    Description

    Welcome to our charming B&B Equine Ranch facing the impressive Cayambe Volcano and located less than three kilometers from Cayambe City center. We’re situated in a lovely Andean nature nirvana within the remote Paquestancia native dairy farming community with access to more than 50 kilometers of scenic nature trails, our beautiful waterfall, communal house, forest and tourism cabin, approximately 90 minutes drive time north of Quito with easily accessible convenient public transportation. We offer guest accommodations, horseback riding, guided wilderness hikes, soul renewal retreats, meals and special event services.

    My name is Jeannie, I was born in the United States and during almost three decades learning to know this amazing country I’ve developed a deep love for Ecuador and the Ecuadorian people. My youngest son was born in Quito twenty eight years ago and we both live here on the property. Tania works with us Tuesday through Saturday as our full time housekeeper/cook and Franklin cares for the horses and gardens. Additional help is welcome and most appreciated as our activities are increasing and expanding. Thank you for considering an opportunity to join our team, we look forward to working together serving our guests, caring for the horses, the property, and the Paquiestancia community. Warm greetings and best wishes!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You’ll have an opportunity to learn about Ecuadorian culture, gastronomy, native traditions, dairy farming, gardening and equine care, with a chance to explore this lovely country during your free time. If you’re interested in improving or learning Spanish, our workers speak Spanish and being immersed in the language will be very helpful.

  • Help

    Help

    We’re searching for kind, friendly, independent, flexible, creative, adventurous, nature and equine lovers willing to help with any of the following:

    Yoga classes

    Holistic Wellness

    meal planning and preparation

    equine care (loving, feeding and brushing)

    watering and weeding our gardens

    planting and harvesting crops

    guest care services

    social media and marketing

    We are looking for individuals willing and able to demonstrate initiative and preferably with prior experience living or working on a horse ranch. We encourage volunteers interested in proposing and pursuing independent projects to connect with and join our team.

    We ask our volunteers for a minimum five week commitment and we prefer longer stays.
 Maintaining order in your independent and potentially shared living space is important.

    The position(s) could be ideal for one person or possibly two people who may appreciate remaining in Ecuador long term and converting a temporary volunteer position into full time work with earning potential.

    If you appreciate healthy peaceful living, nature and horses, greeting and serving international travelers and volunteering, this may be a great fit for you. If so please send us an email describing yourself, your desires and plans. Please include, if applicable, information regarding medical limitations and essentials, as well as special needs and conditions, we hope to hear from you soon!

    We have a one bedroom with one bathroom volunteer house which can accommodate up to two volunteers in a shared living space. Prior experience living with others in community is recommended.

    In your spare time, you can relax on the property or stroll through the nearby wilderness. There are limitless hiking trails in our area accessible from the property. We may also offer educational opportunities for you to work one on one with us and the horses if interested.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Although we’re located in a remote country setting we're quite near to Cayambe City where you’ll find coffee shops, restaurants, bakeries, grocery stores, pharmacies, churches, travel agencies, banks, a fresh produce market, souvenirs, an ATM, etc… We encourage you to take care if walking alone in Cayambe City at night as you would in any city center.
