Loved the whole team, always felt part of it. Hotch treated everyone with respect. Learned about the local issues from the locals. It is the place in the region to feel connected to nature anytime. They even made some adjustments so I could be comfortable with my pet. It was a personal lesson on humbleness. There is still a lot of room for changes to be made on the garden so it becomes a great opportunity. The peaceful environment helped me gather my thoughts. The place is ideal for someone who has a mid term proyect, someone who can take the time to make a lasting impact.

En mi experiencia el lugar es mágico se encuentra muy cerca de la laguna y de la playa al mismo tiempo. el equipo de trabajo es maravilloso me parece una experiencia que te ayuda a desarrollar un sentido colaborativo en contacto con la naturaleza, me encuentro muy satisfecha con mi estancia y lo recomiendo altamente ya que es muy bello y hay mucho aprendizaje en este lugar. Gracias por todo!

Realmente las palabras no pueden expresar en su totalidad como fue la tremenda experiencia y de ser parte de la familia el alojamiento. Se transformaron realmente en mi familia en este país. El espacio es mágico y sanador, se potencia junto con la naturaleza el crecimiento personal cada día. Las labores y tareas no son difíciles, es básicamente mantener el espacio como mantendrías tu propio hogar. Conocí personas maravillosas que llevaré siempre en mi corazón.
