Sara and Paco were great hosts, made me feel very welcome, as well as they're very sweet and cute baby Cami. I met amazing human beings at Akasha and had an overall great experience. Frida was very helpful and a good friend as well, she knows all the best places to visit :) I will never forget Akasha.

I loved the other volunteers, very lovely persons! Sara and Paco are also great people! The tasks are easy, and you can use your creativity! But we had some problems in the hostel...

Sara deposita una gran confianza en ti, flexibilidad y libertad para realizar las tareas acordadas, le interesa que te involucres en que el hostal se mantenga funcionando bien pero de igual forma que salgas a conocer la ciudad y alrededores. Para ella es muy importante interactuar con los huéspedes y entendí que no es meramente por buena imagen, en verdad genera un ambiente agradable para quienes nos encontramos ahi, sea como staff o visitantes todos compartimos la casa y nos gusta saber que así como buscamos descanso y privacidad también nos cae muy bien contar, escuchar y planear aventuras

Te extrañamos!!!! Increíble haberte tenido como parte del staff!!! Esperamos nos visites pronto! Sabes q en merida siempre tendrás un lugar donde llegar! Gracias x todo


I really enjoy my first worldpackers experience.

Sara is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! She gives freedom for you complete your tasks. The principal tasks are simple and if you want is possible give suggestions and make differents things!!!

The hostel is in a great location!!! Mérida is in great place with so many things to do. It's very cultural! In the city there are many programs, like a salsa classes, Yucatecan serenate, organic chocolate tasting and several museums.

Near of Mérida you can find cenotes, mayan ruins and beaches!!!
