The Experience

The AbaquarHostel is located in a wonderful setting surrounded by nature. Our volunteers will help us 4 to 5 hours per day, different tasks every day! We have a nice restaurant with a great bar which is open every day! The island is breathtaking and there are no cars on the island making it one of the most tropical and unspoiled places in the world. =)

Oi Livia! Muito obrigada voce! Nos ajudou muito! Esperamos que um dia voce volte! Beijos! Fernanda e Peter



My experience at Abaquar was incredible! Fernanda and Peter are very organized and scheduled, wich facilitates our work. They were very nice to me and I could met some great people there, I also had a good interaction with others volunters and had a lots of fun. I really fell in love with Boipeba, it's a paradise, I recommend the island to everyone looking for a beautiful and quiet place to relax, people there are very helpful and friendly. I'll probably go back there in the future.

Muito obrigada!
Um grande abraco, Fernanda e Peter



I had a great time working as a volunteer at Abaquar! Sol, Peter and Fernanda were great hosts. There were days with hard work, others with less work load. Time schedule were always respected and divided between volunteers. My free time was always spent at the beach. Island of Boipeba is a paradise! I was really felling at home and an island native.
