Loja: 160k inhabitants. Loja is the city of music and culture and one of the friendliest cities I know. 30 mins away is Vilcabamba and Malacatos. Vilcabamba is a haven for retirees and foreigners in general. It is called the Village of Long Life, some of its inhabitants are over 100 years old and its known for its healing springs. There are lots of museums etc, bars, restaurants. Its not a noisy city though. Not sure if this website is any good but you could check it out http://www.lonelyplanet.com/ecuador/the-southern-highlands/loja/things-to-d o
Climate: Around 25-30 degrees C. However, being in the mountains it seems hotter. It can be cool in the mornings/evenings so a jacket, a couple of sweaters are advisable.
Salary is $5 an hour and is paid every 2 weeks. You can cash at any bank here. Most teachers are on around 5 hours+ a day.
Visa: We suggest you come on a 6 month consulate visa 12-IX and if you decide to stay a further 6 months we will fund that for you. We will obtain and pay for a volunteer visa for you.
How to get here: You can enter perfectly well on a one way ticket into Ecuador, should you wish. The Ecuadorians are pretty lax and never really ask questions.
How to get to Ecuador and Loja: From Quito or Guayaquil its currently a bus ride since they are renovating the local airport.
Accommodation:With respect to accommodation here in Loja we have a designated building with suites available with own bathroom and kitchen at $125 and includes your utilities. This is within walking distance of the school.
