I had life time experience in Dragonfly. I'll always be grateful being the part of this amazing family. Everyone is so kind and knowledgeable. Felt like home from the very first day. They'll make sure that you have the best and feel comfortable during your stay. I get to learn lot about housekeeping, farming and food. Also met lot of wonderful interns while I was there.

This experience is great for the right type of person. The host would also benefit greatly to have the right minded type of person who wants to make a difference be part of the internship. It's one thing to go and do the job listed and another thing to go and truely make a difference and an impact on what they are trying to achieve. That being said, I found it to be an enlightening experience. I met great people and left with new knowledge. Be ready for hard work, communal living, and an open mind!

It was my first experience living abroad and choosing Dragonfly was very special!
To come, you need to be prepared to be in the jungle and we are far from the city. but it's Worth. I promise!
I will keep in my heart the great connection made with everyone in this great family.
My gratitude to host Barbara and a warm thanks to manager Anita and our wonderful team of interns
I broke my foot and had to anticipate my return to Brazil, but the support and affection I received was wonderful.
I miss you!

What I've found with everyone I've met at the Dragonfly-- past and present interns-- is that only truly, genuinely good people come to the Dragonfly. The people at the ranch made it all worth while. That being said, it isn't for everyone. It's indoor-outdoor living- so expect no AC, outdoor showers and screened in walls! There are creepy crawlers everywhere, as it is in the middle of a "jungle" and it requires A LOT of hiking as it is a very steep, tough incline to the resident quarters. Organization and direction need a little help. But overall, I loved my time here and hope to keep in touch!

Dragonfly Ranch was a dream come true. Barbara and Anita treated me like I was one of their own. I’ve learned so much from both of them and felt supported and loved the day I got there. This holistic center is so special to me, it helped me get in tune with my spirituality immensely. I worked 4 days a week for 6 hrs and took the Sunday yoga class! I did housekeeping and laundry mostly because I worked there during the busiest season. But there are so many things to do here and such a beautiful place to be in. I will never forget this surreal experience and the people that made it <3
