My stint at the eco village was absolutely fantastic! Victor was like a sustainability guru, welcoming me with open arms and a treasure trove of knowledge. He showed me the ropes of eco-friendly living and building in the most laid-back yet insightful way possible. I came away not just with newfound skills but also a refreshed perspective on living more consciously. Seriously, if you're up for an offbeat adventure that's both fun and meaningful, this place is where it's at! Trust me, you won't regret diving into Victor's super cool project at the eco village.

The two of us really enjoyed our stay at the eco village. Victor and Lexie are genuine people and gracious hosts and have really put their all into making the eco village a permaculture project worth supporting. We especially appreciated their commitment to balancing work/relaxation - we had lots of time to hang out, rest, and explore the jungle together - and they're great cooks!

My experience in this volunteer program was quite good... the tasks I did were simple, such as feeding the animals, cleaning the land, construction work, planting the eco village, housework, etc. You learn a lot about life in the Mayan jungle and the skills you need to live there. Victor is a good host, he is flexible, understanding and fun.
