I dont want to be rude but still I have to be honest with the WorldPackers comunity. This place is wonderfull, and all the animals are amazing (I Love Lola the pig). But this is not a WorldPackers experience. Why? First, it is not 5 hours a day, me and the other 2 volunteers, we were working between 8 and 10 hours a day, I even worked 12 hours one day and your first day off it is not the 6th, because she doesnt count the first day (told me was the trainee day) and second, it is 40 minutes BY CAR from any place in the city or from any other human being. So, dont recomend at all.

We do not work by the hours, we work by task; the time at the end of each task on your schedule is the reasonable time you have to perform each task, each shifts is made of task that should be performed in approximately the time you stated in your application of the amount of hours you were willing to help us, the minimum requirement is 5 hours, but most volunteers chose to help us out more than that, however if you are very slow, take a lot of breaks an do not fallow the instructions it will take you a lot more than the 5 hours, we HIGHLY recommend people that are slow not to visit but if they still visit us knowing they are slow, then they should not complain when they get to work more hours than the standard 5, also some of the volunteers work is excellent and we offer them extra task and pay then cash for this work, so if you see other people working more hours you can not assume the reason for this rather you should ask why are they working extra.
We also inform every one before they arrive that we are far away from everything and people that come here is because they are OK with that, if you come and do not have your own transportation it is your responsibility. We are not a suitable location for a lot of people specially those that have addiction problems an trying to stop, when the withdraw symptoms kick in and you do not have a way to get out and get what ever you are addicted to, it can be a big problem
