Ricardo was an amazing host! I felt right at home here, the location is beautiful and perfect for someone who wants to stay closer to nature, right outside of Flores. It was truly a unique experience. I even helped teach English to the local kids which was one of my favorite things in the world. I met lots of locals, learned a lot of Spanish and made friends I will remember forever. :)

My experience with Ricardo was amazing! The schedule was not too fixed, it was easy to communicate with him and I could choose my days off as well. It was my first experience teaching French and I would totally do it again. The guest house is amazing especially the backyard with the view on the Lake. Overall I would recommend this volunteering to anyone who would like to experience the local life and get in touch with nature.

Mi experiencia como voluntaria fue incrible. Ricardo y Lorea son personas muy amables e tranquilas, que te hace sentir realmente como en casa. Siempre dispostos a ayudar, aportáran mucho mi estadia. El pueblo es encantador y el hostel ofrece una vista espectacular del lago, además de un la casa frente al lago. Inicialmente, planeé quedarme solo una semana, pero la experiencia fue tan enriquecedora que me quedé dos semanas. Además, tambien podria mejorar mucho mi español. En las classes los niños siempre están interesados y receptivos. Fue una experiencia enriquecedora en todos los sentidos!

Ricky y Lorea son maravillosos, el voluntariado fue fácil y divertido, enseñar a los niños fue divertido, mejoré mi español y conocí la cultura local. El lugar es maravilloso, limpio, cama cómoda, Rick es súper tranquilo y tiene alma buena, no tengo nada de qué quejarme, me quedaría más tiempo en este paraíso. Muchas gracias al Remate, me gusta mucho el tiempo allí.

La estadía en este voluntario fue muy bonita, el lugar es hermoso y tuve mi propia habitación, donde me sentí muy agosto. Richi es una persona muy tranquila, flexible, ya que te permite organizar las horas de trabajo a tu gusto y muy buena onda! Las tareas a desempeñar son muy fáciles y no alcanzan las horas que dice en la descripción, ya que hay que ocuparse un poco de la limpieza y de preparar las habitaciones si se va o entra algún huésped. El entorno es muy mágico, puedes pasear, nadar en el lago, disfrutar de preciosos atardeceres cada día, visitar Tikal ,etc. Muy recomendable!!
