The Experience

Aquí en la hacienda tenemos una belleza natural sin competencia. Lo único malo es que no sabemos ni tenemos el tiempo de estar tomando fotos y subiendolas a las redes sociales! Si te gusta tomar fotos, videos, y tienes un buen ojo para el Digital Marketing entonces nos encantaria tenerte! Tu dia se pasaría en tomar, editar, y subir fotos y videos a las redes sociales. No espero que te tomaría mucho tiempo.

We had a great stay at the Hacienda! Yoshi was a great host who always made sure we had everything we needed. The staff was very friendly and helpful as well. Would recommend going as a couple or with a friend as you'll be spending time on your own. Also WiFi is not available outside the reception area so make sure to buy data or bring lots of books! :) overall really happy with my stay

Thank you for your visit Felicia and for the good advice for other volunteers! I hope you have a good rest of your trip in Mexico :)

Yoshi was a great host, communicative, friendly and welcoming. He made sure we had everything and helped out when we needed. The staff was really nice as well and it was great chatting with them and have a cultural exchange. They were just as helpful! We would recommend to go with a friend or a partner hence this position requires you to be very independent and you will have to spend a lot of time on your own. Wifi is also only available in the reception so make sure you either buy a Mexican SIM card or bring lots of books! In conclusion, we had a great time and would love to come back.

Thanks for your comments Petronella :) It was a pleasure having you and Felicia at the Hacienda. If you ever visit Mexico and you want to get away from the city you are more than welcome to come visit us again.

The hacienda is full of things to do. This was our first work away, so we did not know what to expect. Joshy's philosophy is to find something to do or ask and take initiative. It works out really great. Joshy is a great host. It's super fun to be around and always willing to make you feel comfortable with what you are doing. They have a beautiful pool, green areas, a soccer field, and a basketball court. (We had a lot of fun playing card games at night, doing a bun fire, and playing soccer with the locals) Like I said, there is a lot to do. Oh, and the staff were great to talk and chill with

It was a pleasure having you two at the Hacienda! You really blended in with the staff and the locals which was very nice. I think everyone here still misses you!

If you're going to do social media here just know there won't be much to do and you are going to spend most of your time alone. Internet is only available in certain areas, bring books to read or something!! The staff was very nice but they all had their own things to do and I really didn't so I was alone and barely spoke to anyone all day. Also I wasn't made aware before hand that they don't provide food on the weekends! I managed to get some when there was extras from events though.

Hi Jorja, I am sorry if you were not really entertained here. As I try to stress to the volunteers, we are in a very remote area of Mexico, with limited internet, and no real nightlife to speak of. Unfortunately, we are also busy with work as you stated. For this reason, we do ask that volunteers take initiative and try to make the most of nature and the surrounding towns on weekends. I do wish we had had more volunteers to hang out with because that definitely affects things.

As for the meals on weekends. Normally the volunteers are not expected for those meals because they have those days off and can go into town or check out other surrounding areas. On the days where you are working (which sometimes is on weekends) of course, we offer the lunch. This is also all in the volunteer guide that I sent you.

I appreciate your honesty and also your time here!

Hey fellow World Packers! I just thoroughly enjoyed a month long visit to the hotel! I helped to bring the main garden back to life and also helped to improve upon the kitchenette and break room for the volunteers by cleaning and painting. The Hacienda itself is vast and stunning....plenty of places to go off with a book,meditate or do some yoga. There is also a farmers market practically in the back in the backyard every Wednesday where one can get fresh fruit and veggies as well as eggs and grains. for 14 pesos you can grab a bus right out front to the actual town of San Fellipe.
