Unfortunately I didn't work out as they had too many volunteers at that moment but I stayed as a guest and had an amazing time with the lagarto na banana family.

O Lagarto é muito mais que uma experiência de voluntariado, é um mundo inteiro no mesmo lugar. Cheguei sem saber quanto tempo ficaria e já passam mais de 100 dias, o que acontece bastante com os hóspedes também: estender. Você conhece gente do mundo inteiro que convive num espaço aberto grande, com a visita de muitos animais e em meio à mata. Há classes diversas de dança, música, esportes, yoga.. cada um ensina o que sabe! O trabalho é tranquilo devido a energia das pessoas que estão e que chegam, e a cidade é maravilhosa, muitos golfinhos e paisagens maravilhosas. Só amor por esse paraíso!
