Alix, and her partner Mike, were extremely proactive and flexible to any task that was required. They were also very interested in learning, not only Permaculture and Natural Building, but also the history and ways of living of the town (Pardo). In no time, we ended up feeling as close friends from a long time. I wish they can return some time in the future and will definitively recommend them to any host that can have them. All the best Alix and Mike! Marcelo and the whole Yamay family

What an awesome few days in Yamay, and an amazing way to kick off our Argentinian adventure! We learned a lot about traditional mud building practices, spent some great quality time with the staff and other guests, and got to spend time in a beautiful and quiet place, a perfect opportunity to connect with nature and self-reflect! Highly recommended :) Marcelo and his team were incredibly generous, welcoming, and communicative.

I had a great experience with Glen at ISL Colombia. The organization provides extremely unique experiences for its volunteers and staff, and it was eye-opening to be a part of their work!

Alix, the video you made was beautiful and has been very helpful in bringing more sustainable long-term assistance for the community. A year after your visit, I think you would be very proud of how far we've taken Minga House.

I'm a global citizen and travel addict. I have lived in 11 cities across 6 countries, and have traveled to over 30 countries in all. I'm French but also speak English and Spanish. I love WorldPackers because it allows me to get involved with the local community, to give back, and to get to know the place I'm visiting on a deeper level.
