  • What else ...

    What else ...

    It is such a nice place for a traveler/foreigner to stay for a while. It's not a very big tourist place, you get to feel at home easily and will get know people fast. Lots of people get stuck here :)
    There are beginner waves to surf, yoga classes, Spanish classes, Gym and lots of nice places to hang out, eat and drink.

    It's important that the volunteer has a good time, but at the same time when helping out at the hostel he/she knows responsibilities.
