The Experience

Estamos começando um sonho nesse paraíso que já foi refúgio no passado para uma turma muito bacana de estrangeiros. Chegamos neste paraíso a pouco tempo com a intenção de construir um Ecolodge cheio de estilo. Para isso precisamos de todo tipo de ajuda em Bio construção, cuidado com a terra, pinturas, artes e todo tipo de dom cabível em um local que está sendo desbravado no meio da floresta

It is an amazing location with beautiful View to a cachoeira at the Das contes river and in the back wild forest and patically wild cacaofields. And also the team of volunteers was really good matching I will miss them. Only thing to improve is to organize long-term plans of the particular volunteers stay. Thus I could accomplish my self more to make the dream of growing totally the own food come true. But all in all I can recommend it!!

Important: In the state of Bahia there are THREE Agua Frìa. You gotta go to the one close to Itacarè, in the SOUTH of Bahia! We didn't know it and we went to the wrong one. Better communication would be necessary! My time at the Pousada was anyways really good, I extended my stay 10 days longer than expected. I love the location, it is in a quiet village the landscape is fantastic and since it is close to Itacarè you can easily reach the beaches. Fernando is cool & easy going but he needs to improve the organization: daily tasks, directions etc. Volunteers need instruction to work!

Voluntariar no eco lodge foi uma experiência muito diferente . Lá tudo é aventura ,la você tem espaço para expressar sua criatividade em forma de trabalho para a pousada . O lugar é lindo , isolado de tudo , é necessário atravessar o rio de barco para chegar na pousada, os voluntários geralmente dormem em barraca , redes , pois não á ainda estrutura suficiente para todos .O Fernando anfitrião é uma pessoa bacana é muito tranquilo ! Recomendo levar repelente pq la tem muito mosquito . Lá tem uma cachoeira linda também , gratidão por td🍀

O FERNANDO é um cara super gente boa , desejo que o projeto que ele está fazendo der certo , por enquanto ainda não está legal , dormir em um colchão no chão , em um quarto vazio , mas a pior parte são as tarefas que começam as 07:00 horas da manhã e vão até as 14hr ou 15hr , mesmo isso não estando no perfil do worldpackers , todas as tarefas são feitas sob pressão , e falta clareza pra explicar as tarefas , todos os dias as tarefas eram em geral diferentes , a fazenda fica a 35KM de Itacaré , e tem que atravessar um rio de barco pra chegar , não tem muita coisa pra fazer depois de voluntária

Luís é um camarada bacana e bem disposto a aprender coisas novas. No que se refere à barraca e à localização da fazenda, era algo que já havíamos combinado por video chamada, e conseguimos pra ele uma acomodação privativa... pena que não se sentiu confortável. Agradecemos pelo feedback e desejamos uma bela jornada de evolução e aprendizado. Valeu Luís!
