El lugar es muy bonito, tiene varias actividades para realizar, como trekking, snowboard y sky, y podes conocer otros voluntarios e iniciar un intercambio cultural muy bueno; pero lamentablemente el voluntariado no vale la pena, es un lugar conflictivo , abusan de las tareas y no obtienes ayuda por los trabajadores del lugar. Tuve una mala experiencia, junto a otros 3 voluntarios, fuimos humillados y corridos en plena nevada; el anfitrión que esta detrás de este perfil no se ocupa nada relacionado al voluntariado, quien lo hace es su hija. Varias cosas que ofrece en dicho perfil no las cumple,

mi estadía fue buena, disfrute mucho.
Antonio es una persona excelente, amable y graciosa lo cual nos divertimos mucho. por otra parte su hija Verito"quién se encarga de los boluntarios muy inresponsable, falta de compromiso, lo cual dificultava nuestro trabajo ya que ella no hacía el suyo. tubo maltrato hacia los boluntarios en más de una ocasión lo cual eso no estuvo nada bueno.

A experiência foi ótima, Manuel e a sua família são super simpáticos, as tarefas são bem divididas e não é nada pesado, coisas que você faria na sua casa. Venham preparados para jogar pool e ganhar, o Manuel não deixa fácil 🤣
