This experience was one of the greatest of my life! Definitely a place to reconnect with essentials in the paradise of the island of Guanaja. You will help them in différents kind of tasks and will improve your skills!
Aaron and Mary are really lovely and will make you feel at home, always here to help you and give you some tips. Would recommend this to everybody! Hopefully I will come back in the next few months

Guanaja Backapackers Hostel is a unique place and I can absolutely recommend it to fellow volunteers and travelers. The island setting is just mindblowing in every aspect, Aaron and Mary are very kind and they make sure you have everything what you might need to have a really pleasant experience. The workload is fair and being done your daily tasks you are basically on an island holiday where you can enjoy snorkeling, hiking, roaming in the tropical forest and connecting with nature. Thanks Aaron and Mary ,I wish you all the best!!

So amazing experience! This hostel was the best choice for my first time volunteering. I really felt I was in a place I could call home, so calm and comfortable. It is perfect for old souls who like good music too! Guanaja is full of history. You can know many places there if you are an aventurer.
Aaron is so nice, he know how to make the place awesome. Everyday works you have to help, but they will not feel as a work because you will love the place surrounded by nature, beach and cute animals! I did my photography work too.
Definitely planning to come back! Thanks for everything.

Thanks Aaron for everything, it was fucking awesome experience of my first time volunteering!
The host Arron is a super nice, talkative and funny guy, the only thing you have to do just ask if you don’t really know what to do, and that would be perfect if you have any idea to make this place better.
Also, I was working with two volunteers, they are super outgoing, being so much patient with me and we had so much fun every day!
Anyway, I do enjoy the life in Guanaja and I bet that you would definitely fall in love with this gorgeous island if you are looking for real natural life!

Guanaja backpacker es una experiéncia única, Mary & Aaron te hacen sentir en casa y estan por ti en todo momento, el lugar es mágico, con aguas turquesas y el verde de las colinas. La gente de la isla es muy agradable.
Despertaras cada dia con una sonrisa escuchando las canciones del gran Dic, y
Luna/ Koha/ Cooper/ Max y la pequeña Didi te acompañan en todo momento , no podras aburrirte con ellos.
El trabajo es variado y entretenido, pasan muy rapido las horas.
Recomiendo este voluntariado con Guanaja backpackers al 100% .
