The shared room is quite small for the number of beds, expect to share it with 4 or more people, if it’s not a problem to you, you’ll enjoy all the rest. The hosts are great and respectful. I really enjoyed my time there! They have a beautiful shala, where I could teach yoga every morning. The breakfast was good and they have a great space where you can cook the other meals. Boipeba is a paradise and it’s perfect to connect with nature. I loved my experience there. Thank you Abaquar family!

Excelente professora de yoga! Os hóspedes e Voluntarios amaram! Muito obrigada!



This was my first volunteering experience. The hostel has an amazing structure between the beach and the mangrove which I found wonderful. Volunteers have access to all common areas which are really nice. Work exchange is very organized, everyone has a clear schedule that distributes activities fair enough. While I was there, there were some structure things that were required at the volunteers room and where not addressed with importance in my opinion, but is something that can be improved. I learned a lot. Boipeba is amazing.
