  • Description


    We are a German family running a lodge/restaurant in the mountains next to the Chamana waterfall in Baños. The lodge is a very unusual place which took around 10 years to build. Our main activities are with the Lodging and Restaurant, but given that we are in the middle of nature we also do many activities out on the property like gardening and construction.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are a German family so you would be exposed to a mix of German and Ecuadorian culture. If you like cooking we can learn some nice stuff, if you are interested in Architecture and construction there is also plenty to learn, if you like being outside you could learn about the different natural species on the property and share your new knowledge with tourists.

  • Help


    The main volunteering activities would be helping out with the tourists, like welcoming them and showing them around as well as doing some general maintenance which could be gardening, painting or also construction. Currently we have some spaces we want to do some artistic paintings on... so if you are good at artistic painting please join. We are very flexible and there is always something to do inside or outside. On the side you could also be part of creating a new project in any of the areas of need. We always welcome new ideas.

    For the moment we can only host 2 volunteers who would be living in a beautiful little newly renovated wood house on the property. The house has a little kitchen, a bathroom small living room and a bedroom with two beds on the second floor. Very nice view to the waterfall and mountains from the bedroom. Access to laundry and dryer. The volunteers will get lunch directly at the restaurant. Breakfast and dinner are independent. We some times cook togehter for dinner but usually volunteers use the indepenfdent kitchen in the co workers house.
