Description was not accurate. None of the activities are actually happening right now. Pics are old and inaccurate. Property the school now primarily an Airbnb w/ two rentals. Accomodations were not as advertised. Trailer had no functioning appliances or hot water. No shared meals, but they did supply fresh produce. They did not check on the state of the trailer before telling me on a call that all that everything in it was functional. If you camp or can handle limited utilities, you'll be fine. Otherwise, not for you. Wasn't going to review, but it's remote and don't want anyone else stranded.

We are vegetarian and he is not and we didn't eat together but we jammed together. The trailer had problems, but no longer. The day he left everything was working in the trailer, including hot water because someone fixed the hot water that day. He had a refrigerator, stove etc. He knew the hot water was to be fixed but the night before he said he wanted to leave the next day so I kindly drove him to the area near the train station. It took two hours to drive him, and we don't leave people stranded. He always had a hot shower because our house and the airbnb was always available to him before 8 pm - 9 pm. I offered yoga as an activity, but he didn't want it. I left a very nice five star review for Jonah and I informed him before hand that I would leave a five star review, though he is not perfect, nor anyone. I was surprised to see the review he left and I don't feel I deserve it. He said he wasn't going to leave a review. :-( I wish him all the best and I forgive him.

My experience volunteering in the school was really great! Memo and Jennifer are great hosts and have a big heart, they treat you like family and are always making sure you're okay with tasks giving you freedom to spread your hours how you feel best. It was really nice to get in touch with nature and getting to know Jullian, Saint Izabel and seeing a lot of wild life. The place the school nice and comfortable. It was also really nice to teach some yoga at the retreats! Thanks for everything ;)

The school an amazing opportunity and experience for anyone and everyone! Memo was very kind and caring. He was an amazing host and was openly communicative with the exchange. The property and surrounding area were absolutely gorgeous and it was delightful being able to walk around and truly admire the surroundings. During my stay, I was able to truly embrace nature and its true beauty. The exchange was amazing and I would absolutely love to come back!
