Reviews

Family friendly volunteer project
"In February 2017 we, a family of 5, travelled to Las Tolas in Ecuador to volunteer for Reserva Mundo and Luis. We were welcomed with open arms and warm hearts by Luis, his family and the village. Reserva Mundo is a project founded on one man’s great dream, in a small village. We lived in the home of Luis, like proper locals. Quite a different life from what we were used to, working in and with beautiful nature surrounding us, and friendly people. The children’s enjoyed the stay, and adapted quite nicely. There were some things that were frustrating, the most important of them being the lack of water at certain times during the day. However, an experience that gives perspective."- Ariane Spandow
