You Need: Self-motivation. Unlike the other volunteer vacations listed, this is not an organized package. Volunteers need to get themselves to San Andrés Itzapa by their own means, and should have relevant experience (i.e. fixing bikes) along with basic Spanish comprehension. The longer you can stay, the better. ($9 shelter fee every two weeks; mayapedal.org<)
