Variaty of activities
Working on the finca is so attractive because the activities are so varied. There is always something new to learn, to experience, to try out. So a visitor should also be open to new things.
The working hours depend on the season. Roughly speaking, we can say that we work along with the daylight. In the hot season, we have a longer siesta after lunch. One day a week is free of work.
