The Experience

Children are high energy on the island and need leaders teaching them games or they want more big kids playing soccer. Our hope is to build a skate park late 2016 but that's another position to volunteer. This one here is about enjoying time with the village youngsters!

I had an amazing experience; Shane and Rebecca were wonderful hosts and I couldn't have asked for more. As a volunteer you have the ability to really get to know the locals and be immersed in the culture. The community is overall very kind and welcoming and people are almost always willing to help you out.

We had an awesome time with Shane and Rebecca. They were fantastic hosts and gave you the freedom to choose how you wanted to help around the property or the community. La Colorada is a wonderful place with a very welcoming community and it’s easy to feel involved quickly. Staying here was like having an honest look into how the people of the community live and it was very enjoyable. I would definitely recommend visiting here as there is a lot you can get involved with and it’s also a fun place to hang out. Thanks for everything Guys xxx

Great experience. This was our first stop on our journey and everyone was so warm and nice and very understanding. The environment is incredibly positive and if you are willing to learn you can actually learn a lot from the hosts.

The environment is actually pretty well catered to your comfort and enjoyment while completely emersed in nature and the community.

Highly recommend a stay there🙂🙂🙂

I had a lot of fun on the island! There is a lot of freedom to do what you want and to explore all the opportunities. Shane was a good host and he really shared his property so as a guest you can really make it your home. The people of the community are really nice and will help you with whatever you need. And the nature is beautiful!

Staying on the island with Shane and Rebecca was one of my best travel experiences yet. They're super accommodating and as soon as i arrived felt at home.
As a surfer it was a dream; every day I a huge long white sand beach with A-frame breaks running as far as the eye could see with no one on it. There's also lots to do as well as surfing such as fishing, exploring the island and getting to know the locals.
Highly recommend Santos Marina and Surf Island to any traveller looking to get off the tourist route and experience something different.
