I stayed at the lodge for 3 weeks and had a great time there. It's a beautiful lodge, located in the jungle of Puerto-Viejo. Work was pretty easy and the agreed upon hours were absolutely respected. Gean, the host, made a lot of effort to make me feel welcomed and at home. I definitely would recommend staying there :)

We stayed at the Finca for almost four weeks and it was a wonderful experience. Me and my boyfriend had our own little house in the middle of the rainforest and even had a kitchen and bathroom all to ourselves. We encountered a lot of animals like monkeys, sloths and toucans on the property and felt very connected to nature. Everybody here was absolutely amazing and made us feel at home. Work was easy and we never had to work more than the agreed upon time, sometimes even less. All in all we had a great time and would totally recommend a stay at La the lodge! Thank you for everything :)

The place here is absolutely beautiful and surrounded by nature. We stayed at a small house in the middle of the jungle and had our own kitchen and bathroom. We could see some monkeys and sloths on the property. The work was easy and the agreed upon hours were well respected. All the people here were very welcoming and sweet. They made us feel at home and also helped us to improve our Spanish skills and even taught us a little French. We absolutely recommend the lodge! We had a great time here and sincerely hope that we can come back one day. Thank you for an amazing stay! :)

I volunteered at the lodge for 3 weeks and it was amazing! It is located right in the jungle, I saw so much nature and different animals! I cleaned, helped take care of the animals and cooked breakfast if we had guests. It honestly felt like my home away from home. The room was spacious and comfortable! The host Gean and I became good friends and he is extremely helpful, kind and funny. Us and the other volunteers would often have dinner together and socialise, which really made the experience better! I would recommend hiring a bike or motorcycle so you can see everything in the area :)

I learned a lot during my stay at the lodge, especially Spanish because everyone else spoke only a little English. I'm so grateful though because I learned very quickly! Gean, the host, was very easy to communicate with and good company. He was very attentive to all my needs and helped me get around whenever and wherever I needed. A great host to have for a first experience. I ended my stay earlier than I had promised but he was more than understanding and okay with it.
