This hostel is in the center of Merida and very near public transportation to go to beaches, ruins, cenotes, etc.The best part about volunteering here is the community. People hangout together and cook for each other often—it feels like a family.The working hours are reasonable and Adrian is open to flexible days and hours. The time of year you come will impact your trip, Merida can get so hot that it’s difficult to go out and do anything. The good news is there’s a pool if you want to spend the day in the hostel. My 3 weeks there were nice.

La Garra Charrúa me recibió muy bien en mi llegada, conocí grandes personas en el equipo. Adrian y Evelyn me apoyaron en mis actividades, agradezco la oportunidad de desarrollar mi aptitudes como Social Manager.
Me sentí muy cómoda con las instalaciones, y con el ambiente de hogar que hay en la casona. Gracias por la experiencia y por hacerme parte de todos los cambios y mejoras que vienen. Éxito.

La Casona es exactamente eso, una casa. Adrián, Evelyn, el staff te hacen sentir como en familia.
Mis tareas estuvieron relacionadas a mis estudios y que se me escuchara fue de un gran valor para mi.
Agradecida de la oportunidad de compartir mis días en Mérida aquí.

Fue mi primer voluntariado y creo yo no pude haber encontrado un lugar y un host mejor. Adrián y el equipo de la Casona Charrúa, te hacen sentir parte de aquella gran familia.
Donde pude aprender muchísimo de cada uno de los colaboradores y un lugar donde, también, pude hacer muchos amigos, de distintas parte del pais y del mundo. Así como la oportunidad de practicar el ingles y da pie el interés hacia otros idiomas y/o destinos.
Totalmente recomendado la Casona Charrúa.
