As soon as I arrived, I felt welcomed as if I was a part of their family. The work is quite laidback and easy, 6 hours a day/5 days a week, working at the bar (taking orders, making drinks, tidying up, stocking etc.) You're chatting with the lovely guests or volunteers most of the time while you're working, on or off shift. The food is amazingggg, the cooks are actual magicians. David and Rosie are incredible hosts, they're always around to help and answer any questions. I know I'll always have a home here at this special spot, I miss everyone so much already!! Be ready to party too ;)

I had a great time, the hours where good not to long, and enough free time. The work variabeld with kitchen and bar work, which was nice. Also its a big volunteer group that all stay long so you will feel like you have a family.

Kamala was one of the nicest places to volunteer.
They create a beautiful familar environment.

There's always some work to do and if you are willing to work well you'll receive some nice extras.
Always recommended.
Will miss Montanita and the crowd here.

Lots of love!
