Patricio y Ricardo tienen mucha experiencia con temas de voluntariado. Patricio te enseña muchas cosas valiosas sobre el cuidado del ecosistema, la cultura indígena local, medicina ancestral y agroecología. Ricardo cocina muy rico y es muy interesante conversar con él.
Estoy muy feliz con mi estancia en la finca y aspiro que vayan otras personas dispuestas a mejorar el lugar.

Mi estancia en la finca fue maravillosa, los anfitriones Patricio y Ricardo son muy amables, las vistas son impresionantes y los animales son encantadores, durante mi estancia aprendí mucho de agricultura orgánica y saberes ancestrales, además que tiene unos hermosos paisajes donde se puede hacer senderismo y disfrutar aún más de la naturaleza.
Recomiendo 100% a futuros viajeros que estén motivados y deseen estar un entorno tranquilo y hermoso.
¡Muchas gracias Ricardo y Patricio! Espero volver pronto... :)
