The Experience

Puedes ayudarme con pequeños arreglos de la construcción y de la nueva huerta. Los horarios son muy flexibles, dependiendo del trabajo a ser realizado. Es una casa particular, no un hostel, por eso compartimos todo, desde los trabajos hasta las comidas y los quehaceres del día a día de una casa. (Yo les doy alimentos no perecederos para cocinar) La mayor parte del tiempo será para disfrutar, pasear, leer libros, hacer un asado juntos, relajar.

We had a very memorable experience with Luis at his place. For our first volunteer experience we could not ask for any more. Luis was a fantastic host who truly cares about you having a great time and enjoying everything Mendoza has to offer, he was full of suggestions on things to do and places to go to ensure you were never stuck in the house for too long.
He is very open and relaxed in terms of hours he requires from you. I thoroughly enjoyed our time there and feel we have made a good lifelong friend and i look forward to returning to see Luis in the future!
Thanks Luis

Luis is a fantastic host. He is very flexible and fair with the working hours. His main priority is that you enjoy your time in Mendoza which is amazing, and he is always looking for ways in which to improve upon your stay.

He makes you feel welcome and the house has a very good atmosphere. We were able to make beautiful memories with the people we met at the house make new friends at the same time. We learned more about recycling and we’re able to improve our Spanish! We would definitely come back in the future.
Thank you Luis!

I spent 2 weeks at Casa do Viajante. All went well, the working hours are as mentioned, Luis is kind and thoughtful. His pets are adorable. The house is located 20 min by bus from the center of Mendoza City, but his house is near a few bus stops and the access is easy. Luis also helps you to find great activities in Mendoza.
The travelers I met at his were all very good people, a good environment.
Thanks Luis!

A experiência na Casa do Viajero foi muito positiva. Luis é uma pessoa muito acolhedora, gentil, procurando sempre ajudar para que nos sintamos bem na casa. Seu projeto de horta hidropônica é uma resposta positiva sobre as demandas modernas de sustentabilidade e contato com a natureza, mesmo morando em uma cidade. Mendoza tem seus próprios encantos, com uma natureza estupenda e bodegas fantásticas. Foi muito bom estar imerso na cultura argentina por esses dias!

La experiencia en casa de Luis para mi fue muy buena. Se aprende de todo un poco, cosas nuevas y se mejora cada día. Durante mi estadía compartí con chiques de todos lados, yo era el único argentino, y eso ha sido excelente, el intercambio cultural no tiene precio para mi. Sin dudas volveré cuando la huerta ya esté más avanzada. Mejore mi ingles, y portugués. Luis es una persona increíble, piola y buena onda, con la que se puede charlar de todo. Es muy flexible en cuanto a los días y horarios de trabajo por lo que eso lo agradezco mucho. Muchas gracias por esta oportunidad Luis. Un abrazo 🤗
