There are three price plans for this ARCAS project:

  • Plan Mochilero: $200 (first week and each consecutive week). This is for volunteers who do not require a pick up and are more confident finding their own way to the center. This does not include a reservation, and space at the center is not guaranteed.

 

**There is an additional deposit of Q300 (About $40) for your room key and bed sheets, which you will pay on site, and will be returned upon your departure.
