My experiences in Venado were amazing. The people were great. The locals and travelers and volunteers gathered there. Venado’s strong point was the cozy atmosphere which helps them connect with each other. The facilities like showers and toilets were better than I had expected. And then, the location is awesome. There are restaurants, supermarkets, and nightspots within walking distance most of which are cheaper than those of Hotel Zone. Going to beaches involved taking a bus at a bus stop a few minutes' walk away, which was easy. It was the right place to do many fun things at a lower price.

For me the experience was great it was my first volunteer project and I love it a meet great people I learned about new cultures, the only thing was the problem about the food with the restaurant they didn't respect the time, aside for that everything was really great 🥰

Gracias Jai... we also had loads of fun with you. We are working with our partners from the restaurant to make it better on this "food matter". we hope to see you again!



This was truly an incredible experience, Ali is more of a relaxed guy with a lot of stories to tell. Manolo, Is always there for the volunteers and in case of help he will be there for you. Emiliano, was also helpful, and has a welcoming presence and you will not feel out of place when you are in Venado hostel. You really feel as if it was your second family learning from each other and sharing stories with each other. Not a single minute was wasted during my stance.
