Condortrekkers is a not for profit tourism agency in Sucre, Bolivia. We lead tours throughout the Bolivian Andes surrounding Sucre. All profits support social projects within Sucre and the communities in the areas where we hike.
Volunteers are responsible for promoting the hikes, preparing for the hikes, assisting the Bolivian guides during the hikes and after tour cleanup.
I met Randall, the main Condortrekkers man(!), by coincidence and then I spent nearly 4 months in Sucre (2008) during the starting phases of the organisation. So here's a bit of info you might find useful..........
The organisation - a genuine organisation that has definite and achievable goals. Not interested in taking money from volunteers, just getting people involved in creating a sustainable system to give back to the areas it works within, on a real level.
Randall - lovely guy, has put his heart into the organisation, will always help you out and up for a laugh too!
Sucre - great place to live and cheap, enough to keep you occupied with a few bars and clubs, trekking, sports stuff etc but small enough to feel like home. Pretty white buildings everywhere, good market, couple of veggie restaurants (I'm veggie) and an easy mix of real life and tourism.
Although my time with Condortrekkers was very early on in it's development and I know it has evolved a lot since I left...I have no reservations about recommending it as a great volunteering opportunity. Enjoy! :0)
