We are a Peruvian/ American family run business in the heart of the amazon rainforest and river. Since this year our young family is growing so we as the owners need more time with our children and less on the business. We have a small lodge and other camping outposts that we run excursions and expeditions on. We work with several communities for the sustainable development of the Lower Peruvian Amazon . Our main lodge is comfortable but close to several villages so we have other small camps where we need help with hygiene, cooking and service to international tourists. We also have an office in Iquitos with a room to stay.

We have many things to occupy volunteers with from direct tourism service, social media marketing and teaching English to Amazon natives. We prefer serious individuals that are flexible with their work schedule and comfort level. Our camps are located in titled indigenous persons land where we employ them as guides and ecological guardians of their lands. We Would love to have people training our locals in hygiene , cooking, English , general maintenance and translating for tourists.
the accommodations at our camping outposts are much more rustic than at the jungle lodge itself where we have private bathrooms and rooms with double, singles, matrimonial and triples. The jungle lodge has running water, electricity by solar panel, kitchen, dining room and large house for guests.
