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.

I enjoyed my stay with Isaac and his brother Gali (as well as with his parrot Goyo and dog Cosmo!). We had a lot of fun together, going out or just staying home playing chess or chilling with his friends.

My work was to take photos and videos of chocolate and the process, I also helped with the social media content plan. It was very interesting to know the details of the process and learn how they make chocolate!

Good luck with everything and give Goyo a big hug from me!)

Isaac is the most welcoming and warm person! I had a really nice week with him. The work is fun and interesting and Isaac is very flexible with the working times. He lives a 30 min drive out of Oaxaca but it’s easy to get into the center if you want that. Overall Isaac was so helpful and friendly and I really recommend this wonderful experience!

Mare and Isaac provided insight to a very organic and grassroots hands-on experience to processing cacao into delicious chocolate. They are flexible, open-minded and generous hosts.

Nuestra experiencia ha sido super buena! Más que nuestro anfitrión hemos quedado súper amigos de Isaac, su Cosmo y Doris (los perritos!). Es un anfitrión super presente y dedicado, muy divertido también. Su casa es increíble, desde la terraza se ve todo el mar.
Hemos aprendido del cacao, y trabajado en conjunto para ayudarle con toda la parte de marketing que hacía falta. Nuestra habitación era bien confortable. Estamos super gratos, recomiendo a cien por cien esta experiencia, gracias Isaac y Chocolahj!!
