This was my first volunteering experience and it couldn’t have been better. The people here are lovely, the nature is beautiful and the work never gets boring. You’re welcomed with open arms and always respected and appreciated for the work you do. María and all the other workers and volunteers here are incredible. They are always there for you if you have a question or need help with something and are so fun to spend time with. Working hours and free-time are perfectly balanced and you will lack nothing. I‘m so grateful for this experience, muchas gracias por todo.
