I was surprised to find out when I arrived that Ricardo was away and would not be at the location for one or two weeks. He didn't communicate anything with me personally; it was relayed to me by Chepe, who works at the property. As no other volunteers were present at the time, I was expected to stay by myself, completely isolated, well off the main road. I was very uncomfortable with this, especially at night. Miscommunications were frequent, and I didn't even spend one hour a day teaching English.

Esta fue mi primer experiencia como voluntaria y no pudo haber tenido más suerte. Ricardo, Olga y Chepe me hicieron sentir en confianza y cómo en casa desde el primer día. Las tareas a realizar son fáciles, considerando si son cosas que en algún momento has realizado por que cansan, pero nada que no se pueda hacer. El único inconveniente del lugar es que solo puedes salir en colectivo y pasa cada hr lleno, pero Ricardo y Chepe siempre se ofrecen a llevarte a la colonia cuando ellos salen. Si quieres relajarte, meditar o tener un espacio tranquilo para trabajar, este alojamiento es ideal.

Fue una experiencia muy positiva para mi. Ricardo, Olga y Chepe son personas muy amables y generosas con buena energía, a quién les gusta mucho la naturaleza. El lugar es increíble : habitacíon muy comoda, alberca grande, cocina... La selva está llena de sorpresas y todos los días se puede observar animales diferentes, comó aves. Es tranquilo y relajante también. El trabajo es por 4 horas y aunque hace mucho calor y hay mosquito, no es muy dificíl. No está muy lejos de Puerto Morelos y de los cenotes con el colectivo, pero es mejor ser un poco independiente. Gracias por todo :)
