We are based in the small village of Jupapina, which is approximately 30-45 minutes by bus from the city centre of La Paz, the de facto capital of Bolivia. It is a beautiful, semi-rural village surrounded by mountains. There is a very strong sense of community – perhaps one of the most enriching aspects of many volunteers’ experiences to date has been participating in this small community and getting a very real flavour of Aymara indigenous culture.
As very few people speak English it is also the perfect place to learn / improve your Spanish. Most of our projects are within walking distance of the volunteer houses where you will be based, or a short minibus ride away.
