Sustainable Bolivia offers housing options based on personal preferences and length of stay. Volunteers can choose to stay in a large communal home in the “Capital of the Bolivian Amazon”, Riberalta; or they can choose to stay with a local family.
Sustainable Bolivia provides our community the opportunity to stay in a fully furnished large house in downtown Riberalta. Only a short walk to the Mercado “San Jose”, a beautiful local market, all of our rooms are quiet, spacious and safe. The central location provides easy access to work-sites and Riberalta’s cultural/nightlife activities.
Our communal home features two fully stocked kitchens, spacious patios and backyard, hammocks and al large balcony. Our rooms come fully equipped and furnished with free cleaning services, clean drinking water, wireless internet access and communal TV.
We believe that total immersion is the most effective method to improve one’s Spanish and gain insight into Bolivian realities. With this in mind, Sustainable Bolivia provides homestay accommodations with carefully selected families in Riberalta. Homestay volunteers receive a private and comfortable room, cleaning services, and three home cooked meals a day.
Probably the most valuable aspect of the homestay experience is the chance to integrate oneself into the daily lives and activities of a local family; to exchange stories, improve language skills, make new friends, and experience Bolivian warmth and hospitality.
