I spent a month in the organization and loved my experience volunteering at La Piramide del Mar. The tasks were very easy and all the volunteers always had fun together while we were working. There were some days we spent bartending on the beach, and those were my favorites. Mati was a great manager, always delegating tasks and keeping us busy. The town is very small, but it was nice to get to know the locals and build a relationship with them, there are very colorful characters in the best way possible. I would recommend this experience to anyone wanting to get away from the city for a bit.

When I first read about this opportunity to paint murals for a restaurant while getting fed and having living accommodations provided it didn't seem real. Until I arrived and got to spend the dream life of painting murals, enjoying amazing food, taking in the beach everyday and connecting with people from all over the world. Everyone was so kind and made me feel like family there. It took all of me not to change my dates to stay longer but I hope whoever fills my spot enjoys it as much as I did.

This experience was the worst I had with Worldpackers. I don't recommend it, I worked like 10 hours a day and according to Worldpackers I only had to work 5 hours. The day I arrived in the morning he let me work from 12pm to 10pm. The volunteering don't agree to the offer from Workdpackers, in the app it says that they have a laundry and breakfast, the breakfast was literally water with oat and there also was no laundry. One day he gave us fruits which were terrible. Moreover, he lied to us with wrong promises, what was really poor.

I enjoyed my time at La Piramide and really loved spending time with the people in the organization. However, I definitely was ready to leave at the end of my 2 week stay and felt that there were some things that could be improved. Be aware that when visiting during the summer, you will experience a lack of water and electricity at times, which will impact the cleanliness in the rooms and bathrooms. Also I felt that the work tasks were not divided very equally as there are some shifts where a lot more is expected of you than other shifts. Overall, would recommend though as the social life was great!

I had a great experience volunteering here!! Mati was an awesome host and Alex and Marco (the cooks!) were so nice. I ended up helping more in the garden than in the kitchen but I really enjoyed it! The hours were more than fair and there was lots of downtime to read and enjoy the beach :) definitely recommend!
