Lobitos is a beautiful and interesting place; the people are amazing, the beach and surf are fantastic, the weather is gorgeous and there is plenty to be done. I volunteered with my husband in March 2014, we stayed for 2 weeks in Lobitos with EcoSwell. At the time the guys didn't have their own place so we stayed in a local hostel, which was very nice, and worked with the EcoSwell guys each day. They helped us with translation, introductions, transport and so much more. Our stay was fascinating, informative and we really felt the opportunity to make a difference in Lobitos because these guys really believe in what they are doing and are determined to improve the town for the residents. We were the first volunteers, and didn't know what to expect from EcoSwell or Lobitos, but were not disappointed and have been delighted with the progress that they have made in the time since we were with them. We have kept in touch, and hope to take our family back there one day (I was pregnant when we were there, so would love to return with our daughter!) So, you couldn't hope for a more positive, friendly, relaxed atmosphere, a more beautiful, peaceful location or a more dedicated, enthusiastic team of people to work with. What's holding you back?!
