The GLAMPING Experience

captura-de-pantalla-2017-02-17-a-las-22-35-36We work with several communities across the coast of Ecuador, due that we have TWO Stations to make possible a better work and a deeper interaction with the communities.

We have our Acclimate Station, located in the surroundings of a touristic area. This station has access and equipped to supply all needs and is proposing is to make you comfortable and prepare for work will the nearby communities.

On the other hand, the  Adventure Scientific station are located more deep into the mountains. This station is under construction on a community located on the deep of “Chongon Colonche Mountain”… The Goal is to finish the school construction here. We organise special excursion to teach there 1 or 2 times per month.

All volunteers, interns  & staff sleep and work on the Acclimate Station –  Dos Mangas. From there we take the Car, Bicycle or horse to reach nearby communities to teach and contribute!

How looks like to stay on the camping house?

Camping House, is a GLAMPING facility

As is name said, is a camping experience with the services of a house. It means you will have access to beds, pillows, hot water, a Kitchen, bathroom, electricity, landscape, Wifi, etc.. but it does not change that it was designed to make you feel an outdoor experience.

Mosquito net, comfort sleeping, electricity & Wifi in an awesome Glamping space

You will hear the birds  & animals of the natural reserve next to the station, wake up wit the sunrise,  feel the breeze and maybe a bit of rain on the balcony. Is not like an hotel, is a  new experience you will enjoy a lot.

The “Camping Room” was created for long-term stays, is also a glamping facility but more private.

To our project visit people for all over the world from the most diverse lifestyles, careers and backgrounds.  To make possible to everyone get the most of the experience and enjoy the most of this outdoor experience we create the acclimatation station. To prepare for the expedition to the more low access communities, creating a soft transition between the life on the cities and a more simple way of living.
