Conocer a José a sido una de las mejores experiencias de mi vida, es un gran ser humano lleno de sabiduría. Su hogar es hermoso, con mucha paz, un lugar lleno de magia para disfrutar de la naturaleza y aprender de él y de quién coincide en su vida, conoce a gente llena de magia, hospitalarios, amorosos y alegres. Es un lugar que queda en mi corazón y recuerdo para siempre y que espero volver a repetir en mi vida.

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.

Los anchos es un lugar mágico, con una energía hermosa, armonía y naturaleza por donde mires. Muchísima variedad de plantas con las que puedes hacer desde aceites hasta tan simples como usarlas en ensalada. Jose es un gran conocedor de la sierra y me ha enseñado muchas cosas, sobre todo permacultura como un todo, como una forma de vida. Esta fue mi primer experiencia en un voluntariado, y creo q no pudo haber sido mejor, aprendí todos los días, conocí gente hermosa. Estoy muy agradecida!
