I had a really great time at this place. It is an experience, which you definitely can't get everywhere. You are on an island far from everything. In the middle of the nature. The place you stay is very basic which I loved because it feels like you really get to know the Costa Rican life. It was a very nice community with the other travelers and Barbara of course ;) The working hours are not too much and you have a lot of time to read and relax at the beach.

Super fulfilling experience. If you want to unplug for few weeks and living truly on nature's term, this is the spot! I already miss the host Barbara so much :,)

It was a really nice experience at Barbara's and Alex' place! I really liked to be a bit disconnected from the world. The work was fine and various. We had a lot of freetime. But, it would have been good to know, that the transportation is not included to the island.

Wow! What a beautiful place n such lovely friendly people! Barbara was so welcoming and beyond lovely & everyone there was very accommodating. There's so many animals both inside the property and around - in the jungle & beach. The dogs are so friendly, the food (& coffee 😍) was so yummy n love the hammocks on the beach. Work was as described - yard work (raking leaves) & collecting and planting coconuts. In the afternoon we would do beach cleaning. Plenty of free time so bring ur kindle, puzzle books, sudoku etc! & don't forget there's v limited signal so download anything u need. Amazing!!

Such an amazing experience!! Barbara and Alex our hosts were so great and made us feel very welcome. The work was enjoyable and well planned out, and we still had lots of free time to chill at the beach! The food was great also. We got to visit the other islands and do some jungle walks which was super fun, as well aa meet lots of other travellers!
