A Casa Ecológica Paraty is a wonderful place, great facilities, beautifully decorated and super peaceful. Lena is super chilled and trusting, leaving worldpackers to set their own hours, therefore the work is suited to someone with initiative and autonomy. But there's also opportunities to socialise with other worldpackers, the host and guests, we shared a lovely meal together! The hours leave plenty of time to explore the city of Paraty, and to enjoy the relaxed surroundings of the house.

A Lena me deixou super à vontade para fazer meus horários e para realizar meu trabalho. A casa é linda, confortável, agradável, tem estrutura excelente, tem muita natureza em volta e eu fiquei muito bem instalada. A cozinha ampla me permitiu fazer todas as minhas refeições tranquilamente. Tinha bicicleta disponível, em que fiz todos meus passeios com ela. Agradeço muito à Lena por essa oportunidade de conhecer uma casa sustentável e também a cidade de Paraty! Gratidão!!
