    Description

    HELLO TRAVELERS from all over the world!

    My name is Andres David, and I run an Artistic-Eco lodge B&B hotel in the heart of the Galapagos, San Cristobal Island. The whole place has a particular Antonio Gaudi's style resemblance, but with tropical themes. Tourists come from all around the world to see the structure and the sculptures we have done, since it is very attractive !

    My Lodge is in need of volunteers to help me to keep the place clean, tidy, and in well condition. Also we need help in the Reception area to welcome new guests. We need polyglots and people who can speak many languages, English, Spanish, German, Korean, etc. People with Marketing and Tourist Oriented Business backgrounds are welcome to apply with us, since we also want someone who can update our webpage.


    Cheers!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Here the volunteers will learn how to live in an Ecological Environment, how to treat guests and tourists as their own, and how to build an Eco-friendly consciousness of the Galapagos. Here we ask volunteers for seriousness and to reflect upon the world we are living in... You may also see our beautiful art work around the town, mosaics and sculptures overall, and at the Airport.

    Help

    Volunteers are very welcome to stay here and help us.

    Normally we ask for 2 hours of work during the mornings; and 3 hours in the afternoons, during the Reception shifts. If we do not have guests, the volunteer may take the day off to enjoy the surroundings and do some trips.

    In addition, the hotel is an Ecological B@B located very close to the main tourist attractions here in San Cristobal Island (Loberia, Airport, Playa Mann, for example). The job is easy, but I do insist on doing some cleaning for the hotel. Since the life in the island is very relaxing, for sure you may have time to go to the beach, surf or diving, even after work...

    I do encourage the volunteers to show their social skills and be friendly with the guests.

    Any questions, feel free to contact us.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The hotel is near by all the tourist sites, close to the beaches and diving centers.
    It is a very artistic place and our family is well known in the island, since we have done a lot of sculptures and tile-works at the Airport and the Pier too.
    Just as a hobby, I enjoy to play chess with some friends, so if you are up to it... WELCOME!
