i spent at Nomads 5 weeks helping with breakfasts,
Isla Mujeres is such a beautiful place, even it’s small you can’t be bored! you have opportunity to use a bike (what i did almost everyday) so you can explore its beauty on your own;
working hours are totally respected, also your days off are flexible, if you have special wish just ask;
volunteers and employees stay in one dorm what makes easier building a good team;
i definitely enjoyed my stay there and recommend volunteering at nomads everyone! you will live your dreams!! muchas gracias por todo, i already miss that place and people!<3

I had an amazing experience at Nomads. The hostel it's such a wonderful place to be, the staff was very friendly and nice with me and also the other volunteers. Working shift were pretty serious and demanding sometimes but I like it since it was a quite professional experience. Food was very good. It was impossible to get bored since you always meet so many other travellers and visitors. Great parties 3 times a week. And l I think this hostel was in the best location of the island! All in all I had a very great time and it was hard to leave this place at the end.
Thank you!

Simplesmente la mejor experiencia de mi vida! En Nomads encontré una familia, crié amistads que llevaré para siempre en mi corazón. El lugar es hermosissimo y viverás momentos muy especiales!! El trabajo es intenso, pero después puedes relajar a la playa 😊 Me encanté por todo y ya extraño todos!!

Fue una increíble experiencia, el hostel es hermoso , las instalaciones muy buenas, cumple con todo lo que ofrece, y el ambiente muy grato . Aprendí mucho y estoy agradecida por ello, hice amigos , me divertí, conocí la isla que aunque es pequeña tiene mucho que ofrecer. Estaré siempre agradecida con Nomads por la oportunidad de hacer un voluntariado con ellos espero volver algún día. Sin duda lo recomiendo !!
