The Experience

As a Volunteer with Children of Panama - Damarli Estate Tour you will have the opportunity to explore the diverse land of Panama, enjoy harvest time with our migrant workers of the Ngabe Indian tribe, enjoy beaches, hiking and Boquete life. Your time will be spent with the children of workers. The parents go out and harvest coffee during the day. Children are not permitted to harvest, and as such you can make a difference in a child's life

David's estate was amazing. His rooms were nice, new, and really clean. There was always hot water. The kitchen area was beautiful and also very clean. The view from the place was great and being surrounded by coffee fields was truly an awesome experience. It was fun to see how the coffee process works. However, since we were paying to eat and stay there, we felt like we were taken advantage of a little bit. We felt limited with being able to buy food and since we cooked all the meals, we had to be strategic to not run out. We felt like he saw us as a way to make extra cash.
