Mi hermano que gusto, un personaje este Felipe jajajaja buen amigo, esperamos verte pronto, tengan cuidado Felipe come bastante jajajaja, fue muy responsable con lo acordado dejo excelentes videos, pero sobre todo nos dejo mucho de su cultura, del carisma de su gente, creo que la próxima visita será la nuestra en la casa de Felipe MMV abrazos querido hermano.



It was very great. The people there are so sweet and very kind. They treat you as a member of their own family. The food is awesome and the bedroom is very nice. You can swim at night and relax after a busy day of work. I loved been there and I wish to come back soon. Highly recommended

Mateo un gran Amigo, tu visita nos deja una hermosa experiencia, disfrutamos mucho sobre todo del karaoke, gracias por su apoyo y sin duda alguna los visitaremos también.



Es un lugar hermoso y rodeado de naturaleza, las instalaciones son divinas para disfrutar de un día bajo el sol, enamorada del lugar frente al río donde me hospedé. Con Robert siento que me llevo un amigo para toda la vida, que bonito haberte conocido. El personal de la hostería me trató como parte de la familia y me encantó que tienen la disposición a escuchar nuevas ideas.

Ha sido una de las experiencias que más me han hecho crecer personalmente (por todo lo que pasamos) y me siento súper agradecida con Robert, su familia y el personal de que me hayan apoyado en todo momento.

Sin duda alguna en Woldpakers, uno conoce mucha gente que puede llegar a ser increíble en cuanto a sus habilidades, pero todo esto se vuelve brillante cunado conoces gente que a más de sus habilidades son grandes seres humanos, Dio puede llegar a cambiar mucho tu perspectiva de las cosas es artista, es profesional en edición y diseño, creo el mundo podría ser mejor cuando aprendemos de las personas y sacamos lo mejor de ellas, agradezco a la comunidad por brindarnos esta plataforma para encontrar gente buena, que puede marcar tu vida, espero que nuestra amistad perdure y siempre será bienvenida en nuestro hogar.



Gracias a toda la familia Velez, me llevo un gran recuerdo, Roberto es un gran anfitrion, el lugar es increible y la verdad me la pase super bien, les deseo lo mejor D'Carlos y sin duda nos veremos pronto.

Mi novio y yo realizamos voluntariado en el aquapark D'carlos y fue muy agradable, Roberto y su familia te hacen sentir como uno más, todo el personal es muy amable, el clima es perfecto, las instalaciones son hermosas, excelentes para descansar y pasar buenos momentos. El voluntariado fue muy tranquilo, las labores fueron tal como se acordaron con Roberto. Muchas gracias a toda la familia de D'carlos, esperamos volver en alguna ocasión.
