  • Description


    We are located not far from the city of A Coruña and from Santiago de Compostela, the end of the Camino de Santiago. The house is 5 minutes walking from the beach.
    In the project, we offer our clients accommodation, sports, language learning, (English and Spanish)
    We organize language exchange events.
    The sport activities include kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, hiking and mountain bike.
    The project started in 2014 and It's still evolving.
    You can be very helpful for us if you are good at any of the following things:
    Video editing, web-designing, sports like football or basketball, marketing, experience in travel industry.
    Are you a sociable person? That's very good for the clients who want to learn your native language, and know more about your culture.
    The main season is during summer, July and August and It's when we need more helpers. Still, work with marketing, web-designing, video-editing... can be done anytime, so drop us a line anyway.
    As a cultural exchange place, we welcome helpers with a diversity of nationalities and talents.
    If you have any questions, feel free to contact us!

    Note for Spaniards (2022): We are preparing the return, with a somewhat different approach, after two years of forced break. In previous years we only had volunteers who were native speakers of English for the English language immersion activity. There were only three Spanish volunteers in the five summers of activity. Now we also want to exchange remote help for vacations, without them having to coincide in time. We are thinking of people with experience in grassroots sports, soccer, basketball and other group sports, with knowledge of web design, SEO or experience in the travel sector.

    Nota para españoles (2022):
    Estamos preparando la vuelta, con un enfoque algo distinto, después de dos años de pausa obligada.
    En los años anteriores sólo teníamos voluntarios que fuesen nativos en inglés para la actividad de inmersión lingüistica en inglés. Fueron sólo tres los voluntarios españoles en los cinco veranos de actividad. Ahora queremos también intercambiar ayuda remota por vacaciones, sin que tengan que coincidir en el tiempo.
    Estamos pensando en personas con experiencia en el deporte de base, fútbol, baloncesto y otros deportes de grupo, con conocimentos de diseño web, SEO o experincia en el sector viajes.
