We are a ecuadorian/canadian couple looking to share the beauties of the small village of Mompiche. Situated on the Pacific coast of Ecuador, we have opportunities in two areas. A hostal situated in front of the sea in which we need help to receive hosts and keeping the place welcoming. We also own a farm with a lot of fruit trees (papayas, guanabana, plantain, bananas, guava, passion fruit, coffee and cacao). A beautiful plantation of tropical flower is also part of the finca. We need help to plant, clean, harvest, process, distribute and sale the farm products. We have dogs, horses and pigs
Help with Eco Projects
Volunteers will find a great experience of farming and tourism at a small scale, in a beautiful, pacific coast village. Mompiche has an strange attraction which is certainly due to the beautiful vegetation that surround it, the beaches that are around, the access of fresh daily fish and seafood, the vibes of the locals and the possibilities of surfing, trekking in the jungle and horseback riding. Also you will participate at the complete process of coffee and chocolate.
Help is needed to receive and giving information to hosts at the hostal. On the farm we are looking of people ready to give an hand on planting, harvesting and participate of any improvement projects such as composting and cleaning plants and flowers.
We offer room with single or double bed, clean sheet, shared bathroom, access to the supplied kitchen and sometimes family meals. We also provides the products of the harvests to all volunteer and shared meals.
