I had an amazing 2 weeks in the project! Everything was amazing from the welcoming with open arms on the beach to the moment I said goodbye. No two days were the same. Igor and Veluma made you feel at home and create a wonderful safe and supportive learning and working environment. The location is out of this world. The view of the sea from my tent is something I'll miss waking up to! Thank you so much for the fantastic experience!

The project was an amazing experience. It was even better than I could ever imagine. Bonete Beach is a wonderful place and the project is a project with a lot of potential. Every day had something different to be grateful for and amazed by. Igor and Veluma are great hosts! You'll learn a lot from them. Thank you for everything🤍

Igor made me feeling so super welcome. He gave me so much support before my arrival and during my stay as well. I was aible to learn many things to make me integrating at my place and further more I hade the option to enjoy the magic places of the island. To be honest 2 weeks is a really short periode to dive deeper and I felt little bit sad to leave that place and people who became a part of my family.

This was my first volunteer experience with worldpackers and I am so grateful to have done it with the project! It was an amazing experience and they are like family now. I had little knowledge of permacultura and I can now say that I learned so much it motivated me to one day create a Permaculture farm in my island of Puerto Rico. There are many activities to always be helping around and learning. I did about everything and in the end I had some spare time to use my talents snd create a youtube video for Felipe and the project to help spread his amazing goals! Obrigado por tudo:)

The site is unique not only for the place (consider for myself the closest I have ever been of a Paradise) but for the people. I recommend two weeks at least, the first one to obtain/learn all the knowledge and know how's from the people and the second one keep doing that, start being proactive and accomplish the needs of the nature, time to learn from the Mother Earth . This is an incredible way to grow and enhance yourself and learn a lot about permaculture. Be part of the Family 🌱
