Casa Corteza is a family, Passiano and Elsa are very relax and we felt like home since we arrived. It was a great experience and for sure I recommend. I have no words to say how incredible they are!! Thank you very much for all learning we share!!!

It was an awesome experience. Elsa and Paciano are a really nice couple. My wife and I stayed there for 15 days, and we lived there as a family. We worked together with the host, helping them with the cleaning, doing some amazing woodworking like building tables, beds and fixing benches. The host is always worried about us, checking if we are hydrated, too tired and everything. There's a lot to do there. We had a great time, it was so much fun. We laughed together every day when we were having breakfast, lunch or dinner. The experience was unforgettable and everybody should try it once.

La experiencia en Casa Corteza fue muy positiva. Es un entorno natural estupendo para compaginar las horas de trabajo con el ocio. Hay muchos lugares para visitar, la playa, roca partida, el río, cascadas... Y todo muy cerca de las cabañas.

El trabajo es muy diverso y aprendimos un poco de todo. La comida está deliciosa!

Es una experiencia muy recomendable para aprender sobre varias disciplinas y conectar con la naturaleza y la gente local.
