Great volunteers! Hope you the best girls!



This is a great experience for people who love staying in contact with nature and go to the beach very often (here you can do both of them daily!)
Before you go, just try to confirm that the restaurant will be open — the experience is way more funny if the restaurant staff is also living there and if there are clients getting in and out all the time — that didn’t happened to us in one of the weeks of our stay, when the restaurant closed for restoration works and then the experience was way more boring, since the “Huerto” is located in a very quiet place with not much people to see and meet.

La chata linda piba, Alex súper amoroso, y los demás chicos hicieron que mi paso corto por punta sal fuera llevadero.

Fue mi primer voluntariado en el extranjero y realmente es una experiencia recomendable, estuve un mes y lo pase increíble! Conocí gente extraordinaria, las personas que trabajan allá son realmente buenas en todo sentido, siempre muy atentos y preocupados con los voluntarios. Punta Sal es increíble y tranquilo 🖤
