This was the best experience. I felt safe, welcome, and taken care of. I was able to learn a lot about butterflies, Costa Rica, the people, culture, and Spanish. The life here is very good for health and well being. I looked forward to my daily routine every day. The family is very passionate about their work and making sure that the volunteers have a good experience. We visited many view points. The work and rest ratio was perfect. I hope to return to the friends I made and the beautiful mountains of San Ramon.

Living with Alberto and his family has been an amazing experience for me. This is my first Worldpackers position and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn about the beautiful environment in Costa Rica and practice Spanish in an immersive way. I truly have nothing to fault about my time spent learning and working at the farm. I have really learnt so much in the 3 weeks I have been here and have made lifelong friends. I have really grew in confidence so much to volunteer again in the future and would recommend coming here even if it's for a tour of the farm.
