Great experience with fairly light work. Can sometimes feel a bit unwelcomed but if you put in the effort to be a part of the family and give, they will welcome you. Fun experiences and a great location.

Me quedé con la familia de Erick más que una semana. La familia es muy amable y me hicieron sentir en casa. Además pude mejorar mi español. El trabajo se realiza en tres horas, las tareas no son complicadas y hay tiempo para una pausa. En los tardes estaba libre, a veces fui a explorar el entorno de la casa y disfruté mucho la naturaleza maravillosa ahí. También unas veces salimos al pueblo más cerca para pasar un rato en la playa o hacer compras. Estoy muy agradecida por esta experiencia, tenía conversaciones interesantes con Erick y Samantha y así conocí la vida de una familia la granja.
