The Experience

São muitos projetos, entre eles, melhorar a estrutura e funcionamento do lugar, como consertar porteiras, arames, elétrica, buscar folhas para compostagem, cavar canteiros, cuidar dos cavalos, buscar grama para os cavalos, curativos, medicações, fazer calçada, mosaico, além de claro, tarefas da casa.

Quedar en Refugio El Charrua fue un grand regalo!
Alessandra, la anfitriona, es sensacional, responsable, atenta, amable y me brindó una experiencia de aprendizaje mejor de lo esperado.
Recomiendo a todos conocer el paraiso llamado El Charrua.
Gracias por todo, querida amiga Alessandra, seguramente nos vemos pronto.

Passei uma semana no rancho el charua, muito bem recebida pela anfitriã, a Ale, que gentilmente me passou seus conhecimentos sobre doma livre de cavalos. Conheci a dona Heloísa que me fez dar boas risadas que há tempos não dava. Uma verdadeira imersão cultural, tchê! Recomendo demais essa experiência. Gratidão, Ale. Da um beijo na zoraide por mim 💕

Experiência ótima! Alessandra é veterinária, domadora de cavalos e professora de ioga, aprendi muito com ela, além das várias histórias de experiências em viagens que ela tem. Trabalho com horas flexíveis, trabalhamos na horta e com os cavalos, organizamos o galpão. A imersão na cultura local é riquíssima, aprendi mt com ela e Heloísa (nossa vizinha). Ale me levou pra lugares lindos tbm, sempre saíamos um pouco do sítio para dar uma volta. A estrutura do sítio é simples mas confortável, e por ser afastado da cidade a internet oscila um pouco. Momento pra se conectar com a cultura e natureza!💖

El refugió charrúa es un lugar donde te sientes a gusto, Ale es una persona muy cálida, abierta y con muchos valores como persona, una amiga con la cual puedes compartir preocupaciones o historias de vida, la verdad es que si buscas estar tranquilo en la naturaleza, este es el lugar.
sin dudas volvería por qué la experiencia fue muuy buena, lo recomiendo sin ninguna duda. ✨

Es mi primer voluntariado y realmente deseo encontrarme con más personas como Ale, es muy buena persona, mi experiencia en el refugio charrua estuvo demasiado genial, compartí y aprendí nuevas cosas, conocí a otras voluntarias que también me ensañaron un montón, estoy agradecido con la experiencia que tuve en el lugar. Los voy a extrañar a todos 💗
