My time at Casa da Cabaza was truly an amazing experience and opportunity. I am beyond grateful to Tariq & Siets for such a warm welcome and treating me as one of their own. I truly enjoyed the peacefulness and calm environment to unwind from everyday life.
The work was very enjoyable, always well explained to me and they were also really flexible with working hours.
The accomodation was cozy and comfortable allowing me to have time on my own and to work on my personal projects. Most of all, I am so thankful for all the things I learned during the time I spent in this beautiful place.

This experience was incredible. Tariq and Siets were incredibly kind and welcoming. Casa de Cabazas was such a beautiful place to unwind and reconnect with nature. I absolutely loved working with the animals which I fell in love with. I learned so many things there that I know I will carry with me for a very long time. The work load was very simple and rewarding and I had time to catch up on my reading, reflecting and decompressing. The room was very spacious and comfortable, and I felt like they were always very attentive. I would have stayed longer if I could. Thank you so much!!
