Hello fellow travelers!!
I am looking into traveling to Ecuador and I wanted to fill a part of my trip with a volunteer abroad opportunity.

I found this one Trip180 here near Puyo Ecuador.

Has anyone ever heard of this organization or any cool things to do near Puyo? I'd love to keep this organization as my base and then travel around the country. Let me know if you guys know anything or if you have any other suggestions.

Ill be there between October 11th-20th. If you are in the area, let me know! -Rodrigo

Please note that this is not a travel site; it's about backpacking in terms of wilderness trekking. Of course if someone here has recent experience, I'm sure they'll respond. A better source of information would be a budget travel site such as Lonely Planet, Rough Guide, etc.

The site you have posted only claims to connect you to a non-profit organization somewhere that is seeking volunteers. The site states that you must communicate directly with the organization in question to discover what they do, what they would like you to do for them, what accommodations they provide, if any, and so on. So, you haven't even given us the name of the actual organization you'd be volunteering with. That makes it hard to tell you about it, even if by some chance we'd heard of it or knew anything about it.
