  • Description


    We are a family of 4, a couple (38-50) and two guys (15-22). Nature and animal lovers!!! We own a tourist office and hostel located almost in the heart of our beautiful city and we need help in two of our projects – your help will vary based on the option you pick (will have fun with all of them!): 1) cleaning the lands that we sell, 2) help in tourist office and the next-door hostel. You can visit many interesting spots here such as our active volcano, 2 national parks (PN Villarrica and PN Huerquehue), several hot springs, lakes (we live 2 blocks from one of them), rivers and waterfalls.

You need to cook on your own with provided fruits and vegetables in both options.
