Extra night of Accommodation

One night extra accommodation between projects or on arrival or departure


Volunteers outside Quito or Cuenca pay directly to the project or community for accommodation and meals. Yanapuma does not charge anything on top. We can in some cases make payment on behalf of the volunteer, but we need to add 12% sales tax, so it is better if the volunteer can pay directly to the project. Costs vary with each project from around $392 to $700 per month. For longer-term volunteers we can sometimes arrange a reduction in the cost for food and lodging.

"I had a truly amazing time volunteering with the kids at Camp Hope project. Everything was well organized, and I felt very supported by the Yanapuma coordinators throughout my time in Ecuador."
