  • Description


    Welcome workawayers! This is your opportunity to give back to one of the most ecologically sensitive places in the world - the Galapagos Islands. One of the biggest issues facing the conservation of the Galapagos Islands is the lack of investment in the human population living there. We would prefer workawayers who are able to stay for longer periods and who have at minimum a basic-intermediate level of Spanish. By working with this project you will be helping to improve the health and well-being of locals through our fitness programs. You will live in a shared apartment right in the center of Puerto Villamil, Isabela Island and will have the chance to live like a local member of the community!
