My time at the lodge was quite rough. I didn't get enough guidance for what they want me to do and when, also got some overlapping instructions which led me to not get into the flow of the place. Daro told that he doesn't like to be asked too many questions and that we should figure things out ourselves, which I understand because he had a lot on his plate, but it also led to situations where I felt lost and didn't feel comfortable asking about what to do. There were a lot of things that didn't work and so I had to leave earlier than planned. If you apply, you should know some Spanish

Hello Saimi,

Thanks for your feedback. We know you should know some spanish, that's why we write it on the rules and explanations.

We are sorry because of the situation, there was the best experience ever. However, we did our part as we do always and things goes well.

Sometimes we need to see the big picture and start working from ourselves.

At the same time, please to all these new volunteers that want to come to us. Please read everything in advance and remember that the success of the experience is mostly up to you and how you adapt to our place.

We are always the same, more or less work depending on the season but the same atmosphere and values. We learn form everyone and each situation, nevertheless if you are willing for an epic experience please be proactive, kind and follow the few rules we have to create such an amazing team!

This was my first volunteer experience and has set the bar very high for the future. Everyone was welcoming from the moment I arrived. I had originally signed on to da social media position, but ended up helping out with various tasks— maintenance, helping with camp activities, organizing games, serving meals— all very easy. The work environment is light-hearted and fun! Daro has a wonderful full time staff, all locals, who are mostly Spanish speaking and incredibly kind. The other volunteers are from all over with varying levels of Spanish. Hasta luego, the lodge 💛

I don't speak any Spanish, but the whole team went out of their way to make me feel welcomed, used non verbal communication and had be overall so patient while I tried to learn the basics of the language. The work was diverse and light. Daro, Rafa, Jose and the rest of the team are amazing, funny people and I couldn't wish for a better first experience. I made 2 very good friends from Scotland and US, my time there was amazing and I only regret not having done it sooner. The place is amazing, the location is remote and might look scary to get to at first, but it's worth it!

My experience at the lodge was amazing. I spent several weeks in contact with nature, meeting people from other countries, and participating in incredible activities. The hacienda is located in a beautiful and peaceful place. Daro and the staff at the hacienda are amazing, I recommend the lodge to anyone looking for a unique and exciting experience in contact with nature and culture.

The lodge is truly a amazing and memorable place. Alvaro and the team are the coolest yet most hard-working people you will meet, who go above and beyond to welcome you to the family. The tasks differed depending on the day so you weren't bored and the work was never too difficult. I recommend knowing an intermediate level of Spanish prior, as it can be overwhelming at first knowing only basics. However, everyone is lovely and patient enough that the message gets across and you get to learn so much. I really recommend this experience to everyone and I hope to return. Much love!
