  • Description

    Description

    Our hostel is located in the nort coast of Perú, in Zorritos Beach. It is in front of the sea within a large natural area with an eco-architecture and unique style. Its facilities are built with natural materials of the area and the constructions are artistically conceived to the area that surrounds them. In its design and construction artists and volunteers have participated, who with their work made it an architecturally unique place.

    Our proximity to the equatorial line makes the climate of the area warm and sunny throughout the year with temperatures between 25 to 35 degrees Celsius.
    Volunteers are offered accommodation and three meals a day.
    The Hospedaje has all the services and WIFI.

    In the last six years, the coastline of the eco hostel area has suffered dramatic changes due to climate change, losing around 200 meters of coastline. This has caused great loss and intense damage to the facilities and at this moment we are carrying out restoration, protection and shelter work.

    For this we need volunteers for the construction of new cabins of wood and mud, armed with retaining walls, cleaning of roads inside the lodging, garbage collection, cleaning and maintenance of the lodging in general.

    Four years ago we rescued "Bubba," a blue-footed booby, who has a broken wing so he can not fly anymore, he needs to be feed, accompanied and bathes him, a task in which as a volunteer you can also help.

    En los últimos seis años el litoral del área del eco hostel y alrededores ha sufrido cambios drásticos debido al cambio climático, perdiendo alrededor de 200 metros de costa. Esto ha causado gran perdida y daños intensos en las instalaciones y en este momento nos encontramos realizando trabajos de restauración, protección, y resguardo.

    Para esto necesitamos voluntarios para la construcción de nuevas cabañas de madera y barro, armado de muros de contención, limpieza de caminos dentro del hospedaje, recolección de basura, limpieza y mantenimiento del hospedaje en general.

    Hace 4 años rescatamos a "Bubba" un piquero patiazul, que tiene un ala quebrada por lo cual no puede volar más, quien necesita que lo alimenten, acompañen y lo bañen, tarea en la cual como voluntario tambien puedes ayudar.
