Handyman Cleaning Kitchen Hand BartendingView experience
I do not recommend working for Cindy. All three volunteers eventually ended up leaving earlier than expected. There a clear communication problem at work. On top of which, even though we lived behind their house, Cindy and her mother who we would see everyday, would not speak to us directly but through the restaurant manager, Pablo. Cindy clearly told us she did not have time to manage the volunteers and when I tried to talk to Pablo, he was suddenly not in charge of the volunteers. Eventually, Cindy's mom told an employee that we could just leave if not happy. So I did.
It was a pleasure working with these guys in the Galapagos. Cindy, Sebastian, Pablo and Israel truly made me feel welcome. The island itself is the definition of paradise. The work itself was easy and super chill. They also know how to mix work with some fun as we occasionally went out to the local bars and discotec after work which was always a good time. I definitely wouldve loved stayed longer!!
Words cannot describe how absolutely wonderful my experience at Nativo and the galapogos has been. The family was kind and welcoming and held nothing back when it came to treating myself and other volunteers to a life changing trip.
I stayed 1 month and could have easily stayed another. I'm so grateful for everything Cindy and her family has given me.
The tours, animals, people, and food was absolutely amazing. I seriously can't recommend it highly enough.
Cindy and Seba were great and really welcoming people. The house they offer for living is quite simple and comfortable. Me and my friend were supposed to stay a month, but we stayed only one week because unfortunately Seba had to go on a trip and his father would be in charge and he wouldn't even say a simple "good morning" to us. We felt this weird vibe and lack of communication really unwelcoming and as if we were unwanted there, plus the way he behaved under stress wasn't nice at all. So we decided to leave. The work itself was ok: the restaurant is small and we basicly did cleaning duties.
