Maria was a really good host. She made sure i was confortable and was always understanding. I left the finca earlier than planned because the job wasnt what i was expected but it was still a good experience overall. If you want to disconnect from real life and take a break in the nature this is the place for you !

I had an amazing time in Poptún. The hours and work were as agreed. I had my own space in a private room which was fitted with a washroom and a hammock. For food I had full access to the kitchen where I would work around the restaurant staff to cook my own meals and the ingredients were fresh, delicious and plentyful. They even had their own bakery with some amazing bread. My Spanish was very limited but the staff were helpful in breaking down language barriers. This was a great opportunity to reconnect with nature in a beautiful peaceful place.

Living at the guest house and working in Poptun will always have a special place in my heart. There was a lot of creative freedom in the role. Living here is a rustic experience in the middle of the forest, so being prepared for that helps. The wifi wasn't available in specific places but the hotel is currently updating it. Come with a lot of insect repellent and anti-itch meds as the mosquitoes are always there! As a photographer, I was able to come up with news ways to tell Finca's story and will come back again so I'd recommend it :)

I had a fantastic stay at the guest house, your stay will really take you back to nature. The hours and days off were all as agreed, I had a lovely private room and a shared bathroom. The horses were so sweet and I loved every minute of working with them. They took me to see the caves one day and they were stunning.

My time at the guest house was a truly incredible experience. For my first volunteer position I did not know what quite to expect but this placement has given me a lot of confidence to volunteer in the future. I want to highlight above all else just how incredible the people at Finca are. I had minimal experience with the Spanish language, but everybody was so patient while I struggled to explain what I wanted to say! I will miss the friends I made - we had a lot of fun, and hope to go back one day!
