What a blessing it was to volunteering with Shirley and Yeilin. They open their arms to the volunteers and share their way of life. Everyday, I looked forward to the daily task, delicious healthy meals, and engaging conversation. I highly recommend this place if you looking to connect with nature and learn about permaculture. Deeply touched by this experience!

From the first day on Shirley, Yeilin and Maria made me feel like a part of the family. The provided food is delicious and the work is very manageable. I recommend a basic Spanish knowledge if you want to further improve your Spanish. Definitely recommended! :)

What a great experience. If you want to learn about permaculture, live with a local family and practice your spanish, this is your place! I loved every aspect about it and can highly recommend this place. Yeilin, Shirley and Maria made me feel at home from the first day on and were always super understanding and helpful. What I enjoyed most about this experience was that I got to spend so much time with the family, working in the garden or with the animals, eating and cooking together, ... Anyways you also have a lot of time for yourself, which I mainly used to read in the hammock :)

Muchas gracias Lotti, mucha suerte para ti en tus proyectos.



Gracias a Shirley y Yeilin por estas dos semanas en la finca. Me relajé mucho y lo pase muy bien, aprendí mucho sobre Permacultura, sobre todo escuchando y viendo como ellas trabajan la tierra en su finca. Así como también aprendí sobre cosas de Costa Rica (que tenemos varias similitudes con Chile). Para haber sido mi primera experiencia lo recomiendo 100%, se van a sentir como en casa. Vas a tener mucho tiempo libre, recomiendo llevar algún libro o algo para entretenerte.

Un sitio ideal si quieres desconectar y escapar, aprender de ti y de la naturaleza. Los anfitriones te dan un calor familiar y conectas muy bien con ellos y el entorno. Si eres amante de los animales es tu lugar adecuado
