It is definitely a place that I highly recommend you to go. The work was super easy, people are nice and trancoso is a beautiful place to be.




When i got there its was the worst day in my life, my boyfriend had just bronken up with me, but then, i started to realize that i was in a awesome place, and everything about it was great. Trancoso is a magic place, and the Jacaranda pousada is a peacefull calming relaxing place to be at, the staff were so friendly and kind to me, I'm thankful for all. I've met so many cool people, that ill carry in my heart for the rest of my life . i hope someday i can go back there. So if you're having doubts about going, dont hesitate, just go!




it was my first experience as a WP and it was very nice. Analice is a good person and makes the jacaranda a peaceful and cool place to be.Trancoso is amazing. I met a lot of nice people, i saw the most beautiful landscapes. definitely is a good place to visit.
About the garden ( my function) is very simple,pick up the falling leaves, water the plants, take the trash out, and some other simple stuff. just be careful with '' the Bahia sun" (haha).




My experience at Pousada Jacarandá was even better than I expected. Analice is a really nice and kind host. The pousada and its vibe are amazing, all the employees are really supportive and helped me every time I needed. I can say it was an unique experience and it will be a pleasure to go back to Pousada Jacarandá to work there again or just to visit the people I knew there. I would recommend Jacarandá for everyone who wants to have an incredible experience in every way.




It was my 1st experience as a WP and it was very nice. Trancoso is an amazing place The Pousada is wounderful!The job is quiet and the owner Analice is friendly and kind as well as James. My recommendation is to improve the volunteers' room and clean it.I was in high season(Revelion) so that everything becomes more difficult. Besides, the room is for 4 persons and most of the month of my staying we were 5p.It would be helpful for the volunteers to be able to use the kitchen at a certain time.I thank Analice for the opportunity to live this experience also Debora and Andi who are very nice.
