Las Tolas

Rewarding volunteering in a trend-setting community


Brimming with exciting activities for adventurous travelers, a variety of important volunteer and learning opportunities, and a community grassroots reforestation program, Las Tolas is a trend-setting community, deeply rooted in the traditions of its Yumbo ancestors, in the Ecuadorian Cloud Forest of the Andes Mountains.


The Ecuadorian Cloud Forest boasts one of the most biodiverse ecosystems in the world and Las Tolas is no exception. In this culturally, archaeologically and naturally rich community, volunteers learn about traditional Yumbo culture in an environment of incredible harmony and awe-inspiring beauty.


With Toucans perched high in the trees, rivers and waterfalls littering the landscape, and the archaeological remains of the Yumbo people beneath your feet, Las Tolas is a nature lover´s paradise and the epitome of South American travel.
