  • Description


    We are Liz and Paola, two friends who came to Ollantaytambo on vacation and were captivated by its beauty, so we decided to stay and open a small Guest House which is located on the beautiful Inca side of Ollantaytambo, near the ruins and the main square. We are looking for responsible people to volunteer at our guest house for APRIL and after. This position would be perfect for a couple or two friends traveling together!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our workaways will learn not only about our culture althought since we are a b&b we receive peolpe from all over the world so the interchange is not only with our people and culture; is also a global interchange.
    They will be able to share they experiences with the guest and receive also from then a lot of information and who know maybe a place to stay if you visit their country.

  • Help


    We are looking for friendly and motivated couples to help us with our B&B five days a week, minimum one month. We have a morning and an afternoon sessions, so two people are necessary and who are willing to share an apartment together. Ideal for a couple or for a pair of friends (there are two double beds in the apartment). We prefer mature individuals with a strong level of Spanish.

    In exchange for your help, lodging and a small stipend for food is provided. Your days off will be together. You also have access to our kitchen and you may do laundry once a week.

    The help consists on receiving guests in the reception and assisting them with tourist information, and helping us with the general maintenance and cleaning. The hotel is small, we have just 6 bedrooms for the guests so the tasks will not be difficult.

    We value and appreciate reliable people who enjoy helping guests and make them feel like home. People who are flexible, pro-active, responsible and like working with people.

    The use of drugs is not permitted. Smoking and drinking are not allowed while volunteering.
