We are Canadian living in a small Eco-Village at the end of the local community Munoz village in Puerto Plata Dominican republic. We receive international volunteers for the concept Volunteer Vacation. The volunteers have an immersion in the local community and pass on their skill or knowledge.
Education: languages, arts, sports, music. also if you have a budget, we can do repairs or help mothers in their little business (that requires a little budget).
We have a bus or airport pick up service in Puerto Plata for a fee less than a taxi. We provide a safe and enjoyable environment. All volunteers live on the same private site at the end of the local village.
Volunteers pay for their food and accommodation (Apartment for 100 or 150 us per week). You have an equipped kitchen, free wifi, access to library, open air gym, bar restaurant and swimming in the nautral pool: Munoz river. Walking distance to the volunteer site.
Any Sport equipment, musical instruments and school supplies.
Receive the volunteers and visitors. Clean and maintain the apartments, gardens and outdoor facilities. Do the online marketing. Assure a good personal service and integration to local community and culture.
The concept is volunteer vacation. Schedule are flexible and you can do the excursions and discover the island. You have to be a little autonomous!
The only factor that varies is if the children are at school or on vacation. That influences the programmation for those who work with children.
We have been here in Munoz village in Puerto Plata for 21 years and have always been collaborating with the local community. We are very well accepted in the village and so are our volunteers who feel at home right away and very safe! You can discover the real Dominican Republic and the culture. You can participate in all local events and learn Spanish and do all excursions booked with local people at a better rate! Great human experience!
