My experience in the project lasted 3 weeks and I had a great time ! The food is delicious and the amount is perfect, the work hours are respected and you can choose something to do depending on your energy and the connection to nature is amazing. However, your experience definitely depend on the volunteers working with you, do not expect a strong leadership from a « manager », you have to be quite independent, be able to figure out things by yourself. Thank you to every volunteer that i met and Hannah, Margret, Steven and Maya for all the good energy you put into this place. ❤️

I highly recommend the project to anyone looking to meet and bond with other travelers and locals. If you like to hike there is a beautiful trail on the property and the garden is perfect for plant lovers.

I had so much fun, I was only there for about a week, but I learned a lot about life on a farm, living & working in a community and met so many great people. I definitely would want to come back to learn some more.

I came to the finca in a couple and stayed for 3 weeks. We loved our time here and wished we had stayed longer! We received private room and met so many lovely people. The food was delicious and the tasks varied everyday. We did lots of fun activities afterwork everyday and on the weekends. ❤️ Some things I didn't like were the price we paid plus the work we did, however it was still SO worth it. And some of the tasks we did were just busy work. Advice I would give to another volunteer wouldbe to bring some warmer clothes , good work boots(they have some to borrow if you forget) and gloves:)

If you're looking for a good place to start a journey, e.g. without any volunteering experience, this is the place for you. The communication with one of the hosts, Lara, was incredibly simple before arrival & everything was organized just as clearly during our stay. Everyone living on the farm contributes to creating a safe, social and comfy place for the volunteers. There are free activity offers from hosts/other volunteers almost everyday, fun game/movie Nights, & the work is very diverse. You are free to choose what you want to do each day. ¡Muchas Gracias a Lara, Tavo, Bri y Steven!
