We live surrounded by tropical rain forests with hummingbirds and howler monkeys, toucans and tree frogs. We are just across the road from a refreshing waterfall — with other amazing falls just a short hike away — in walking distance to the beach. We have many fruit trees, including mango, star fruit and water apple, as well as lots of wild edibles on the property.
We invite people to come and co-create our community with part-time work exchange.
Most volunteers prefer to give a small contribution in order to work only 4 hours in the heat of the jungle.
We are less a producing entity than a hands-on learning center and have very limited funds, where we depend largely on your voluntarily help and donations*.
Our vision is growing towards sustainability, learning in community and having fun in nature.
We welcome your creative ideas and like to learn from your experience.
We usually require a minimum stay of 2 weeks.

We are seeking self-motivated part-time workers* who are flexible, dependable, creative and efficient. Come with the desire to learn and co-create and with a sense of curiosity and an ability to observe, learn, grow and share.
We ask that you come for at least two weeks and prefer that you stay much longer.
Our work exchange program usually starts on monday morning. We encourage you to come a couple of days before to enjoy our place as a guest, discover the region, meet the community and find out how things work.
Please bring your own gloves, bug & sun protection, a flashlight and sturdy shoes. If you are willing, please email at least a couple of weeks before you leave, to see if you can bring some books, seeds, or other supplies we might need and we will reimburse you for when you arrive.
Thank you for your interest in working together here. We’re looking forward to working with you towards a more sustainable relationship between humans and Mother Earth.
*Part-time workers pay partial costs for 3 healthy meals and much fun.
What else ...
Why does workaway.info allow listings of hosts who charge money?
In developing countries (Where most hosts are involved in charity work or community development) some of our hosts may ask for a small donation to help the host family or charity (often less then 5 dollars per day) Workaway will allows this listing when the donation goes directly to the family or charity and is just to cover the cost of the volunteers stay. (This this will be clearly marked on the host listing).
We will strictly not allow listings posted by agents or “middle men” or projects who we feel are looking to profit from a volunteers stay.

Anyway, Patrick is a great person that know a lot about many things.
Thank you Patrick!
I just wanted to say a big thank you for your loving help and the beautiful time with you.
It was super to meet you - my time with you in the jungle was the cream on the most delicious (workaway) cake.
With Love and Gratitude

The place is a real jewel, in the jungle, close to waterfalls, great people, very quiet usually, not a party hostel. Good for just enjoying the beauty of life. Works include things like cleaning, babysitting, maintainence and/or making
This is very exciting and fairly young project developing a healing community.
Still in the early phase, now setting up the volunteer center (communal house).
For now they only offer hammocks and tent spaces, a simple kitchen (no
