El lugar es hermoso, junto ha la laguna! se respeta el desayuno como se acuerda! te prestan kayaks y paddleboards.
Solo faltaría un área adecuada para los voluntarios ya que solo es una pequeña carpa y cuando llueve no se puede dormir ahí.

Casa Lahar is a beautiful space right in front of the laguna. you have access to kaiks and paddle board. they provide food for breakfast and we can cook. I was just on the rainy season so there was no much work to be done, only helping at the reception and small cleanings. as it was raining Legna let me stay in the shared room with guests but in case the room would be fully booked I'd need to move to the tent.

La pasé muy bien en Casa Lahar, el lugar es maravilloso. Hubo días tranquilos y otros de mucho trabajo, al fin de cuentas creo que el intercambio fue justo. Fueron días hermosos que recordaré para siempre

Casa Lahar fue una muy buena experiencia, se respetan los horarios y las tareas a llevar a cabo son faciles, los demas chicos que trabajan en recepcion son muy buena onda. Desafortunadamente, por cuestiones familiares tuve que irme del voluntariado antes de lo que queria. Recomiendo casa lahar para ser voluntario!

Una maravillosa primera experiencia . El equipo de casa Lahar (Legna, Sebastián, Jovana y Teresa) son geniales. Buena onda entre todos. Legna súper relajada, flexible y respetuosa.La ubicación del hospedaje es genial, ver cada amanecer y atardecer es inigualable. Cumplen con lo ofrecido: carpa y colchoneta. Quiero volver pronto a Bacalar, es mágico.
