Our stay at the host Bacalar was very short due to the poor accommodation we were given . The team was friendly and welcoming, but definitely, communication and organization were lacking . They knew 2 months in advance that we were gonna be here, but they forgot we were coming . The accommodations described were either a dorm room, a tent, or a balinese bed. As the dorms were unavailable, the tent had a hole, soaked mattresses,and a cat living inside, we went with the balinese bed. It was very cramped for two and not quite long enough for to fully stretch out. Tried one night just to see and left

Hola Eve!
Acabo de leer tu reseña. Justamente era esto lo que quería evitarme, fue por eso que a su llegada les mostre el lugar, les conte nuestras actividades les explique absolutamente todo! Incluso INSISTI preguntándoles si les agradaba el plan y las condiciones del espacio porque nosotros tampoco queriamos perder el tiempo a lo que ustedes respondieron muy convencidos que si. El lugar donde se quedaron es perfecto para dos personas con dimensiones estandar. Incluso la gente paga por dormir en ese espacio sin quejarse de nada y la mayoría se quedan por dos o tres semanas.
Tristemente yo no te deje una mala review por irte sin cumplir tu acuerdo por lo que no entiendo a que viene la tuya pero GRACIAS!


No entiendo tampoco porque si no estaban convencidos me dijeron que si y peor aun para dejar una mala review que por si no lo sabias puede cerrarnos definitivamente nuestra pagina y por ende otros viajeros perder la oportunidad de venir a Bacalar y vivir esta experiencia. Creeme que nosotros decidimos abrir este espacio para volutariado por amor a los mochileros!!!! No lo hacemos por dinero... ya que para nosotros es mas barato contratar personal que ofrecerles a ustedes un lugar que podriamos estar vendiendo.... sin embargo lo hacemos de corazón.

Se que no todos tenemos los mismos gustos asi que me quedo satisfecha por aquellos viajeros que se han ido de aquí con el corazon lleno de alegría y gratitud. Por esas personas capaces de apreciar lo realmente bello de la vida es que seguiremos abiertos al voluntariado.

Karen was extremely welcoming and accommodating to me! She trusted me and gave me artistic freedom throughout my stay, and we both had a great amount of respect and kindness towards the other. There were some volunteers that left early for their own reasons, but my personal experience with her was wonderful and I would absolutely come back again. The hostel is located in a perfect spot by the lagoon, where you could watch waves, stars, and all of the wildlife. I developed lasting connections with all the volunteers, and deeply value Karen as a friend as well.

The host Bacalar is such a special place, it felt like living a dream. Bacalar itself has a relax and tender energy, so the Laguna port is. The volunteers I've met here became good friends and the experience was great. About the tasks expect to do the 5 hours and weather here is really warm, important to know before coming. Overall, this is a worth it experience. Thank you Diana, Karen and Miriam for welcoming me :))
