This was my first place to volunteer in Perú. I recommend it for the warm attitude and understanding of Victor and his family, and the variety of activities. The communication was just in Spanish and helped me in my continuous process of practicing and improving it. This place made me accomplish the dream of working with organic coffee - going through all the steps of processing it. There were various activities almost all days, like it is usually in a family farm - processing cane, constructions, cooking, etc. I was happy with the family sharing the village fiesta, walks, and motorbike class!

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! 💛🙏

Fue una experiencia muy linda, en la Finca si planta un montón de cosas, bananas, mangos, maracuya, tomates, café, caña de azúcar, piña y etc.. es desde ahí que viene su renta, su felicidad de trabajar con lo que aman. Victor y Elci son unos capos, son personas luchadoras, inteligentísimas, que te explica cada detalle del proceso de cada cosa que si cosecha ahí, mil gracias por la enseñanza y por todo el amor que me dieron en esos días que estuve ahí, agradezco a la vida por poner persona como ustedes en mi camino, aprendí mucho a cada día y valoro eso ♥️

La experiencia con la familia Gálvez ha sido genial en todos los aspectos! Tienen una energía muy linda que te transmiten enseguida y te hacen sentir como en casa! Las tareas son llevaderas aunque en cualquier momento si te cansas en exceso no hay problema con descansar, además el lugar es muy natural y bastante apartado de todo✨🫶🏽 Recomiendo mucho ir a visitar a la familia y pasar un tiempo con ellos, yo me llevo muy buena experiencia de vida 💘🌀
