This experience is very different to what is described on here. 36hrs per week not 30, 1 day off not 2. 3 meals a day is really access to the kitchen and use of SOME things there. We found a note asking us not to eat the apples after we had one. There are rules like only 1 avacado per week etc. Room was the smallest on the property, 2 single beds & when the lower bed was out it filled the floor space & door couldn't open so getting out for toilet etc was a struggle. Not a fair exchange. When we voiced our concerns Maria said she would speak to us again, but disappeared for days instead👎

The Finca is a great place to be, The people are very nice even with the language barrier. They do everything possible to make you feel at home, they are very helpful with everything.
If like me you don’t like to cook, you should mention this before signing up :)

What an amazing time I had here at the Finca ,from the moment I saw the place on internet I knew I could not go wrong in applying to volunteer here. As always I gave my 100% in working to what was agreeded upon and they would always let me know how much they appreciated it. Owner can get stressed out sometimes as anyone knows if you are an owner, but believe me she has a great heart . The staff always were laughing which complimented the endless birds sounds you hear on the property. My private accommodation was just perfect for me. All in all loved it ,not to mention the great dog s Yes

Realmente la pase muy bien, me sentí muy comodo.
Las cosas claras desde el inicio hizo que no haya malos entendidos y generar un mal clima.
Muy agradable el clima de la gente, siempre dispuestos a ayudarte, mas si tenes algun problema.
Carole y su gente me hicieron sentir como un miembro mas de su gran familia y eso lo voy a agradecer eternamente. Gracias por todo. Quiero volver!
