Gracias por tu linda visita y por la ayuda brindada



En el Hotel me sentí bien recibida desde que llegué. Las tareas son fáciles y el horario es cómodo. Joiner me dió la oportunidad de realizar actividades con gente del pueblo que tenían que ver con el Parque Nacional de Tortuguero, así que puedo decir que fue una linda experiencia!

Gracias por tu visita, gracias por ayudarnos tanto, te recomiendo con los futuros voluntariados



Estoy super contenta con la experiencia, Joiner y Génesis son muy buena gente. Muy amables, respetuosos, generosos, me sentí parte de la familia. Me ayudaron mucho con todo e incluso fuimos unos días juntos a La Fortuna. Me siento muy afortunada por haberlos conocido y haber pasado estas semanas con ellos. Me enseñaron muchas cosas de Costa Rica y cocinamos juntos platos típicos de aqui. Me dio mucha pena despedirme de ellos. Un abrazo enorme!!

Tortugueiro es un pueblito muy bonito y tranquilo. El hotel está muy cerca de la playa y las tareas fueron muy sencillas. Un buen lugar para descansar y practicar español.

Lo recomiendo para quien quiera conocer esta parte de Costa Rica, ya que este voluntariado permite mucho tiempo para conocer el entorno. He quedado sumamente agradecida con ellos
