The Experience

Help in building and gardening. We'll build a traditional indigenous house to be the guest house. You need to cook your meal and work about 3 hours per day. The work is collective, but if there is only you in the camping maybe you need to work alone by yourself with happiness and wisdom. Architects are also super welcome!

Obrigado pela sua presença e por sua ajuda!! esperamos sua próxima visita para continuar o aprendizado no surf! Alohaa!
