The Experience

A Casa da Floresta fica na região das Cachoeiras mais lindas de Paraty. Nossa casa é uma ilha cercada de água e precisa atravessar uma ponte para chegar em nosso terreno. Paraty fica no rio de Janeiro localizada na Costa Verde, região repleta de praias, centro histórico, vários festivais e uma cena cultural movimentada. Aqui precisamos de ajuda para limpeza de quartos e cozinha, auxiliar de cozinha em retiros , manutenção e jardinagem.

Fue nuestro primer voluntariado y fue una muy buena experiencia, el lugar es un paraiso en medio de la selva!
Hay dias que las tareas son sencillas y otros que son mas pesadas, pero generalmente se terminan temprano y te queda mucho rato libre! Ademas Rodrigo y Andressa siempre estan para lo que se precise.
Disfrutamos y aprendimos muchisimo, muy recomendable!

As fotos simplesmente não fazem jus ao local. A casa da floresta é incrivelmente linda e acolhedora, os anfitriões são gentis e pacientes. Espero muito poder voltar um dia!

Lugar increible, en el medio de la foresta, con os macacos a tu rededor, ardillas ect...
Estuvimos en un chalet solo para nosotros, rodeados del rio. Genial!!Lamentablemente no concidimos con otros voluntarios y en esas fechas no tubimos retiros de yoga. Las tareas eran simples y tranquilas, algunos dias mas, otros mucho menos.Rudd fué super comunicativo y respectuoso.Para llegar al centro de Paraty o supermercados, la Casa Foresta, està muy bien comunicada con autobuses. Lugar muy recomandable. Desconectar y conectar con la naturaleza. Volveriamos sin dudas!! ;)

Hermoso lugar para desconectarse y vivir unos días en la naturaleza. Cerca de las cachoeiras mas inportantes y rodeado de hermosos rios. Andressa una gran anfitriona. Volvería sin dudarlo

Eu tinha uma experiencia incrível na Casa Da Floresta com a Andressa e o Rud. O lugar é realmente imperdível, ok, está um pouco longo de Paraty, mas se você quer uma experiencia diferente, está aqui!
Gostei de tudo, das pessoas, do lugar, do trabalho e da região. Vale muito a pena fazer um voluntario ali. Voltaria com prazer!
