    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travelers will benefit from exploring the enchanted Galápagos Islands with locals. Live in the small beautiful town of Isabela where everything is walkable and there are endless activities such as snorkeling, bike rides, endless wildlife. Free kayak/snorkel tours when available and other discounted tours.

  • Help


    Help out around the shop with basic cleaning (windows, sweeping, scrubbing snorkel equipment, kayak equipment). Lifting of kayaks and gear. Isabela is a small remote island with very little resources, so we want to know what skills you can offer us. It can be anything, think outside of the box. BICYCLE knowledge is a huge plus, art (working on a mural right now), online marketing, social media, carpentry, gardening, massage, yoga, chef, tour guides..... the list can go on.

  • Accommodation


    Private tent with mattress on rooftop (covered). Ocean breeze and ocean views. Kitchen available for use (Stove top). Outdoor shower. Toilet indoors. We enjoy cooking together or taking turns cooking so if you can cook that helps. Food is not included, we all chip in to eat family style. If hippie living is not for you this is not for you.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Almost everything is walkable or taxis within town are $1-$2 per person. Cooking at home is the cheapest option ($10/day) but can find $1-$4 street food. A typical menu at a restaurant can go for $5-$12. Beers are $3-6. The house where up to two volunteers can stay is an open wooden house where two of our coworkers live downstairs from the rooftop.
