My experience at the eco village was absolutely amazing! I had the time of my life in el Valle and that is thanks to the amazing people I got to know! I spent 5 weeks in the hotel and fell in love with el Valle, it's beautiful beaches, the amazing food and the other volunteers and workers at the hotel. I miss you!!

My experience at the eco village Treehouse has been nothing but a blessing. From day 1 I was taken in like family and always felt safe. The work I was given was social media revamping and just being a helpful hand when it came to breakfast and dinner while also welcoming the guests. From hanging out with the locals and team I would reach out to them to see how else I can be of assistance so I can learn and adapt to their culture. From cooking, practicing Spanish, and exploring the land. If you nature, beautiful beaches, detaching from your phone and adapting to a new culture this is for you.

The communication before I arrived was spotty and not great but once I got there I had a great time. I loved getting to meet other travelers who were staying and connecting with the guests. There are definitely some things that need improvement but overall my experience was fun and I learned a lot.

The Good: - Nancy & Aide (kitchen staff) and the laundry/cleaning/maintenance staff are all amazing . - Property is very pretty & aesthetic. - Great place to unwind/disconnect as there is no Wi-fi & 🌲houses have the bare min in them. - 🚲 available & free. - Beach very close by. The Bad: - Volunteer program is a bit unorganized & onsite leadership can be apathetic towards your experience. One of the two mgrs 👎🏼 overall. After speaking to the owners, I think they are going to make some positive changes to make future WP experiences. Ran out of space so please msg me for more info (:

El valle I miss you. Unfortunately my stay at the treehouse didn't go as expected. I had originally came for social media work but was mistaken as a regular volunteer doing dinner and breakfast tasks. I was to continue doing these tasks without change. But, all in all the place is beautiful and has amazing potential, but I wish the managers went about things differently. The beach is only a 10 minute bike ride away (one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen) and locals will make you feel very welcomed! It's not for everyone though as this area is very remote, no banks, no service
