    Description

    Hi! :) We are a small eco friendly Lodge with capacity of 22 guests, located in the Amazon of Ecuador. We have an area of 15 acres with private beaches on the Misahuallí River, ornamental gardens of local plants, fruit trees and a reforestation project of 9 acres around the Lodge.

    We are not only nature lovers but also adventure lovers!

    Currently we have four local paid staff: one General Manager who is in charge of managing bookings, marketing and accounting, one Chef who manages our restaurant, one Kitchen Assistant who supports our Chef and one Host who serves as a waiter and bartender.

    We are looking for TWO workawayers:
    ONE for our "WORK AND PADDLE" position, and ONE for our "WORK AND TRAVEL AS A YOGA GUIDE" position! :)

    Our Ecolodge is located in a very special place, the Amazon rainforest of Ecuador where biodiversity is known for its wonders. Even if we are located in the jungle, the Lodge is just 3 hours away from Quito, Ecuador’s capital. In less than 15 minutes you will find ancient caves and trails, waterfalls, rivers, and pristine fresh water natural swimming pools.

    The Amazon rainforest is the main home of the Kichwas, the most populous ethnic group in the Amazon region. You will be able to learn and interact with this special culture where plants are used as medicine, and spiritual healing. If you as a workawayer would like to have more interaction with the local Kichwa community (5 minutes from the Lodge), we can introduce you, so that you can interact and get to know the community. During your free time you may: share English language classes with locals, or other related activities that you have interest in.

    Also, if you do not have experience in whitewater sports, we will teach you how to properly and safely whitewater kayak, so that you can get the best experience during your time with us! (ONLY FOR "WORK AND PADDLE" position).

    Depending on the season, you will have the opportunity to join our Rafting & Jungle Tours for free :)
