  • Description


    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
