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! 💛🙏

Me fui muy contenta de la finca con nuevos conocimientos y experiencias vividas, la familia de elsi y victor es muy cálida,atenta y amorosa , sus hijos son un amor de personas. El lugar es un paraíso, estas rodeado de mucha naturaleza, encontras frutas por donde camines. Ah y elsi te sirve unos platasos de comida que se notaban que estaban hechos con mucho amor!

Como primer voluntariado fue muy bueno, linda experiencia, aprendí mucho sobre café y otras cuestiones relacionadas a la agricultura. La familia hermosa, atentos y muy amables todxs! Lxs ame. El lugar y el espacio me encanto, muy alejado de la ciudad, muchísima naturaleza y muy verde, lleno de árboles todo, montañas alrededor, muy lindo. Gian siempre presente al momento de necesitar algo o por alguna incomodidad. La verdad que muchas y seguramente vuelva ❤️

La estadía en la finca fue hermosa 😄😄
Llegamos un martes a la noche donde nos recibieron en la casa de Tamborapa Pueblo con café y pan. Al otro día nos pasó a buscar Víctor para ir a la finca. El trayecto tiene un paisaje increíble, rodeado de montañas y diversas plantas . Allí nos recibieron Elsy y sus hijxs, son personas muy cálidas y te hacen sentir parte de la familia.
El trabajo varía según el día y las comidas son abundantes y muy sabrosas. Allí todo el tiempo se está aprendiendo y pasando buenos momentos.
