  • Description


    We are a surf and chill hostel based on the Pacific coast of Guatemala... El Paredon beach.

    The lodge is located in the only surf town in Guatemala, El Paredon, due to its surf consistency, waves all day every day; the perfect place to chill, surf, practice yoga, explore the town and meet new people.

    The idea is to create a fun, energetic atmosphere full of excitement and unforgettable memories, while simultaneously being in harmony with the environment and culture of Guatemala. To create this atmosphere, we are looking for open-minded volunteers who will be a constant positive and valuable contribution to our operational team.

    We look forward to you joining our team.
