You are our guest, and the Serrania de las Quinchas community team are here to help and support you at any point you need during your stay.

The experience

Ecotourism in a place like Serrania de las Quinchas is labour intensive.  Our project is in its early stages and we need help in a number of areas like opening up new trails through the forest, reforestation projects and improving the accommodation provided so we can offer an even better service for our visitors.  Sometimes volunteers will focus on a specific project, but often they carry out a variety of tasks depending on where the need is.

We request a minimum stay of 2 weeks for our volunteers.  If you are only able to visit us for a few days but would like to volunteer, we would be very happy to organise a shorter volunteering program, but the daily cost will usually cost more.  

We ask that our volunteers are people who are both willing to give and receive.
