Angél and Sandra were excellent hosts especially considering we spoke little to no Spanish! We were unfortunate to not meet the daughter however the parents were both lovely hosts for the three of us. The accommodation and hospitality is perfect for experiencing volunteering in a lovely part of the Costa Rican jungle. Angél was even nice enough to take us zip-lining and to a nearby waterfall :)

I had such a beautiful time! You become part of the family and it's a really good feeling to participate in this project by helping them achieve their great goals for the farm.

Ha sido mi primera experiencia como voluntaria. Desde el principio Angel y Sandra me han hecho sentir parte de la familia, cuidándome y enseñándome cada día nuevas actividades.
A parte de las tareas que requiere el voluntariado, he visitado los alrededores y me han encantado, el río, la catarata, Horquetas.... De la mano de Sandra he aprendido alguna que otra receta típica.
Es una experiencia donde vives en primera persona la vida cotidiana de los locales.
He aprendido mucho con esta experiencia, el cuál me ha presentado a unas personas maravillosas.
