Didn't get much interaction time with host. She came and wasn't around for a few days then went back to her home city. Worked with the manager of the hostel instead. Which made it slightly awkward because if anything was needed you had to go through many channels to get to host and it caused miscommunication. The room was not as pictured, instead I was in a laundry room where employees came in at all times through the day or night. Shift changes happened often without notice. You may be asked to be security due to some of the male guests violating the ladies which is not part of volunteer.

Beautiful inside but it seems like a new place, no hot water, or ac in our living area(laundry room). lots of mosquitoes because of the pool so bring a net. communication and job was not as expected. lots of guys coming in that are sketchy. no locks on doors. not much guidance or constructive support mostly just non accountability and poor management. otherwise the enviroment of Merida is soo beautiful and peaceful. recommend enjoying the food, locals, neighborhood, etc. the kitchen is great and you get to mingle with the 3 pet turtles when you find them walking around ☺️
