    Description

    Hi viewers, Welcome.
    My beautiful village of Castara resting on the north coast of Tobago where the sun rises in through the mountains and sets upon our beautiful beaches at night.
    We run apartments on one of Castara's beaches, and a restaurant & bar on the other beach - both of which are very popular with tourists, and locals.

    Our apartment hotel is right on the beach, we have 8 apartments. We need help with some different kind of task at our place, depending on what season you arrive.

    Easy, outgoing and relaxed people will find our place most comfortable and pleasurable. We like our volunteers to be open-minded and curious about the Caribbean lifestyle and culture. To have the experience of how island life is like (usually very different from western lifestyle) We like our helpers to stay for at least 3 weeks. You will work with us in the family, some locals and foreign workers. We all work together and help out where ever it is needed. You will also have time off to enjoy our beaches and go on island and boat tours! We are more than happy to show you around.

    We are looking for people for 3 shifts a day from 8 am to 10 pm, sometimes even later depends on the guests' check-in time. workawayers will be available during office time to help guests with their requests, check-in and check-out, and the main thing will be housekeeping, so having experience in this field is defenitely a plus.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    This is a small village - everyone here knows everyone, we are a fishing village but our primary income is tourism. There is a great snorkeling site not too far out from the shore - there is also swimming with the dolphins and a beautifully hidden waterfall. There is also our fish market where you can purchase fresh fish on the spot.
    There are a lot of great restaurants & bars in the village of all different tastes and style. Tobago is a very beautiful place and so are the people here there is a lot to see or if you wish just hang out and chill and enjoy the views.
