I recommend the experience to all those adventurous hardworking volunteers out there. I truly believe in the project and with hard work and commitment volunteers can make a huge difference in the life of every member who is part of the project. Ideas are always welcome and appreciated. The house has the nicest view; however, I think it's necessary to have a room available for all volunteers who need a place to study and/or work. I also think volunteers could be offered a refreshment or breakfast since it can be a little expensive living there since each ride in mototaxi costs $4r.

Casa do Mar is a very special place in Rio. You are on the edge of pacific rain forest over-viewing the cliffs and sea. I felt comfortable there - Larry is a very open minded chap and I had many interesting talks with him. I also met many interesting people in his house and in the nearby NGO - where English lessons took place. Meeting new people there helped me to improve my Portuguese and make new friends. I also enjoyed teaching kids in favela - which was a bit challenging - but very rewarding especially when you see kids having fun. Long story short - I enjoyed it and recommend it!!!

Foi uma experiência excelente, me conectei muito com a cultura local, o projeto Favela Inc é fantástico. Infelizmente tive que sair antes do previsto porque tive que voltar ao meu estado para resolver uns assuntos, mas as semanas que passei na Casa do Mar foi muito boa, super recomendo.

Minha experiência na Casa Do Mar foi incrível ! Consegui me conectar com a cultura local e com a natureza . Há uma localização perfeita, que nos oferece acesso aos melhores bairros do Rio . Na Casa do Mar , conheci pessoas incríveis que me ajudaram com o meu espanhol e o meu inglês. Os anfitriões nos fazem gozar da melhor experiência possível, nos fazendo sentir-se em casa . Larry e Meg, são muito companheiros, respeitosos ,gentis e receptivos.
AGRADEÇO POR ME DADIVAR COM ESSA OPORTUNIDADE , QUE ME FOI MUITO ENRIQUECEDORA!
