Live and work with a host family in one of our Volunteer Community Project Coast Ecuador. Help with day to day tasks that will benefit the local fishers community. The community is located on the south coast of the Manabí Province, 10 minutes and about 12.5 km (8 miles) from the town of Puerto Lopez. The locale is along the road known as the Spondylus Route (spondylus, a spiky red oyster-like sea shells, was highly valued in the pre-Columbian cultures of Ecuador and Peru). Puerto Lopez is located on the Pacific coast, about 90 km (60 miles) north-west of Guayaquil.
Manabí Province has many natural attractions including tropical forests, sunny beaches and sparkling rivers, so there are many places to practice ecotourism, adventure sports, bird watching and community tourism.
Our community volunteer programs Ecuador are focused on the potential to improve the quality of life in the local communities; moreover Eco Volunteer UP invites volunteers to be part of the fisher community and to participate in activities based on community needs.
