    For the 2018-2019:
    The guesthouse is located in Dos Brazos del Rio Tigre, on the edge of Corcovado National Park and 13 km from Puerto Jiménez. We are looking for longterm commitment, someone who can stay at least for a month.

    From Sept- Dec 2018 we are closed but we are looking for a volunteer who will sleep here and watch the place and teach basic conversational English to Channy, my husband, keep your room cleaned, do your own cooking.
    I provide the basics ( rice, beans, oil,salt and pepper ...)

    The volunteer must be very honest and open minded , responsible but fun and be able to cope on her/ his own.

    From Dec- April you will have to help with breakfast, welcoming guests and just watching Los Mineros at night.
    Plus help my Costa Ricain husband with learning English. Spanish and English is therefor a must ( it does not have to be perfect but enough for the above activities)...other languages welcome.
    Internet is sporadic and works when ever it wants!
    You would need to love nature,jungle, rivers and time on your own as there is not much else here.There are great hikes around here,lots of beautiful swimming holes in the rivers, nature at its best! Best birdwatching ever....!
    It is a great opportunity to spend some months in the Peninsula de Osa, having fun,enjoying nature while working a little bit....
    Now,if this is tempting you, please don't hesitate to contact me.
    We also have a deck for yoga, meditation or fitness classes... I would love to find someone with whom to exercise every day....!
    Until then.
    Pura Vida
    Suzanna
