It was amazing! I do engage to local communities, more than expected. The place is calm and cosy, and hosts are very friendly. ÁGUAS the project is situated between two beaches, Farol the project that is crowder than Praia do Sal, an incredible one with natural sea pools.

The project Da the project is a family operated urban permaculture and hostel located right next to the project beach near Salvador. It's filled with a warm, hardworking and welcoming family that worked with me to practice and develop my Portuguese. The stay pretty much required doing chores around the house and garden and keeping the place clean which was meditative in the natural beauty that they have outside their house. The hours were flexible and Iara was always willing to go through their systems. I felt welcomed into the family and comfortable in the environment. I would recommend it for travelers.

Foi um prazer conhecer essa família, as duas crianças alegram o espaço. A família abriu espaço para trocas mostrando sua paixão por capoeira, contaram a história e a cultura da capoeira da Angola. Foi incrível!

A casa amarela, apelido carinhoso do projeto Águas o projeto, foi minha primeira experiência worldpackers e vai ficar pra sempre na memória. Iara, assim como sua família e amigos foram muito acolhedores comigo. Me senti muito em casa, fiz amigos pra vida e tive a oportunidade de aprender coisas novas, como as tarefas relacionadas a compostagem, por exemplo. Foi muito bom também poder cuidar das plantas e dos animais da casa. o projeto tem clima familiar e fica pertinho da praia. =)

Mi experiência en águas de Itaipu fue buena, el trabajo és tranquilo y relajado, cada uno acomoda sua horário a gusto, lá anfitriões proporciona algunos alimentos básicos ademas del desayuno que permitem hacer las refeições mas econômica. El espacio és tranquilo y las acomodações estan muy bien. Iara és una persona atenta y que está aberta al diálogo y las sugerencias. És Un lugar donde volveria.
