2. Life in the program
Volunteers are housed in cabañas for three persons that are in the heart of the center so they can watch the animals from their hammocks on the deck, and in the mornings wake up to the beautiful sound of macaws, parrots, monkeys and other animals of the center. The cabañas are basic but have all the necessary commodities of electricity, warm and cold running water. Clean sheets and blankets are provided in the volunteer cabañas. However, it may be useful to bring a light sleeping bag with you should you wish to camp in the forest for a night or two.
There is a communal kitchen and dining area for the use of volunteers and staff. The kitchen area is large and equipped with all necessary appliances and utensils. In the dining area, volunteers and staff eat together at breakfast, lunch and dinner. It is also an area where meetings are held, presentations are given, games are played, volunteers can watch movies, and just a good place to hang out and share experiences and travelling tales with fellow volunteers.
