  • Description


    We have a family business, pet friendly and laid back eco lodge in the middle of the rainforest, it is run by young and free people. We are nature lovers, take very seriously our job and we are always looking to be better on what we do and what we want our guests to feel when coming to our place.
    We are a small lodge, so everyone who works here has the opportunity to know each others work closely, and colaborate with one another.
    We look forward to be a zero waste lodge on the future, provide and transmit to our guests important information about enviroment conservancy, healthy nature facts, and eco tourism efforts to help you relate with nature in the deepest and purest way possible during their stay.

    We are an eco lodge on the rainforest located in Mindo, Ecuador. We are in the middle of 6 hectars of breath taking nature, surrounded by waterfalls, rivers and natural hiking trails. Mindo is also known worldwide as a hotspot for birdwatchers for its massive biodiversity. We look forward to receive volunteers with good social skills that can transmit the passion of nature towards our guests and make them feel like home in every way they can. The person must be bilingual, SPANISH AND ENGLISH are recquired, leader minded so they can get the best out of each member of the working team. The candidate should be a person who has worked before in organic farming, gardening, and that is willing to learn about zero waste lifestyle. Minimum volunteering must be of one month stay at the lodge, we provide accomodation, and 3 meals. We are 7 km away from Mindo town and we dont have a strong internet signal, but we are sure you will find a better connection with nature.
    Looking forward to make you part of our tree hugging team.

    What else ...

    The volunteer will play a very important role in our lodge, he or she will be hosting international guests, and coordinating activities for them. On days where the occupancy is low, the volunteers will help with the gardening, the cooking and the preparations for the weekend. Mindo in the other hand is the perfect place for birdwatching, long river walks, dipping into waterfalls, or just to enjoy and stare at nature. Mindo is 2 hours drive from Quito, and 3 hours away from esmeraldas, where you can have a perfect escape to the beach in your free days.
