    Ecuador coast is very rich in natural resources. Cheap fruit.

    - In this hotel we give a lot of importance in the quality of the food. Cause we are a beachront hotel we offer seafood, so the workaway person will learn a lot of seafood cooking and gastronomy.
    - We are very near an natural heritage place name El Morro where there live a lot of birds, dolphins and you can find some kinds of oysters and crab, so is another type of learning of our beach and mangrove culture.

    1)Garden we have trees in our hostal so we need help in gardening.
    2)marketing: actually our principal way of promoting and selling is e-marketing so if the traveller have knowledge they can provide to us and help in that way, its very important.
    3) Almost all the webs or informatic programs are in language english, sometimes in the hotel the son owner (Alfredo) is not there to help the fathers so, in that cases the traveller can help with in this programs to the fathers owners.
