The moment I walked into Gota D' Àgua I felt immediately welcome and at home!
I honestly can't recommend this camp enough!
The place is beautiful and not too far from the beach and the work is simple to do.
I can't thank you boys enough for taking me in and letting me stay for the last 6 weeks! It's been so much fun & I have memories that will last me a lifetime 😊

I am going to miss you guys so much! I wish you all the best & good luck with everything in the future 😊

.. Goodbye for now but not forever ❤

Completely happy for let me be part of this amazing team :)!! I could´t have chosen better as my first volunteer experience.
The entire team is very pleasant and they are super committed to their dream, which inevitably leads to want to help in what is posible, always looking for improvements to provide a better service. Also the place is very close to the beach so you can go surfing everyday! Nice beer sunset and BBQ at night.

This was my first Worldpackers experience, and i couldn't have asked for a better group of people!! The guys here aren't just working, they're inviting you to be part of a family. You spend the days on the beach (say hi to Josè, the beach puppy!!), and the nights at Bbq's with the guests, watching the sunset. It's a pretty perfect life!!

Cheers for everything guys, i won't forget my time here! I'll be back in Summer to check on the Bar 😎

What can I say about this awesome team? Just that I HAVE A NEW FAMILY IN PORTUGAL! ❤️ They are so nice and always open to new opinions and ideas, the surf camp it felt like home for me. They are such a good teacher if you wanna learn surf and they are always ready to party! Also I was the only girl in the staff for a while and they always treated me as a sister and took are about me 🤗 I LOVE U GUYS!

I stayed one month in the surf camp and it was a good experience! All the staff are so nice, and available. I could learn surfing and it was an awesome experience. I'm just a little bit sad to dont have seen some guest in the house during one month.. The only thing is there is no free laundry and no free tour like it's write.. And no yoga classes during the winter.. It's a really good place, i recommanded but more for the summer!
Thank you so much at Ricardo and all the staff for their friendless! :*
