Las Marias Project has been the best work exchange I've done so far! Huge library of information on herbalism, self sustainability, nutrition, and so much more. The hours are very fair and the community has great people to spark engaging conversations with. There is so much potential for starting projects, and plenty of maintenance to be done. Still here currently and hope to stay longer!

The farm is located in a beautiful jungle in Las Marías. We had an amazing experience volunteering here and meeting wonderful people that are passionate about what they do. This is a great opportunity to reconnect with nature and learn about permaculture as well as living off-grid. We are grateful to have had the opportunity to contribute to a project that aims to promote a more conscious and harmonious relationship with nature.
