The hosts Omar and Laura were extremely welcoming and kind. The tours were immersive, educational and adventurous and I learnt a lot about the history of Puebla and Xicotepec. The hosts, along with Tony were helpful guides and accompanied me on various trips around the city. There was a slight sanitation issue as the bathroom and bedroom were not the cleanest. Nevertheless I was comfortable and safe. Overall an enriching experience :)

Omar, Laura, Lupita and Thonny were really welcoming and were happy to show me around Xicotepec de JuƔrez. I also went hiking with their 20 dogs it was amazing, and to the waterfalls, explored the city and nature. They're very proud about their puebla and gave me alot of information about its history.. Volunteering there was not hard at all, I was not asked to do much, except for painting and photography which were the main things I applied for.

My friend and I left the WP experience shortly after arrival. In spite of Omars kindness and how helpful he had been all the way the living situation did not meet our expectations. It is a beautiful thing to have rescued so many animals however they were allowed everywhere including countertops in the kitchen and in our room which it took smell off. We talked to Omar about it, he was cool and helped us find a ride onwards. After it all he asked me not to give a bad review but also gave me a 'no show' which I felt was unfair given our time and resources spent coming to the hostel.

We do apologize for the no show but it would of asked me for review wich I din't have ,I only saw you guys 15 minutes ,
We did stayed the amount of cats13 and 20 dogs ,and before accepting you guys as volunteers we asked how you'll felt about pets
Having this amount of rescue pets would be inhumane having them cage up
We do feel sorry for the miss understanding of you and simone and not meeting your high expectations, as we mention perhaps this was not for you'll
As we have never had any issues with other volunteers
We hope the rest of you trip around Mexico meets your expectations,

We've decided to end our stay after we arrived at the location. The place didn't quite meet our expectations as we told Omar before leaving.

La labor que hace Omar con los animales rescatados es destacable y las tareas del voluntariado permiten conocer de una manera increƭble Xicotepec de JuƔrez. AdemƔs es una persona amable y atenta. Sin embargo, las condiciones del alojamiento no nos parecieron adecuadas y deberƭan mejorar mucho en cuanto a limpieza.

Fue una experiencia inesperada, nos conectamos mucho con la cultura local, las historias del pueblo. Aprendimos mucho sobre espiritualidad mexicana, descubrimos lugares increĆ­bles dentro de la naturaleza e incluso participamos en un Temazcal. 100% recomendado

Omar y Lau son dos grandes personas que verdaderamente les apasiona lo que hacen, Eco Turismo en Xicotepec. Visitamos museos, cascadas, aguas cristalinas, y demĆ”s lugares de interĆ©s. Saben muchĆ­simo y compartieron con nosotros su conocimiento. El cafĆ© de la maƱana es increĆ­ble, como cada perro y gato que convive con ellos. Recomiendo conocer Xico, y tambiĆ©n colaborar en su proyecto. Toni colabora con ellos, y nos acompaĆ±Ć³ en todo momento. Muchas gracias por recibirme!
