Amazing local experience!

Considering there was only the homestay, food and a small tour of the village included, we found it was a bit expensive for what we had. Unfortunately, extra activities were not included so we had to pay an extra. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and our host was lovely even though we couldn't communicate with her directly. Aline is a wonderful woman and we were very happy to meet her. She will become a role model for the kids in the village, for sure!!!
