I worked here for 6 weeks and had a great time! The permanent and temporary staff were all really nice & welcoming, we ate together and went on some days out together (e.g. Mangrove boat tours, the El Tajín pyramids, nearby towns). The camp is really nice & on a lake which the sun sets over & you get amazing views, plus it's a few minute walk from a great beach which the sun rises over & doesn't have many people until you get quite a bit closer to the city centre (which you can walk to along the beach).

Loved the whole team, always felt part of it. Hotch treated everyone with respect. Learned about the local issues from the locals. It is the place in the region to feel connected to nature anytime. They even made some adjustments so I could be comfortable with my pet. It was a personal lesson on humbleness. There is still a lot of room for changes to be made on the garden so it becomes a great opportunity. The peaceful environment helped me gather my thoughts. The place is ideal for someone who has a mid term proyect, someone who can take the time to make a lasting impact.
