I'am the owner, 55 year old, semi retired, Nicaraguan-american. I live year round in the eco lodge, in Rio San Juan, Nicaragua.
My ambition is to protect and preserve the rainforest, we do this by promoting a self sustaining attitude to increase green living and thinking within the community. The lodge has a full running water and electricity supply powered by solar energy. Someof the food we eat is grown in our plantations for example: pineapple, oranges, lemons, herbs, spices, chillies, platanos, coffee beans and more. We have chickens, pigs, and also horses which we use to access the rain forest reserve for work and pleasure.
Our main income is the tourists who come to visit and enjoy our wildlife, they visit for our tarpon fishing, kayaking, horse riding and trekking through the rainforest or simple relaxation. From late April til September is our slow season, some time we dont have any guest at our lodge and is hard on us, we get into survaival mode, I actually need to find what to do to support our place duting those months.

You will work with little supervision, and pretty much be your own boss, but we need for you to do something productive. We want volunteers to help improve the way we do things, to teach our personnel some English and good manners, better way to do things, how to cook some of your meals etc. other thing volunteer may do are: Offering Birding tours or horseback riding tours. Caring for our horses, pig, chicken, cows, dogs. Working in our restaurant as waitress
During our slow season, April until September, Most of the work is in maintenance of the lodge and work on the field in our cacao plantation, or repairing trails and fences. During the slow season we ask volunteer to help pay for their meals, and since we don’t use our diesel electric generator, we depend just on solar, we may not be able to use the fans some time, and probably won´t be able to make ice. Life if hard here in the rain forest, is not a piece of cake. But you can fish as much as you want, use the horses and canoes or kayak.
Room, private bath, the room we don´t use for the tourist
We are located in the rain forest, so be prepare for rain, insect and wild life, we have no supermarket close by, bring your medicine or prescription, boots, rain coat, insect repellent, a pocket knife, book to read etc.
