MayAchik is a great place to stay! The staff is super friendly and the town San Juan is charming and safe. The meals are amazing and the dorms are quite comfortable. If you get the chance, definitely stay here!

Working in Mayachik was a good overall experience for me, a place where people can come and chill. There are various tasks where you can help, should it be gardening, building, teaching, cooking, or any other thing! The place has a good vibe and the people working there too, would recommend! (And if you know how to cook, it's definitely a good point)

La experiencia en Mayachik fue hermosa! todos los chicos del hotel son muy amables y dispuestos a ayudarte y enseñarte para que aprendas a hacer las tareas. También abiertos a escucharte para poder generar un buen ambiente de trabajo. El hotel es muy lindo, tranquilo y en conexión real con la naturaleza. Lo recomiendo mucho si buscas un lugar para intercambiar y conectar con la naturaleza y la cultura de San Juan. Muchas gracias Elvia y Evelyn por abrirme las puertas, a Rosmery, Luisa y Britney! Las voy a extrañar! ♥️✨

Estar en Mayachik fue una experiencia increíble, donde pude aprender más de la cultura local, conocer buenas personas y hacer un lindo trabajo! Son todos muy amables y alegres!
Me lastimé el pie el día que iba a empezar a hacer voluntariado, tuve que quedarme un tiempo descansando, haciendo menos movimientos. Pero, todos me recibieron muy bien, me ayudaron y tuve apoyo para recuperarme. Me alegro de haber tenido tanta gente que me ayudó en este momento difícil y que entendieron la situación. ¡Gracias por todo, equipo Mayachik, un lugar y gente que llevo en mi corazón!

Fue una experiencia increíble! Todo el equipo es muy agradable y amable, MayAchik 'me dio una inmersión en la cultura local que nunca olvidaré, tuve mucho trabajo, pero nada más de lo acordado. San Juan es un lugar hermoso, muy tranquilo y no muy turístico. Hice algunos senderos con los chicos del hotel y todos fueron muy divertidos, extrañaré el lugar y la gente!!
