The Experience

Help us to maintain the gardens nice and tidy so, when we have new guest coming to the lodge could feel the wonderful energy of the place as same good feeling for everyone else. We need some help in raking. Plant Jamaican flower seeds into the ground as soon it starts to rain! Plant the pineapples. ( Rooting and growing pineapple tops is easy). We expect you working 4 hrs a day 5 days a week. Please, contact me for more info. :)

Stayed 1 month in Mamallena, it was very good, peacefull ans quiet.
Don t expect to have a great fun with the manager, he changes always mood, love to stay alone and not listen you if you want to give him some advices (every things have to be and to to do in his way).
Dogs are lovely and you will feel good overthere if you love nature.
Thanks for all !

That is true don't expect fun with manager when he is busy at work. To add value to others, one must first value others Sophie.
Safe onward travels, hope you have some wonderful adventures ahead in all aspects of your life :)



Muy buena experiencia! Pasamos unas semanas de trabajo y diversión muy buenas, con mucho respeto y amistad. El lugar es grande y necesita mucha ayuda con la naturaleza. Comenzamos un trabajo de granja que espero sea mantenido y mejorado con la ayuda de más voluntarios.

Mamallena es un lugar muy bonito, pretty como se dice aca en panama.
Esta ubicado en la cima de un cerro tiene una vista increible, ademas q pasa un pequeño rio.
Hay varias caminatas q se pueden realizar cercanas al lodge.
A una hora en auto hacia el oeste hay playas.
En la otra dirección entre los cerros hay varios paseos para conocer india dormida, chorro macho ,unas piletas termales, un mariposoario,etc.
Destaco la buena energia de los afintriones q siempre nos ayudaron en la tareas y en el tiempo libre recorrimos la zona realmente inolvidable.
