Lagarto na Banana Hostel

Party, Yoga and Beach! The best description of this backpackers hostel! Located just 15 minutes from Pipa’s lively centre and the beautiful Praia do Amor is Lagarto na Banana Hostel, where strangers become friends for life. The Hostel is the ideal place to connect with nature and yourself, and its a great opportunity to meet people from all over the world. Human interaction is a BIG part of the hostel. Be yourself, express yourself, open your mind and have a deep an authentic experience during your stay here.

We want to create a small family of volunteers from all over the world. The voulenteers will get free accommodation in a dorm room, free basic breakfast and much more: We have free yoga lessons every day, and daily activities such as dancing or acting classes, meditation, games nights, language exchange, live music shows, caipirinha workshops and more! Any talent you want to share will be really welcomed and you will have the chance to teach or share your skills and passions with lots of people from all over the world! You will also have the chance of enjoying (and maybe help cooking) a delicious vegetarian dinner every night at home!

O Lagarto é muito mais que uma experiência de voluntariado, é um mundo inteiro no mesmo lugar. Cheguei sem saber quanto tempo ficaria e já passam mais de 100 dias, o que acontece bastante com os hóspedes também: estender. Você conhece gente do mundo inteiro que convive num espaço aberto grande, com a visita de muitos animais e em meio à mata. Há classes diversas de dança, música, esportes, yoga.. cada um ensina o que sabe! O trabalho é tranquilo devido a energia das pessoas que estão e que chegam, e a cidade é maravilhosa, muitos golfinhos e paisagens maravilhosas. Só amor por esse paraíso!

Unfortunately I didn't work out as they had too many volunteers at that moment but I stayed as a guest and had an amazing time with the lagarto na banana family.
