A beautiful place with wonderful people. Flexibility to work where you would like to while feeling included in the family. Great food, you definitely will not go hungry. Be ready to immerse yourself in the jungle and enjoy! Thank you Rancho Margot

Rancho is a place full of amazing people! The volunteering program is very organized, and I was able to work in different areas (garden, dairy, housekeeping, kitchen). Delicious food, free yoga classes, and beautiful surroundings. My heart is with the staff, so friendly and generous. It felt like home. They are incredibly patient and knowledgeable. Thanks, Rancho Margot for everything! Hope to see all of you again :)

I applied to volunteer at Rancho Margot because I wanted to go somewhere where I could learn about sustainability, do yoga/get healthy, and practice my Spanish. I was not disappointed! First of all, Rancho Margot is beautiful - there are multiple hiking paths, a rushing river, and plenty of plants and animals to admire. Secondly, I learned so much from the volunteering tasks and got to practice my Spanish with the workers daily. Lastly, they really allow you to make your volunteer experience yours - many did their own projects and schedules were flexible to allow you to enjoy your experience.

As soon as I arrived at Rancho Margot I felt at home, the place is amazing at first glance and it just keeps on getting better. I feel so grateful for everything, the yoga lessons twice a day, the amazing and clean food and all the love I received ❤️ They always need people that are willing to help! I totally recommend volunteering at Rancho Margot, even more so if you have a particular project you can help with (I helped with architecture and design)

Rancho Margot has been an incredible experience for me! From the moment I arrived, the whole staff was sweet and helpful. The Ranch has an amazing project going on, it is really an inspirational environment and will change your life! I worked with the maids, kitchen, in the garden, and taught English to the kids in the next town over. I was able to practice my Spanish MUCHO! I wouldn't trade my time spend here for anything else in the world. Thank you Ivannia and the staff of Rancho Margot for an amazing month!
