Working in Mayachik was a good overall experience for me, a place where people can come and chill. There are various tasks where you can help, should it be gardening, building, teaching, cooking, or any other thing! The place has a good vibe and the people working there too, would recommend! (And if you know how to cook, it's definitely a good point)

Increíble experiencia, me conecté muchísimo con gente local, pude descansar, los trabajadores son súper amables y el ambiente amigable. San Juan es un lugar hermoso, sin duda uno quiere quedarse muchísimo tiempo más.

No podría describir con palabras lo hermoso que fue mi estadía en Mayachik. Me hicieron sentir como en casa.
Están abiertos a tus propuestas acerca del trabajo, la comida es riquísima y el ambiente relajado.
My stay here was amazing. I learned a lot and they made me feel like part of their family.
I definitely am going to miss them!
