It's cool, calm and brilliant staying with Santiago. The house is cozy, the work is chill and Santiago is open minded, fun, chatty and has a good music taste - it's a great pleasure to be in his company. I will for sure return to visit him again and beat him in chess.

Fue mi primer voluntariado y fue maravilloso, me encanto crucita, su ambiente me hizo sentir como en casa, igual que Santiago, es un personaje jajaja siempre tiene algo interesante por decir. Aprendí mucho de su diversos proyectos, en la finca hay mucho por hacer y requiere de apoyo. Importante el bloqueador y el repelente. Espero volver!!

Fue mi primer voluntariado y superó por completo mis expectativas, las tareas y horarios fueron flexibles, te permite interactuar con la comunidad y hacer diferentes actividades de ocio donde te conectas con la vida que te rodea. En la granja aprendes y te permiten intercambio de saberes, comes lo que cosechas, plantas un árbol y es una inversión a futuro. Mil gracias a Santiago por su hospitalidad y humanidad
