  • Description


    We are a new and small surf hostal with a cafe looking for volunteers to help with general cleaning, garden, maintenance and guests. (at least one month). Hostal is directly on the beach and surf spot, we have kayaks and surfboards for rent. We love water activities, spearfishing, kayaking, etc, but surfing is our main activity. We are a family of 3 from Utah. We have a friendly dog named Flacco, two cats (Johnny and Cash) and a 17 year old son. We provide lodging and rental services to travelers around the world. We have a small cafe and we serve dinner and breakfast. We have been serving vegetarian meals during dinner and we average about 15 persons per night.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are located in a small Ecuadorian community, where surfing, kayaking, snorkeling, spearfishing, hiking, biking, etc. are things your could do. There is also different islands, horse back rides, trekking and other water sports. Tours to Isla de la Plata and Machalilla on whale season and beach walk at Los Friles are very popular attractions as well. Transportation is frequent and economic (bus or taxi).

  • Help


    Because we always have help from 4 volunteers, the work at the hostal is pretty easy. Everybody is easygoing and get along great, the hostal has a great atmosphere where strangers become friends. We need help with general maintenance, cleaning, errands, laundry, gardening and help with guests. We are always looking for muralistas!
