I had the opportunity to volunteer at Utopia for three months. My overall experience was amazing. The scenery and nature are breathtaking and the river that changes every day is just steps away.
Pia and John are great. They are super friendly and accommodating, by the end of my stay I really felt like family and was sad to go. The rest of the full-time staff there are a ton of fun and really nice.
I would highly recommend Utopia for anyone who is looking for a getaway from the hustle and bustle that life can bring and would like a new jungle experience.
I hope to be back again one day!



I volunteered in Utopia for 6 weeks and had an amazing time. The natural scene with all it's beauty, waking up to birdsongs every day, the health focused lifestyle that a volunteer can live there, the beautiful river, the easygoing management and staff are all making your stay an unforgettable experience and of course the delicious veggie food that they spoil you with :) last but not at least the close proximity to Semuc and the lovely Mayan community makes your Utopia stay full and makes sure that want to return one day.

Thank you Pia and John for an awesome jungle experience :D

Hostel owners John and Pia very good hosts.



I had the most rewarding experience at Utopia, I mean, how couldn’t I when the people is amazing and the place left me speechless everyday. I feel very grateful for this opportunity, I learned a lot of things.

I am definitely coming back, and, worldpacker, if you have the chance to go to this place, I wouldn’t think it twice.

Very good crew! Definitely not a bad place to spend some time. Owners are very friendly. I enjoyed my time there very much. The tasks you have to do cant even be called a job since they are easy and most of them are enjoyable. Just regular bartending with a lot of time spent just chilling in an awesome place with a great vibe. I am coming back one day!
