This was definitely one of my best work exchange experiences!!! Julie made me feel so much like part of the family from the start, and Patricio, the cat - who's actually the owner - would always keep me company. No heavy work at all, great sense of community, I made dear friends I'll be carrying for life. There is plenty of time to get to know the city and the culture and connect with the locals, walk through the neighborhood - which is mouth-dropping gorgeous + I didn't feel like was unsafe. Thank you so much Carlos & Julie for the opportunity, I highly recommend this place ♥

Angel is the man. He is a very responsable and hard working person which i will recommend anytime to any host. Thx for everything Angel!



It was an amazing experience in every way. Carlos was very welcoming and a great host! I felt at home every day and I became friends with other volunteers and guests. The work that needs to be done is simple and it leaves you with enough time to discover the city and do other activities. I would totally recommend this experience to everybody who wants to visit Guadalajara and have a great time.
