We have a guesthouse directly on the beach in Santa Marianita. We are located 20 minutes south of Manta. Santa Marianita beach is long, sandy and safe to walk day or night. This is not a party beach and is very quiet on weekdays. Weekends and holidays can be noisy. It is well known for kite surfing.
Our volunteer shifts are 5 hours, 5 days per week with two days each week off to explore and enjoy this wonderful area in Ecuador. We prefer a commitment of one month or longer. The hours covered are 7:00 AM until 2PM. Duties include cleaning, daily caring for cats and dogs, gardening and art. (wall murals, any type of painting) we will be selling art from our volunteers in the future.
We have a spot for an artist to display their paintings on a 70/30 percentage with extra money to be made on private commissions. Long term available for the right person.
We are seeking mature, low drama, good morals and completely drug-free volunteer who love animals, are ready to work hard with a smile and have fun meeting people from all over the world. At the present time singles are disired because of space. . Our friendly volunteers along with the company of our wonderful rescue cats and dogs make this place what it is - a fun, relaxed getaway with high ratings from travel websites.
We provide our volunteers a bed and access to a full kitchen. There is wifi throughout the property. An excellent large Free breakfast is provided each morning.

I go into Manta almost daily and I'm always glad to give you a lift. Shopping is easy to get to. There is a daily shuttle for $1.00 each way into town. The fish, veggies and fruit are the best and very cheap. There are several kitesurfing schools on the beach.
