O que eu mais gostei nessa experiência foi o contato que eu tive com a natureza e a calmaria de Malalcahuello. Como o período que estive por lá foi de baixa temporada, tive pouca interação com pessoas mas quando ia ao mercado, por exemplo, cumprimentava os moradores locais. É importante ressaltar que os voluntários não dormem no hostel, e sim, em um outro local ao fundo da casa do anfitrião. O hostel é muito bonito, calmo e confortável, porém a cozinha e o banheiro dos voluntários são muito sujos. O anfitrião e os moradores foram sempre muito simpáticos comigo. Valeu demais essa experiência!

mi experiencia fue muy buena! los anfitriones me recibieron súper bien,y me explicaron todo, si tenía dudas las hacía y obtenía respuesta rápido. los horarios se respetan y los días libres también.
el pueblito es pequeño y bonito, tiene negocios incluso un pequeña farmacia.
En mi caso era la única voluntaria pero entiendo que es por la temporada, de todas formas pude interactuar y salir con los chicos que viven ahí! .
recomendaría dar a conocer el lugar donde viven y pasan más tiempo los voluntarios solo a modo de conocimiento, puede ser vía WhatsApp,etc.
Muchas gracias marcio y Lhaís ❣️

Minha estádia no Monrepos foi um respiro, o lugar é muito bonito! Realmente lindo acordar perto do rio e com vista pra montanhas nevadas. Lais e Marcio colaboraram muito para que eu tivesse uma boa experiência, oferecendo ajuda, dando dicas e possibilitando flexibilidade nos horários de trabalho. As tarefas são tranquilas e o hostel fica bem localizado. Muito obrigada por me receberem tão bem.

Malalcahuello es un lugar mágico 🏔✨perfecto para una desconexión total, realizar deportes y descansar por su puesto mi estadía en monrepos fue muy buena las horas trabajadas son las acordadas, también así las tareas son livianas
en cuánto a las instalaciones de los voluntarios sería importante adjuntar fotos del lugar
Marcio y Lhaís muy buenos anfitriones

Malalcahuello es un lugar que te maravilla desde un principio, por sus paisajes y personas ✨ y del que no dan ganas de irse❄️
Respecto al voluntariado en sí, se cumplen las especificaciones de horarios y tareas. Los anfitriones son flexibles y amables. Por último, en cuanto a las instalaciones compartidas con los voluntarios, se recomienda mejorarlas considerablemente🪄 Marcio y Lhaís gracias por todo🫶🏽
