  • Description


    We are Mónica (27 years), Holger (27 years), Emily (5 years), Wilo (49 years), Alba (44 years), We are living on a beautiful small farm in a village called Runtún, very close (15 minutes bus) to Baños. A beautiful place in the middle of nature, but very close to all the activities that Baños is offering! From our house you can even see the volcano Tungurahua. Our family is working in agriculture and we have some cows. It’s a perfect place to practice your Spanish as most of us only speak Spanish! However, Monica is a Spanish teacher that is fluent in English and thus always able to help you out on the farm.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    You will get to know much better how an ecuadorian family lives and how we grow our food. You will try typical dishes and of course, you will practice and learn our language in a natural environment.
    You will have the best experience ever!!

  • Aide


    You could help us out in the greenhouses where we grow Babaco fruit, and Tomatoes, or help in the small organic garden that we use to grow our own vegetables. (You have to bring gloves for work. And rain boots optional.)
    We would love to cook together to share recipes and typical dishes from your country!

    If you are an English teacher or have experience teaching, we can arrange some English classes for my daughter Emily. ( She is a fast learner and has a good pronunciation of English).

    Since my parents are building a botanical garden, we are looking for a professional gardener or someone who can design a garden ( if you are the right person for it and can stay longer, we can arrange it with any Fee payment).

    Contact us for more information!

  • Langues parlées

    English: Courant
    Spanish: Courant

  • Hébergement


    We offer a room for our volunteers which will be shared when there are more volunteers with a private bathroom, hot water. There will be 3 meals a day which will be eaten together with the family. We would love to cook together and get to know your culture a bit better. Nevertheless, since we are a farmer family with relatively a low income we ask for a small contribution for food which is $5 dollars a day per person. Thanks for your understanding!
