I had an amazing experience at the outdoor Center. Everyone treated me like family. It's good to practise your Spanish and to teach them some English.

The outdoor center it selfs is a building project. So you can be part of the project and see how it grows. The place is beautifull in the nature. Far away from everything wich is sometimes when you want to do something else a difficult point but you can walk to the small town (where you can buy food) or ask for a kayak in agreement and train your skills. The staff is very kind and the work very light if you get the same hours I had make sure you have a book in the office :p Doña Mercedes is a fabulous women where you can talk with and who helps with everything you need. Good luck

The place is really nice and we had great times! There was only a misundestanding at the begining, in their profile they said "ingredients will be given but you have to cook", but when we arrived they said that there was a mistake and we had to buy our food. 2 days later, the owner gave us some beans and rice to cook. We were supposed to work 4 hrs a day, but we were working 6 or 8.
In the other hand, the staff is really nice! We hang out with all of them. And we had great times! We got a rafting tour for free!
Another thing, u have to learn how to handle with the owner, he's a bit grumpy.

This place is full of peace, charming people, the reception guy is very kind and friendly. The weather is great. You can practice your English or another language because the outdoor recieve people from every part of the world.
I was there on 23th and on christimas eve, and the family was really awesome they adopted me instantly, around the outdoor center is located a peaceful town, you could go wallking,
I took the shift from 16:00 to 20:00 is not a lot of work. I will recommend to the travelers to take their camp tents or ask photos of your accommodation.
