    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    In exchange volunteers will live in a wild and stunning area of Palawan where they can enjoy island hopping, good snorkelling and scuba diving, trekking to waterfalls, sunbathing in breathtaking beaches in desert islands, swimming, see the fluoresecent plankton and fishing among others.
    Workawayers can also learn some building techniques, carpentry, gardening and tagalog while working with locals or spending time with the villagers. Everybody is really friendly in the area so it is really easy to get involved in the community and learn from Filipino culture and traditions.

  • Help


    We are seeking for volunteers who will be able to help building in the construction site (with concrete, bamboo and wood), also carpentry work, gardening and maintenance, make furniture and also prepare, organize and guide our activities. We opened January 2017. We are also open to new ideas such as developing new activities for guests, help us make audiovisual material and spread the word in social networks and booking sites.
    Schedules can be flexible, however we expect enthusiast and hard working workawayers to help us turn our project into life.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The accomodation it is within 20 minute boat ride or 40 minutes by road from Port Barton.
    The area itself is located next to a little village but has barely shops. During your stay you can go to Port Barton every few days.
    All necessary daily goods can be purchased in Port Barton. It also has some bars with live music where you will be able to have drinks with a mix of tourists and locals. In Port Barton you can enjoy the calm of those towns with few hours of electricity a day, where kids and adults hang out in the streets, play basketball, volleyball, watch the sunset by the beach and enjoy the island life. Roads have no pavement and everything is within walking distance.
    El Nido is about 4 hours van ride. Puerto Princesa is 4-5 hours van ride. You can fly to El Nido or Puerto Princesa from Manila. Few vans to both destinations run everyday.
    High or dry season starts from December to June.
    Don't hesitate to contact us for any doubts you may have. We will be pleased to answer.
