  • Help


    We are an English and Spanish speaking family living in the Bolivian Amazon. We have a travel agency in the town of Riberalta and also maintain an Ecolodge Retreat Center in the nearbye jungle. We also oversee and international non-profit registered in Bolivia and the United States. We receive many volunteer to support our projects but we are looking for something a bit different with our work with WorkAway.

    We have two children, a girl (2.5 years old) and a boy (5 years). The boy only speaks Spanish but understands English perfectly. He just doesn't want to speak to his parents in English. We're seeking an English speaking educator/baby-sitter to help look after our children.
