Hi !!! How are you? I'm Maria, i would like to invite you to my place, so if you are a person who is passionate about traveling, if you like meeting people of other countries , or simply you love animals and you care about preserving the environment, you are welcome to my country. I'm here to help you have a great time in one of the most incredible places in the world.... the Galapagos Islands, but, I also want you to have a great time helping the children in my country to have a good education. This is the way in which I want to return all the affection that I have received from all the tourists I have been able to host. 5% of the profits generated by this business will be destined for the education of low-income Ecuadorian children. Thanks for being part of this project! Besides to be a hostess on airbnb I am an expert doing "daily tours" in these beautiful islands. It will be a pleasure for me to help you have the best holidays in this paradise!! I welcome you to come to my place with a reinforced cleaning protocol available in all rooms. In the rooms you have a table with a chair to telework in peace, it is the best place to concentrate better and be more productive.
