Reviews

Great experience
"A great start to our travels. We stayed for 2 months (Sept-Oct). In the mornings we did help to build a house of a local lady who lost hers two years ago or helped Francisca in the garden. In the afternoon we taught English (Mon-Wed) and played with kids (Thu-Fri) of the local community. On weekends we had time to explore the area (Banos, Tungurahua, Laguna Quilotoa, Riobamba,...). You'll live together with the daughter of Francisca but you might not see her a lot. We were very lucky to spend 2nd Nov in Salasaka as well, the dia de los muertos which is a must if you can make it!"- Michael Holzmeier
