    "Please read our profile and calendar before getting in touch with us"

    Purely Panamanian, we are company dedicated to ecotourism and sustainability. We operate 3 unique eco-lodges focused on birding and nature observation. We also run a small B&B and a zip-line adventure in Panama. Ever expanding, we are always indulging in new projects, including an organic farm to provide locally-grown organic fruits and vegetables to our lodges, and an environmental education program in the near future.

    We offer volunteering positions at our lodge in El Valle de Anton, Panama

    Help us to improve our salad menu.

    3) ORGANIC FARMING
    We are building an organic farm and are looking for help. We already grow bananas and would like to start some vegetables in order to serve food in our lodges that comes straight from our farm. Volunteers will be hosted in a house on the farm.

    - Preference is given to those who hold a university degree, especially one related to our activities (ecology, tourism, sustainability).

    Do not forget to tell us if you have a talent and think you could bring something interesting to the place.

    IMPORTANT :

    Be aware that we will do a one week trial period to make sure there is the right fit on both sides.
