I want to thanks Cris and Marie for accepted me in the Oca, my experience was really fun, I met amazing people and made friendships, I went hikings and beautiful waterfalls, I loved the firepits moments where we gathered and played some random songs. The place and the hills views are amazing, I stayed in the Oca Roça in most of my stay in Delfim, there are a good structure and it's so peaceful. But keep it mind that you have to be proactive and have a nice communication for this kind of volluntter, because the hours and tasks are not fixed.

Cristiano made everything to make me comfortable and helped me find my way to the hostel. Even tho we were only 3 volunteers, we went on hikings, did some yoga classes for 55reals/class, went to see some waterfalls…
We worked for 4-5 hours which honestly didn’t feel like working ! We cleaned, painted the walls and did some diy.
The people were extremely welcoming and friendly even tho I don’t speak any Portuguese
I already miss the puppies and the breathtaking landscape.

Thank you for everything !!

A Oca Mantiqueira é um paraíso na terra. Delfim Moreira é uma cidade pequena, do interior mineiro e, tem todo meu carinho.
Fiquei cerca de 1 mês em Delfim, aproveitei a cidade como se eu morasse lá e, fugi da rotina também. Meu aprendizado como pessoa foi grandioso. A mantiqueira é uma mãe.
O Cris e a Marie são pessoas especiais.
Eu vou voltar para Delfim, acredito que será minha morada nos próximos anos. A paz que a cidade emana, é surreal.
Saudades de todos 🌍💚

Minha 1º experiência não poderia ter sido melhor! Cris e Marie são incríveis, pessoas de luz! Me acolheram com muito carinho e fizeram eu me sentir em casa. Fiquei 8 dias no Oca Delfim e 7 dias no Oca Roça, ambos os lugares foram maravilhosos, uma paz surreal, cercada de pessoas amáveis e muita natureza. Horários super flexíveis, e trabalhos leves. Tive contato com vários gringos que também estavam voluntariando, ótima oportunidade de treinar meu inglês e aprender sobre a cultura deles. Tive que ir embora 4 dias antes do combinado, devido a problemas familiares, mas pretendo voltar🤎. Gratidão

Hasta ahora la mejor experiencia que tuve fue aquí, en oca roca ❤️ Cristiano y Mari son personas excelentes, receptivas. Personas con las que podes hablar infinidades de cosas, tienen mucho para enseñar. Ame mis días acá, me sentí súper cómoda y confortable. Con respecto a las tareas diarias siempre hay alguna cosa para hacer y vós manejas tus días y horarios que prefieras. Sin dudas volvería a este lugar, recomiendo que puedan llegar hasta aquí y tener una experiencia diferente. Gracias por recibirnos tan bien, hasta la próxima!
