I am a german 60 years old - and i am living in the ecuadorian Andes since 2010. We have dogs, two cats.
On the outskirts of the city of Ibarra we operate a campsite which is mainly used by Panamerican travellers (almost very interesting people with a lot of stories!)
Every weekend friday, saturday and sunday we open our Cafe and german beergarden, where we offer breakfast, lunch and cakes "German Style" and german import beer. A lot of locals come to try our food.
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
We recive a lot of people of every part of the world. In the weekend there come a lot of locals. So you can improve your spanish . The employers are ecuadorians and you can learn spanish with them. Here in Ibarra it is easy to get an spanish school. Around Ibarra we have a lo of diferent cultur in the andes, amazon and the cost. All is near by
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
In the main we are looking for someone who likes baking and cooking to help us in the bistro on friday,(preparation-day!) saturdays and sundays.
The rest of the week you can help to administrastion the internacional campground.......or make some local excursions.
It's not necessary to speak spanish, english could be helpful.
In the same house as the café there is a bedroom with a private bathroom. And of course you can use all the rest of the property.
Since the main working time is on the weekend, remains enough time to explore Ecuador. It's a small land with a very good and cheap bus-system.
Ibarra is only two hours away from the capital Quito.
