Nuestra experiencia en the inn fue muy positiva! uno de los lugares en los que me sentí más cómoda. Ricardo y Marina, quienes están a cargo de la posada, son muy copados y flexibles. Guarda do Embaú es un lugar bellísimo, que recomiendo conocer. Tiene rincones naturales maravillosos, y el voluntariado en la posada te permite visitarlos a todos. Si te gusta trabajar con turismo, aprontar todos los servicios para que la gente que va a la posada se sienta cómoda y te gustan los lugares pequeños y con variadas caminatas en la naturaleza, te recomiendo este voluntariado.

Tive uma ótima experiência na pousada na Guarda do Embaú. O anfitrião Ricardo explicou muito bem antes do voluntariado que poderia ter tarefas diversas a serem feitas e apesar de ter tido bastante trabalho, foi tudo dentro do combinado. A estrutura da pousada é grande e a família anfitriã é muito receptiva e divertida. Explorei muito a natureza do lugar, que é um espetáculo!
