Not far from the placement you will find a multitude of activities such as canyoning, rafting, horseback riding, hiking or snorkelling! You can also visit Nanegalito, a nearby town, or take a 3-hour drive to the coast to the beach Atacmes. Often volunteers also go to Quito on weekends.

You will stay with a local host family. The houses are pretty basic, because families do not have many resources. In exceptional cases, you will have to share a room with a family member. You will have three meals a day.
