San Bartolo of Uchuculin is a small rural Kichwa community, 25 minutes from the city of Tena, Napo at the edge of Llanganates National Park!!

There are several projects that the families need help with right now, such as building a traditional style house in the jungle and cultivating cocoa, yuca, pineapple and maize crops.
There is no set program, volunteers can bring their own projects related to their professions and areas of interest, and according to the needs of the community. There is also the opportunity to teach English in a local rural school.

It is the hope of the community that volunteers participate in community activities and daily life. This is more of a cultural exchange and a real chance to experience Kichwa Community life from learning to speak Kichwa, cook typical food, build a knowledge about medicinal plants and to make typical jewellery from natural fibres and seeds.

During the week is when the volunteers will work. During the weekend they have an opp... more inside

Our charming hostel is located in a town called Ilumán, 9km from Otavalo, surrounded by the Imbabura and Cotacachi mountains.

We have been working for more than 1 year and we are in the process of improving the establishment and the services we offer, we have had volunteers, travelers who have passed through here and have offered to help.

ENGLISH

Location

In 2008, we had a vision of transforming a run-down farmhouse and 15-hectares (38-acres) of over-exploited farmland into a world apart from mainstream culture, where people could grow, heal, live sustainably and regenerate the land while living in community.

Rhiannon sits on the edge of a plateau with 360-degree views; clouds roll over snow-capped volcanoes and the sunsets still take our breath away! The sun can be hot, the wind can be fierce and the nights can be chilly – but with strong motivation, a wood-burning stove and good company, it’s a great way to embrace the elements!

Activities

The activities we offer and engage with are based on our 5 core values:

* Live & Work in Community *

We aim to create an inclusive environment where like-minded people from around the world can build lasting relationships. Families with children and people from minority groups (often LGBT) are ... more inside
