  • Description


    We are a couple (Amber from England and Eduardo from Chile) who have opened the only 100% vegan cafe here in Puerto Varas. We are looking for workawayers with the same ethics as us, who are motivated to help save the planet. Our aim is to provide delicious vegan fast-food and at the same time provide information on how to live an ethical life through our everyday behaviour (for example: use less plastic, recycle & reuse wherever possible, eat less meat and other animal products which put a strain on the Earth's resources). If you feel you share similar ethics and want to help spread the peace - please get in contact!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Culture exchange: We are from England and Chile, so we can help with language practice, and we can give advice on the best places to visit in your free time. We've also both been travelling about the world and have lots of workaway experience - so we really appreciate the help that you will be providing.

  • Help


    We are looking for creative individuals to help us with art work in the cafe, to decorate the walls, menu board, bring life to our education wall and keep the cafe running smoothly etc. Knowledge of Spanish is needed, to communicate with customers.

    When it's quiet we're in need of volunteers with art skills to help us with the education wall, regarding promoting veganism, to display in an eye-catching way the effect that eating animal products is having on the planet and is leading to the irreversible collapse of the ecosystems in place. It's a serious topic that we need to get across, but its also hard to display it without seeming aggressive. So we're looking for creative individuals to help us master this project. It is also important that the volunteer is vegan, or very much on their way to being vegan, or the work would be hypocritical.

  • Accommodation


    We live in a container house on a plot of land so space is limited inside, therefore we are offering accommodation in a tent (with an airbed and duvet) during summer months, and in a hostel during colder months. We only have funds to support one work-awayer, so couples/pairs need not apply, sorry guys!

    Your working hours will be max 5 hours (Wed-Sun), with Mondays and Tuesdays free to explore. The cafe is located close to the southern entrance of Puerto Varas and we live more in the countryside, so commute in. We also have a spare mountain bike we can lend to you to give the freedom to explore the surrounding areas in your free time, of which you can store at the cafe whilst working.

    What else ...

    There are lots of beautiful places to visit, and we are moments away from Patagonia! Skiing / snowboarding is available in the winter months- about an hours drive away. Hiking, kayaking and other outdoor activities are very popular during the rest of the year too.
