The Finca is a great place to be, The people are very nice even with the language barrier. They do everything possible to make you feel at home, they are very helpful with everything.
If like me you don’t like to cook, you should mention this before signing up :)

What an amazing time I had here at the Finca ,from the moment I saw the place on internet I knew I could not go wrong in applying to volunteer here. As always I gave my 100% in working to what was agreeded upon and they would always let me know how much they appreciated it. Owner can get stressed out sometimes as anyone knows if you are an owner, but believe me she has a great heart . The staff always were laughing which complimented the endless birds sounds you hear on the property. My private accommodation was just perfect for me. All in all loved it ,not to mention the great dog s Yes

Fue mi primera experiencia como voluntaria y he pasado súper bien, Petra es una mujer de gran corazón y las chicas de la cocina son unas queridas, la habitación muy cómoda y la mayoría de los trabajos eran de mesera, pues tienen un restaurante muy conocido, he podido ganar propinas, la comida es rica y los panes que hacen en la panadería deliciosos, hay de comer el biscocho de canela y pan de banano. En la finca hay paseos que se pueden hacer sola y con guía, los podemos hacer junto con los huéspedes, si quieres estar conectado con la naturaleza este lugar es perfecto! Gracias por todo!!!

La atencion de petra fue excelente es una gran persona.
Los trabajos a realizar eran simples.
El personal de cocina es muy antipatico nos hicieron sentir toda nuestra estadia muy incomodos y por eso no pudimos completar el minimo requerido.
