The Experience

We practice organic farming, produce coconut oil and natural products here. We also have a reforestation project, an Eco lodge project, and animals. We have a really wide variety of things to do. We have an incredible river with cascades on the property. English is my native language, and all our workers are local Peruvians. Everyone that comes should expect to be treated as a welcomed member of the family.

I lived incredible days in the farm where I could develop my environmental awareness, and I will surely apply them into my daily life from now on. Thomas is surely a really nice host, he does whatever is necessary to make people comfortable and help them to have the best experience as possible in the farm. He is always kind and supportive, he has great social skills then it's really nice to talk to him, he is very smart so you can learn a lot from him. During my staying I had the opportunity to meet his brother and his dog Zoos, both are so kind.

I've had an amazing experience with Thomas. The 2 weeks were flying away. Thomas is building a backpackers/airbnb, but we were building stuff for the volunteershome. We've build 4 new beds, a new table, new cabinets for the kitchen. so a lot of woodwork. The best to do is come up with you're own plan what you want to build and Thomas will help you with that. After working and on the freedays we did loads of fun things. Cliff jumping, swimming in the river, go to a club, explore the jungle. This place is really worth it so go to Thomas!

I spent a week at the Hacienda and had a great time. The Hacienda was a lovely place surrounded by nature. You will meet travelers from all around the world, share everything and make friends for life! We mostly worked on the construction of the living quarters for future volunteers. What I enjoyed most was the daily life as a community and closeness to the nature. Every other day we did cool activities like having a bonfire at the river or cliff jumping at a waterfall. Thomas is a friendly and cool person you can have good conversations with. You really notice that he cares.

Overall this was an interesting experience. I personally prefer the volunteer roles where you are in a group, meeting people from all over the world and can go out and be social. This was all 1 on 1 so if you prefer just working with 1 person you would enjoy this! It's personal preference :) The work is chill and easy, just labelling jars and it was a nice setting to listen to music but it can be repetitive. Was a cool experience to be in the Amazon, if you prefer quiet vibes and volunteering 1:1 you'd really like this, Thomas was super nice.

Rhiannon arrived here in the middle of a crisis in Perú, on the 14 of December. Roads were blocked in the south of Perú and several volunteers trying to come could not get here. Another canceled due to the uncertainty of the situation. It was horrible timing. Things have since calmed down, and four volunteers will be arriving next week. We normally have a broad range of projects to work on but we were short handed at that moment. We have recently completed an additional guest house and now have capacity for 10 volunteers and expect to have a minimum of 5 volunteers here at all times.
Look forward to seeing you again Rhiannon :) and it will certainly be more fun and diverse.



La experiencia fue buena. El lugar es muy lindo, aunque las instalaciones para los voluntarios están un poco sucias y descuidadas. Las labores no son tan pesadas, fue el clima lo que las volvió cansadoras. Creo que el anfitrión podría mejorar su atencion para con los voluntarios, ser mas considerado y comunicativo. Una de las reglas de la hacienda es que se habla español e inglés pero las reglas estaban escritas en inglés y los primeros días se le olvidaba que yo no podía comunicarme y me hablaba en inglés cuando yo solo hablo español. Por el resto de las cosas la experiencia fue muy bonita.
