Had a great time at Gota. The guys have a few surf schools by the ocean. It is easy to get around you can go surfing every day and you get a bike or / and a skateboard. The team is fun and welcoming. Really enjoyed my stay would definitely recommend the experience :)

The house is so cozy and it has a magic vibe that makes you feel like home as soon as you set your foot in there!
Shift hours and the job itself are easy and quite reasonable. You’re gonna have plenty of time to surf before or after your shifts. The boards are always there and so are the good conditions(most days).
If something is not working for you or you think it can be done in a better way, the boys will be happy to listen. They always make it clear how much they want to improve and how suggestions and constructive criticism are what will get them further.
I miss gota already❤️

➕Boards, wetsuits and lessons, nice design of the hostel.
➖Lack of organization. They often forget about everything. Micromanagement.
➖Most shifts are from 14/16 till 20/22
➖Breakfast: margarine and concentrated juice could be replaced with butter and ordinary juice
👁‍🗨So, for us, surfing- beginners and people who prefer morning shifts the negative side was critical and we escaped from Gota D’Agua after first two weeks. So, it’s better to learn more about the schedule and the things that are important for you before the deal ☝️

Gota d‘Agua is not just any volunteer place. It is a family away from home. I had an amazing time here working as well as living, surfing and travelling. I love this place and the amazing guys who run this place. Thank you for letting me be part of this fantastic family. I’ll be back as soon as possible :)
