Mabel and Jennifer (the hosts) were really the best, very helpful, kind and welcoming. The tasks varied according to each person's wishes and abilities. We didn't have much crafting experience and they were very helpful in learning how to use the tools. Don't be afraid of insects, there are lots of them around!

A big thank you to Jennifer and Mabel ! This was a great experience where I learned a lot. We felt very welcomed by the hosts and the other volunteers. The tasks are various and adapted to everyone's abilities. I would recommend this experience to everyone, just be prepared for the nature and the bugs 😉

Jennifer and Mabel were so nice, and very patient with my lack of Spanish and just being new to the jungle environment. Their place is beautiful and there is a lot to experience here. They feed you very well and the work is fun. The work can be hard only because of the heat, but it's only three hours a day so it goes by fairly quick. There were only three other volunteers when I was here so it was pretty quiet and peaceful, I'd recommend bringing a book or something to pass the time.
