Isaac is a very warm and welcoming person who cares about the people coming to his project. He let us stay with him and at the cocoa farm. The latter was a real highlight as we experienced nature really closely, especially when flying the drone there. He did everything to make us feel good and after getting to know him better became a real friend. Would recommend staying with him and hope we stay in contact, mate :)

Thanks Isaac for this great experience - the best of both worlds (social media & cocoa). It has truly been amazing to learn about cocoa and going to the farm together. We stayed 3 days in the nature with the family that plants the cocoa beans and 1 week in Zipolite with Isaac. The nature location is breathtaking as it is in the highlands with the most beautiful river (could be compared to a natural whirlpool). We traveled as a couple and Isaac made it very easy for us and let us have flexible working hours. At the same time we spent time with the 3 of us and explored the area on his motorbike.

it wasn't really what was agreed, I think Isaac was not prepared to receive this volunteer, the address is not up to date on Worldpackers, my first experience on the platform was much lower than I expected. however Isaac is a good person and the project seems to be very good, just the time was not ideal to receive a volunteer.
