Awesome adventure, Manuel, Citlali and Fabian are such a great hots, they teach you all about the farms the proyects the culture, they care of the volunteers as a real family. they are simply the best, im only wondering when can i go back for more :) . really love this place

The farm I stayed, is in the middle of the forest and surrounded by wonderful nature. My advise would be to ask about everything ahead. From the workload, to if there are clean blankets or even enough toilet paper. Be specific on which farm you want to work at, because for example I was in one with only fishes which wasn't my initial interest. The workers there are very kind, work hours are kept. And Manuel is very nice, kind and will try to help as much as he can. Keep an eye for pulgas!

The natural environment is amazing, you get to be in the middle of a forest. The hours are respected, just make sure you know what you will be needed to do and on which of the farms, cause it makes a difference. The couple who works at the farm I went to, were very kind people but if you don't speak a bit of Spanish, it can be challenging! The room was in a problematic condition when I arrived,(missing essentials as well)and the bathroom too. Manuel (the co-owner) is doing his best to accommodate and help!

It's being such a amazing opportunity to learn more about nature, sustainability and how the locals live. Emmanuel and Citlali don't live in the area but they keep a great communication with the volunteer, the food is great and the room is comfortable. I super recommend
