Hotel Ecologico Finca Ixobel

Volunteering at Finca Ixobel is a great opportunity to meet people from all over and to experience the Guatemalan culture. Practice your spanish or visit the nearby town and mingle with the locals . Enjoy your down time by partaking in our activities such as horseback riding, caving and walks throug the junle and pineforest. We are also in an area with lots to do, Tikal and Flores a nearby as well as Rio Dulce.

We are a family run ecological hotel/guest house in a unique setting of pine forest and jungle, located on 400 acres. We have horses and other animals. Our main attractions are the restaurant, bakery and the hotel/campground. We look for people who can do a variety of chores like help out in the restaurant and hotel. There are always small DYI projects going as well. We also look for people with special talents like social media, animal care and construction. We are in a relaxed environment and easy going.

I couldn’t have asked for more! The finca is a magical place, totally surrounded by nature. I had my own cabin and you can choose from the food they have and cook yourself whatever you want. The hours where a little different from what they said on Worldpackers. In total I was working 36h a week, but I didn’t mind at all because I loved the work environment and the people I was working with.
I got to improve my Spanish a lot, because not many people speak English. They are really nice and are patient with you if your Spanish is not that good yet.
I definitely recommend the Finca!

This experience is very different to what is described on here. 36hrs per week not 30, 1 day off not 2. 3 meals a day is really access to the kitchen and use of SOME things there. We found a note asking us not to eat the apples after we had one. There are rules like only 1 avacado per week etc. Room was the smallest on the property, 2 single beds & when the lower bed was out it filled the floor space & door couldn't open so getting out for toilet etc was a struggle. Not a fair exchange. When we voiced our concerns Maria said she would speak to us again, but disappeared for days instead👎

Realmente la pase muy bien, me sentí muy comodo.
Las cosas claras desde el inicio hizo que no haya malos entendidos y generar un mal clima.
Muy agradable el clima de la gente, siempre dispuestos a ayudarte, mas si tenes algun problema.
Carole y su gente me hicieron sentir como un miembro mas de su gran familia y eso lo voy a agradecer eternamente. Gracias por todo. Quiero volver!

Excelente experiencia sinceramente. Creo que ha sido el mejor lugar que he visitado en mi vida. Uno se enamora del lugar, de la gente, de todo lo que lo conforma. Sinceramente me quedaría para siempre o volvería mil veces.
Las personas son atentas, amables y se preocupan por tu bienestar, la comida es deliciosa, tienes que cocinarla y limpiar tu habitación, pero todo está a la disposición para no complicarte nada.
Todo es organizado, hay una sincronía muy positiva en este lugar. Lo único difícil fue llegar.
Me enamore de todos y de todo. Recomendado
