We loved our stay at the organization, a fun place with lots going on, staying a long time is a real benefit so you can enjoy the freedom of taking ownership of projects your working on and getting involved in the community. It takes a week to settle in and find your role but once you are settled you will feel part of the casa caribe family.

Good experience overall. The hostel is stunning and the food is so good. Good environment with the managers and cool vibes with the other volunteers. Pretty far from everything tho (beach and supermarket are like 15 minutes walk)

CasaCaribe, un espacio hermoso para aprender diversas tareas, compartir con personas muy interesantes e involucrarse en proyectos increíbles. Beate y Federico están todo el día haciendo de ese lugar más lindo. Al principio puede ser un poco difícil entender tus tareas, pero con el pasar de los días te acomodas como en tu casa. Si tienen dudas, pregunten!!Siempre habrá una respuesta. Mención especial para las chiquillas de la cocina, Jacki&Marlene❤ Una experiencia única en la que vas a participar de distintos proyectos pensados desde el desarrollo sustentable (social, ambiental y económico)
