Working with Nando and Karen has been a great
learning experience on MANY different levels.
I would recommend that volunteers who select this work away be volunteers who are ready to WORK and to LEARN. This is a volunteer where you are expected to work on a project to project basis – but Karen & Nando are fair with their programme and gave ample time for us to visit surrounding touristic sights such as Playa Rosada and Montanita. The equipment at this worksite is phenomenal,
There is a bicycle, full kitchen, bathroom, treehouse and camping area all completely for the use of the volunteers. The work I did included riding a caballo into the manglar to cut bamboo with Hector and construct the bathroom outside next to the treehouse. We also went prawning for 2.5 hours with Hector up the river which was awesome. Thanks for that one Hector!!! Be prepared for the wake up whistle which Nando will rehearse every morning at 7.30 to wake the volunteers. Thanks for the experience!
