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.

I had an amazing experience staying at the beautiful and peaceful ecosardinal! Eddy was an extremely kind and welcoming host and made me feel very comfortable at his place. I enjoyed helping in the farm, specifically harvesting beans and corn and then cooking them over the wood fire stove. While harvesting beans, I had many great conversations with eddy’s father, Miguel about his work on their farm and his philosophy about life.
I also felt very lucky to connect with neighbors, animals, and meet the some of the community. Overall great experience!! PLEASE GO

Eco Sardinal Farm is such a special place! Located in the hills of Sardinal, this place is perfect for connecting to the environment & learning about your impact. It is totally off-grid, and I think it's important that you prepare yourself physically and mentally for that. Bring plenty of power banks and a solar charger if it's important that you stay connected. If you're visiting during the dry season be prepared that there won't be showers and the work will be less like farm work and more like handyman work. Eddy and his partner were so incredibly kind and their animals were so cute

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 .
