The Experience

Our Finca (Ranch) offers horseback riding as an activity and we are looking for animal lovers and people with experience working with horses. Horses are the main job, but our farm has many other projects and daily tasks that need attention. We would require some help in other areas such as the restaurant and general maintenance. We are looking for flexible and open minded people willing to be a part of our team.

This was AMAZING. I ended up staying longer cauz i had so much fun. I learned so much Spanish from just working with the people here. They are amazing and I have never laughed harder than at the guest house. Maria was super nice to me and she made sure that i had everything I needed. In every single way this place is so worth visiting!

Loved the other volunteers and my time overall here at La Finca. There were a lot of bugs and ticks so I only recommend if you are a nature person.

The guest house is an amazing place. Very peaceful and perfect little getaway from the city. You can improve your Spanish because staff doesn't speak English. There is so much organic food you can cook, as well as enjoy the nature. You need some time to get used to insects but everything else is amazing.
