    Hi, we are a family of four: Patricia, Jose, Andrea, y Samantha. We would love to have volunteers to help in our hostal in Chugchilan. Chugchilan is a small village with many mountains, near the Quilotoa Volcano (we are a common stop along the popular Quilotoa loop)! We have many attractions including the cloud forest with medicinal plants, a cheese factory, hiking, transport, and horse riding. In our village we have two seasons: winter and summer. We hope you will want to become part of our family for the time you wish--we are very friendly!

  • Help


    We need help in our hostel with languages since many of our guests do not speak Spanish (English and French are very useful) ! In general we are hoping to host entrepeneurial volunteers to help us bring our ideas to fruition!
    You will mostly work at the reception, receiving the hosts, answering their questions and managing reservations and social networks. From time to time, you might also give a hand to our employees in charge cleaning rooms.
    If you want to help the community, depending on what you like to do, we can help to organize this too.
