    Description

    Hi,
    We are a family of 3, living at the gates of the Amazon Rainforest in northern Peru. Here in this little jungle town of Chazuta, we are willing to open an hostel and promote eco-tourism in this area. It is gonna be a little hostel, as we are converting a house into it; home sweet home! A 6 beds dormitory at the 1st floor, and a few single rooms downstairs, 3 bathrooms, a kitchen and a garden... It is also well located close to the port and touristic attractions, but in a quiet street.
    Here we will receive tourists and backpackers for a night or more, give them informations about what to do and where to go in Chazuta and around, and offer tours and experiences.

    Hola,
    Somos una familia de 3 personas, viviendo en las puertas de la Amazonia en el norte de Peru. Acá en el pueblo selvático de Chazuta queremos abrir un hostal y promocionar eco-turismo. Sera un pequeño hostal, con un dormitorio de 6 camas, 3 habitaciones individuales, 3 salas de baño, una cocina y una huerta... Esta muy bien ubicado, cerca del puerto y de las atracciones turísticas, pero en una calle tranquila.
    Aquí vamos a recibir turistas y mochileros para una noche o mas, a dar informaciones turísticas sobre que hacer y adonde ir en Chazuta y alrededores, y a ofrecer tours y experiencias.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Chazuta is a really interesting place to know. Well called "the friendship town" (people are so welcoming here!), it is located 1 hour away from the city of Tarapoto. It is a jungle town at the edge of the navigable Huallaga river, where from the port you can take a little boat to go visit native communities. If you like nature, there are also a few beautiful trekkings going between fields and forest, climbing the mountains and leading to waterfalls and thermal waters. It is also very rich culturally, with its art gallery, traditional ceramic center, and archaeological museum. And don't forget the gastronomy: Chazuta is a chocolate town with a few chocolate factories to visit and where to learn about the chocolate making process, and cacao fields to visit!

    Chazuta es un lugar muy interesante para conocer. Bien llamado "pueblo de la amistad" (la gente es muy acogedora acá!), esta ubicado a una hora de la ciudad de Tarapoto. Es un pueblo selvático a las orillas del rió Huallaga, y cuenta con un puerto de donde se puede tomar un bote para ir a visitar comunidades nativas. Si te gusta la naturaleza, hay lindas caminatas, que pasando entre chacras y monte y subiendo las montañas, te llevaran a cataratas y aguas termales. Esta también culturalmente muy interesante, con la galería de arte, el centro de cerámica tradicional y el museo arqueológico. Y no te olvidas de la gastronomía: Chazuta es el pueblo de chocolate, con sus fabricas que puedes visitar y en donde puedes aprender todo del proceso de transformación del cacao, así que sus cacatoales para visitar!

    The volunteer will be staying and sleeping at the hostel, in one of the single rooms( if available) or in the shared bedroom, will have access to the kitchen and bathroom. We provide the general goods as a complete basic diet food, however we like people to buy them meat or fish, or other expensive foods if they want to!! And we don't provide foods in the day off. There is always mineral water.

    El voluntario quedará y dormirá en el mismo hostal, en una de las habitaciones individuales( si disponible) sino nel cuarto compartido, y tendrá acceso a la cocina y sala de baño. Provemos a comprar la comida por una dieta básica completa pero queremos que los voluntarios a su voluntad compren carne, pescado, o otras comidas caras. No proveemos por la comida en los días de descanso. Hay siempre agua mineral.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are expecting the volunteer to help during the morning, so he/she will have plenty of free time to enjoy the region, visit other communities, learn how to do ceramic, eat the best chocolate or just relax in the hammock!
    Chazuta is a small town where everything can be done walking. However, there are mototaxis for the rainy days... To come to Chazuta, there are collective cars, leaving when they are full from the "paradero para Chazuta" in Tarapoto. They cost 10 soles per person.
    Here you will find little shops and restaurants, but there is no bank or atm; you should withdraw money before coming.

    Esperamos del voluntario que ayude por las mañanas, así que el/ella tendra bastante tiempo para disfrutar de la área, visitar otras comunidades, aprender a hacer cerámicas, comer el mejor chocolate o simplemente relajar el la hamaca!
    Chazuta es un pueblo donde todo se puede hace caminando, sin embargo hay mototaxis para los días de lluvia ;)
    Para llegar a Chazuta, hay colectivos que salen de Tarapoto (del paradero para Chazuta) cuando están llenos, y cuestan 10 soles.
    Acá hay tiendas y restaurantes, pero no hay bancos o cajeros; tendras que sacar dinero antes de venir.
