Fui muito bem recebida por todos. Don Felipe, o dono, sempre muito preocupado comigo, Francisca, administradora, também. Sempre me perguntavam se estava gostando, se as tarefas estavam muito pesadas e quando ficava sozinha me ligavam sempre para saber se estava bem. O trabalho não é pesado, mas é na montanha. Muita subida e descida ao longo do dia. Estive no verão, é quente e seco, mas tem a piscina pra aproveitar! Um ponto que acho legal falar é que não te dão comida pronta, você faz uma lista do que precisa, eles compram e você cozinha na cabana que é o alojamento. O lugar é incrível!

la experiencia fue increíble 😃 lo he pasado muy bien con compañeros muy buena onda sobretodo Tilo y Francisca, conectado todo con la naturaleza y los trabajos son muy relajados pero en constante movimiento
Me entregaron dónde dormir con sábanas, comida para cualquier hora, implementos para trabar y el horario lo fui viendo yo si trabajaba extra un día y menos otro
El anfitrión Felipe es muy atento y simpático, le falta un poco de organización pero Francisca lo está ayudando en ello, igual siempre acepta nuevas ideas
recomiendo 100% la experiencia pero en invierno hace frío!

Sin duda el lugar es increíble, relajo y conexión con la naturaleza. Un lugar muy hermoso entre las montañas. Tilo y Luis son muy simpáticos, sin embargo, Felipe es un poco desorganizado y cuadrado en sus ideas. La experiencia en sí, increíble, un muy hermoso lugar.

Fue una experiencia única! Realmente logré aprender y conocer mucho de la cultura de las montañas. Don Felipe es realmente una persona muy amable y buena persona. Faviola es una persona muy alegre que puede alegrarte duramente cualquier hora de día y Tilo es un chico muy simpático. Realmente el team de trabajadores puede cambiar la experiencia porque pasas tanto tiempo con ellos que terminas encarrilándote muy fácil. En cuanto a los demás voluntarios que conocí allí fue muy grato. Conócete muy bien con ellos y sin duda fue una de las mejores experiencias que he tenido duramente mucho tiempo.

El lugar es muy bonito, se siente la conexión con la naturaleza, agradezco mucho a Fabi y Tilo que en todo momento fueron muy simpáticos, comprensivos, responsables hacia nuestra estadía.
Lamentablemente el Anfitrión, Felipe es una persona irrespetuosa, bastante prepotente y muy poco profesional, lamentablemente el es quien da las órdenes, comentar que hubo varios días donde no teníamos que comer, además cerró la leñera con llave y la verdad es insoportable el frío sin estufa.
