    Well, I’m sold! I’d love more information about teaching in Ecuador. What’s the best way to chat and learn more? Hope you’re well, Reb

    Hi Justin. I am living in Ecuador now but would like more info on Chilcapamba, living and teaching. Thanks. Jason

      Hi Jason,
      My suggestion would be to contact the Yanapuma foundation and ask them about opportunities. Here’s a link to their contact form: http://www.yanapuma.org/en/contactus.php
      Another option would be to simply “show up” and ask for directions to Alfonso and Francisca’s guest house. If you’re willing to make a long-ish term commitment (~6 months to 1 year) to teach English I think they would find a way to provide a simple living arrangement in exchange. Hope you find something that works well for everyone! Say hello to Alfonso and his family for me!
      Best wishes,

      If you decide on the “show up” option go to Otavalo and then grab a bus to Quiroga. Chilcapamba is about a 20 min walk from Quiroga’s central square/park. If you see a white pickup truck parked near the square they will probably drive you to Alfonso’s place for a small fee.

    Justin, we’ve been to Ecuador several times now. It’s on our short list of retirement countries. Probably heading back for a look at the northern part of the country. I enjoyed you article and hadn’t considered teaching English there. My degree, however, is computer science. Do they have any degree requirements?

    • Justin 7 years ago

      No requirements. Just a willingness to invest some time in the community.
