  • Description


    Hi everyone!

    I'm Dante, the lucky new administrator of a small paradise in Yurimaguas, at the entrance of the Amazonian jungle!
    This is a hotel which wasn't occupied for almost 6 years. I want to give this beautiful place another life, but as the place is quite big I would definitely appreciate your help!
    2 steps away from the city but already far away from all its troubles.
    The hotel has an unique view on the river (we also have kayak which you can use on your free time, to go discover this Amazon affluent and see the pink dolphins, endemic of the region!)

    There is a lot of space here and we are full of projects! Apart from the hotel itself (rooms, bar, kitchen, swimming pool), I want to create a recreation field (volleyball,football), a vegetable garden, tours on the river...and so much more!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    As we are situated at the entrance of the amazon region, you have the opportunity to discover a bit of this culture, making some kayak along the river, trying the great fruits of the region, visiting the city of Yurimaguas.
    Also a good opportunity to practice spanish.

  • Help


    The volunteering program consists in 4 hours daily, 5 days a week and includes accommodation and breakfast. For the other meals the volunteer has access to the kitchen. Also the city market is quite close and has plenty of good food to offer!
    As I said, the place was closed for 6 years so there is plenty of stuff to do, but no construction.
    Mainly cleaning, painting, gardening, field cleaning,...
    If you know about electricity, plombing, organic gardening , or if you are full of ideas it's a plus!
    Otherwise if you are motivated and with good vibes you are more than welcome here.

  • Accommodation


    The volunteer will have a room in the hotel (we've already prepared the rooms for the volunteers, the other ones have to be worked on), breakfast and access to the kitchen for other meals.
    Also access to facilities such as canoe kayak, swimming pool as soon as it is restored, chilling spots, etc...
    We don't count with wifi right now but also working on it.
