Cheguei no resort as 23h00 e aguardei 1h00 pois ninguém sabia da minha chegada.
Enfim apareceu um rapaz e uma das recepcionistas falou: - Leva ai suas crianças! (oi ?!?!)
Ele então me falou que eu iria ficar em um quarto aquela noite e amanhã as 8h00 era para comparecer a recepção pois iria falar qual seria meu serviço no Hotel. Acordei cedo e as 7h30 estávamos na recepção. Fiquei na recepção até as 9h30 todos passavam por mim e não falaram nada. O hostel fica a 1km do resort uma casa no meio do Mato, e você divide a cama com 5 pessoas. SP não resolveu nada. Resumidamente isso.

Mahahual es un lugar muy bonito, la playa y los colores del mar son increíbles. Los viajeros que conocí y con quienes compartí hicieron de esta experiencia algo único, la comida de Marisela, las charlas con Tama y las salidas en la noche fueron lo más memorable. El equipo de trabajadores y la buena energía, es lo que me queda de este lugar. Hay bastantes cosas por mejorar, espero que para el futuro sea aún mejor. Gracias por la oportunidad :)

La experiencia en BlueKay fue increíble y Mahahual tiene la playa más hermosa de Quintana Roo. El alojamiento de los voluntarios se queda a 5 minutos de la playa y la comida está rica, los otros voluntarios eran muy buena onda, solo tuvemos un poco de problemas a respecto de la organización de las tareas de los voluntários, mas en general fue una maravillosa experiencia y recomendaría para los otros voluntários.

Mahahual is simply a unique place. Not only for that beautiful beach, the people that you can find there is amazing. BlueKay is a different place and I liked the idea of ​​what the place will be like. Regarding the work, I hope that soon they will improve communication, since sometimes, as a team, we were feeling lost. Choosing a volunteer as leader maybe helps.
Despite this, this place has great potential and the people, volunteers and staff are people that I will never forget. In the end I did not want to leave this beautiful place, Mahahual engages you misteriously.

Mahahual is amazing, peaceful and magically!!. About Blue Kay, I would love to had my tasks more defined. Sometimes looks like nobody knows whats is happening at the hostel with the rest of the team. Also I would like to have the kitchen open to cook my dinner. Just to advise; The things that the host say are FREE OR AT COST, IS NOT TRUE! For example, bicycles, food at the restaurant, drinks, tours, etc. Just to finish, the WIFI is only available at the lobby of the Eco Village. Btw, People you can meet there is awesome!!!
