Vivir la experiencia en Finca Ixobel fue increíble! Tuve la sensación de estar en casa en todo momento. Hice amigos que llevaré para siempre en mis historias. El lugar ofrece todo lo que un viajero necesita: paz, naturaleza, todas las comidas, y lo más importante el cariño y amistad de una gran familia. Saben manejar muy bien con los voluntarios, horarios ordenados y tareas de mucho conocimiento. Nota 10 en todo!
Muchas gracias Petra, Rubén, Luis, Carol y todo el equipo de Finca Ixobel, espero un día volver y vivir de nuevo esa hermosa experiencia ❤🇬🇹

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
