Staying in this farm was one of the best experiences and volunteer work that I did until now. Victor and his family really welcomed me. You fill part of the family. The work in the farm is very diverse, depending what time of the year you are there, but there is always things to do. Victor is a very peaceful and friendly person that will teach you and explain everything you need to know and with a enormous paciente (he is really a very good person). And you have an extra of going to do some trekking going to waterfalls nearby the farm. I truly truly recommend staying in this farm! 💛🙏

Estar en la Finca del proyeto fue estar en familia (literalmente). Creo que esa mención describe lo linda que fue la experiencia. Don Víctor y doña Elsy te reciben excelente; sus niñas e hijo son agradables también. Aprendí mucho de ellos, las actividades diarias (ligadas al café y caña) y la localidad. El vivir lejos de las grandes ciudades me sirvió para valorar y concientizar sobre nuestro impacto en el mundo y mi propia vida. Se los recomiendo al máximo!!! Solo una precaución: prepararse para los mosquitos con ropa todas maneras, a la semana ya está todo bien. Gracias :)

Mi experiencia fue genial! Toda la familia es increíble, personas muy interesantes, generosas y siempre dispuestas a darte lo mejor de ellos sin pedir nada a cambio! las hijas son muy movidas y con una energía inacabable pero desprenden mucho amor :) Aprendí mucho sobre la cultura local y sobre el estilo de vida de la zona. También aprendí como es llevar una vida prácticamente autosuficiente y a cocinar siempre con productos de proximidad! Me llevo un recuerdo increíble y espero volver algún día. Un lugar muy humilde pero lleno de riqueza. Un abrazo muy fuerte 😍😘
