The Experience

This farm perfectly fits for those who love nature and wants to experiment with living far from the city, in a secluded place with a sustainable living vision and using green energies. We have dogs, cats and chickens, in the surroundings you can find different tropical fruits. In a neighbour place, you can buy organic cheese and eggs. We need help with the trees, building, repairing, painting, farming, and a good attitude to live out-of-the-box.

It was my first time volunteering in Worldpackers, it was an incredible & unforgettable experience. Eddy is a very happy human with a good heart and really nice stories. I really like the energy he creates in the farm. The farm is situated proper on top of a mountain, on one side you have a view of the mountains and the other side is the sea — it’s really the most beautiful places in the world, and each night you’re able to be gifted with the most beautiful sunset you have seen.

hola me encanto estar en la montaña, el trato de Miguel y viviana es súper amoroso la verdad fue muy divertido y una experiencia que recomiendo a todo viajero realizar , te lleva a los tiempos remotos donde uno tenía que ir a cortarse la leña buscar agua y cultivar sus propios alimentos, me encontré con personas muy sabias aprendí mucho sobre su cultura , totalmente recomendado , . los últimos dias tuve la oportunidad de conocer a Eddy , una excelente persona donde tmb me enseñó mucho y establecimos una gran amistad .

Eddy y su familia fueron excelentes anfitriones, dándonos libertad y confiando en nuestro criterio para trabajar y hacer las tareas.
Nuestro trabajo fue dejar más lindo el espacio y la casita de los voluntarios para futuras personas que vengan, así que espero que hayamos dado uno de los primeros pasos en un montón, ya que las ideas del anfitrión son maravillosas y logra transmitir esa motivación.
Recomiendo tener una buena planificación para comprar las comidas, ya que el pueblo queda lejos y no hay transporte público desde la montaña.
