  • Accommodation


    Accommodation is in tents that should bring volunteers, if you don´t have we could see how to get one. There is a house with kitchen available to volunteers where they can cook breakfast and dinner. The place is amazing with lots of forest to walk and incredible views.

    El alojamiento es en carpa que deben traer los voluntarios, en caso de no tener se podría ver la manera de conseguir una. Hay una casa con cocina a disposición de los voluntarios, donde podrán cocinarse el desayuno y la cena. El lugar es increíble, con mucho bosque para caminar e increíbles vistas.
