANSPORT: first time obviously I take you there, mostly by pickpup. To go down to village you can hitchhike or walk down, it`s a pleasant 2 hour walk with beautiful views. To come back we can sometimes arrange a ride with a neighbour, other option is a (moto)taxi. Sometimes we can combine transport (I don`t go always by car).

    ALIMENTACION: no la incluyo (por eso son sólo 3 hrs p dia) excepto lo que hay disponible ese momento), antes debes conseguir tus alimentos en el excelente mercado de Samaipata. Hay varias caminatas muy bonitas en la zona que puedes hacer, por ej. en el bosque nublado con los Helechos gigantes. Hay voluntarios que prefieren bajar al pueblo en sus días libres, otros se quedan arriba para descansar, leer, caminar. TRANSPORTE: obviamente te llevare la primera vez. Para volver al pueblo puedes volver con vecinos o caminar; es una hermosa caminata de 2+ horas (bajando). Para regresar te puedo arreglar a veces una ida con un vecino, otra opción es (moto)taxi. A veces podremos combinar transporte (no siempre voy en movilidad).
