    Algo más...

    Helpers can visit all the beautiful attraction of Santa Cruz Islands during their time off such as Tortuga Bay, the Darwin Station, las Grietas etc.

    Always consider the details,
    Galapagos is a bit expensive, unlike the mainland, but there is a market where you can do your shopping and it's cheaper.
    Our project is 4km away from the city, you can walk, that's a 25-minute walk or you can go up by bus, it costs 0.50 cents, the last bus ends its journey at 9 at night, then you walk 10 minutes to the house.

    The place where we live is very quiet and has many trees.

    Galapagos is 100% salt water, that's why We must buy water in a tank, this costs 2.00 dollars, it is 20 liters, each tank.
    It is important that you comply with the visiting rules, respect the sites to avoid losing or having an accident.

    All the volunteers when they arrive at the house are part of the family, for this reason we will always be concerned about each one, each volunteer must make their own food, organize the space to always have order, we live very close to home, we are always exchanging dialogue.
    Galapagos is a different world, where we have a lot of peace and always live in harmony.
