United States

Lake View was such an awesome experience, especially for my first volunteer and solo travel to South America. Anyone that is questioning whether this is the right place, don't even think twice and just go! The people you will work with and meet truly become another family and everyone wants to be your friend. Everyone also really helps you with spanish if you are trying to learn the language and even challenge you, too. As a first work exchange trip, this opportunity really made me fall even morein love with not only travel but also submersing myself within a culture and foreign lifestyle.

Qué experiencia increíble fue estar en Gautapé!
No podría haber elegido lugar mejor para iniciar mi viaje en Colombia sino en esta ciudad y haciendo voluntariado en Lake View.
Son varios voluntarios en el hostel y eso hace la experiencia aún más increíble porque además de aprender con el personal del hostel usted puede compartir con gente de todas partes del mundo.
Me faltaría espacio para nombrar a todo el personal del staff que me hizo de esa experiencia increíble por eso todo lo que puedo decir es MUCHAS GRACIAS a todos por hacer de mi estancia un momento único de mi vida!
