Diego is a really kind and true person. I liked the way he was creating a group with all the volunteers, we shared great experiences and emotions together. I truly connected with nature in the Center, it's a wonderful place and a space where to enter deeper in touch with your soul. I really liked the vegan food, the baths, the chants together, the Pambamesa and the cerimonies. Thank you Diego for opening your sacred space to us, for sharing your true self and permit us to do the same.

Wonderful experience! Diego made us feeling at home, giving us the opportunity to express ourselves. It was not only work, but sharing time and experiences together, focusing on the connection with nature. We spent great days with him and the other volunteers and the place is really a place of peace. Gracias Diego!

Since i can find multiple reasons why you should avoid this place and unfortunately cant find a single reason why you should go there my final advise is to look somewhere else save travels & best wishes Ben

Esta pareja de alemanes estuvieron 2 días y al tercer día decidieron irse de manera inesperada. A mi modo de ver, simplemente ellos buscaron todos los motivos para no tener que admitir que tomaron una mala decisión al pensar que querían destinar tiempo de su viaje a hacer un voluntariado. Son gente sin experiencia en trabajos de la tierra que se dió cuenta que no necesitan de un voluntariado que los ponga en una situación de incomodidad que los saque de sus altos estándares y expectativas de vida. Es una pena encontrar gente tan mal agradecida con la vida y al mismo tiempo creo que son muy injustas sus reseñas.



Unfortunately, I didn't feel comfortable at all. Mainly because of the accommodation. The pictures on the Worldpackers App, doesn't show the bedroom for the volunteers. We had to sleep in an old garden shed. Our bed was a big pallet with a mattress on top. Inside the shed, it was really cold and clammy. Comparing the accommodation with the hard work (mainly digging with crappie tools) and the 15$ per week, didn't feel fair. There wasn't any yoga classes or holistic therapies offered.

I am SO grateful that I experienced the Center. Diego has created such a beautiful space that fosters a connection with nature, others, and above all, yourself. I ended up staying an extra week because I loved it so much. He is an AMAZING vegan cook, and shared his medicinal plants and spiritual ceremonies with us. I learned so much and he helped me meet locals and plan my future travels. It was magical.
