An amazing experience that i will probably repeat once again. This four weeks have been absolutely amazing and magical, I have met so many amazing people, the city is beautiful, it has amazing and many beaches as well as walking tracks. The team was also amazing. I had a really difficult time leaving Aracy as well as Paraty. The whole team was very welcoming, nice, loving and ready to help. One of my best experiences on my trip. Im gonna miss everyone and also the whole spirit that Paraty brings.

Foi por um curto período mas foi um prazer Ricardo! As portas estarão abertas pra quando você decidir voltar! Um forte abraço e sucesso! Até bem breve



Voluntariar no Aracy foi uma experiência maravilhosa! Estou partindo com um enorme sentimento de gratidão por toda a vivência que esse voluntariado me proporcionou. O Paulo é um anfitrião realmente incrível!!! As tarefas são tranquilas, os horários são respeitados e o hostel é muito bem localizado. Sentirei saudades das risadas e conversas pela cozinha, da comida maravilhosa da Carla, de ouvir a Bruna tocando violão, das idas ao Wagner e de colecionar bandeiras com as meninas... kkk Eu suuuuper recomendo! 💙

A experiência no Aracy Hostel foi muito tranquila e prazerosa. As atividades eram bem divididas e o sistema de rotação de turnos permite uma flexibilidade ótima para aproveitar a cidade e a natureza. O ambiente é ótimo e permite descanso e aconchego.
