This is a great experience for people who love staying in contact with nature and go to the beach very often (here you can do both of them daily!)
Before you go, just try to confirm that the restaurant will be open — the experience is way more funny if the restaurant staff is also living there and if there are clients getting in and out all the time — that didn’t happened to us in one of the weeks of our stay, when the restaurant closed for restoration works and then the experience was way more boring, since the “Huerto” is located in a very quiet place with not much people to see and meet.

1. La comunicación de parte del anfitrion no fue buena
2. La habitación no contaba con sabanas limpias ni la limpieza correspondiente
3.Los días libres no era 2 si no 1, aunque logramos llegar a un acuerdo
4. Habían solo tablas de paddle y no eran de libre uso
5. Bromas machistas de parte del personal masculino
6. Cambio de humor y actitud repentino del anfitrion
7. Especificar mejor las tareas y de que trata el desayuno
8. Por ultimo consultar descuento para voluntarios

La estadía en punta sal dejando fuera el voluntariado fue hermosa, su playa, el pueblo, la fauna y flora.

Nuestro paso por La Pirámide fue grandioso, nos sentimos súper cómodos, aprendimos mucho sobre la cultura y gastronomía local. Al estar en temporada baja el servicio es tranquilo y tuvimos tiempo de pasear y disfrutar la hermosa y tranquila playa de punta sal!
Durante la estadía tuve una decaída de salud fuerte y el equipo de La Pirámide no dudo en darme una mano con todo lo que estuvo a su alcance.
Nos vamos contentos y con ganas de volver en un futuro!!
Gracias a todxs!!
