It was my first Worldpackers experience, and it was amazing! It’s a place in the middle of the mountains where your soul can connect with nature. There’s not much work pressure and you are free to do whatever being there with the rivers and animals. Jose is really nice and just wants you to be happy Living the moment.
A magical place.

Had a great experience at los anchos, very relaxed and chilled environment. Jose is a friendly good guy who is very knowledgeable and easy going, cooking nice meals and is always happy to help. Plenty of free time to yourself in a very relaxed environment, look forward to working with him again one day.

It was awsome, the place is stunning in the middle of a natural park in Spain
There is a small rural museum about life in the country. I learned a lot about self suficiency. I met incredible people and the owner is very nice and he knows a lot of things he likes to share. I was living in my own little house and I was free to do what I wanted when I wasn't helping
It was a great experience !
