    Hello , I really would like someone from dec-may , it would be great if you could stay the whole time, or otherwise a month is fine too.

    For this last minute position in November , I am looking for someone form Nov 22 to Dec 6th.

    We are looking for someone who is totally independent, who wants to life in a jungle cabin with a small pool !
    You will be helping with guests, cleaning rooms , sweeping, racking leaves, helping in the kitchen, taking care of dogs and cat ...
    You will be getting a list of chores to do for the 5 hour workday, which you are expected to do on your own… It is mainly general maintenance, cleaning rooms and restaurant area and gardening: weeding, racking, cleaning walls and painting etc. We are there to help if you need it.
    You will be living in a small cabin, surrounded by jungle, with your own kitchen and bathroom and a small pool for you to use.*

    There is very little internet, so you have to be ok with that, but there isinternet now at the school and Solon communal. You can also go to Puerto Jimenez, they have plenty of Internet cafes and there is a collective bus to go there.

    * If the pool house is rented you will have to move to an Aframe hut .


    The volunteer must be very honest and open minded , completely independent, responsible but fun and be able to cope on her/ his own..
    You have to be independent and don’t mind roughing it a bit as we are far from anything
    You will get a welcome food package but then you will have to provide for your own food.

    You have 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....!Watching the monkeys in the morning ...
    It is a great opportunity to spend some time in the Peninsula de Osa, enjoying nature while working a little bit....
    Now, if this is tempting you, or if you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me.

    This a small village, it has a new park opening and is slowly growing to become a tourist destination. It used to be a gold mining town and our place was the famous ( or infamous ) gold miners bar,brothel and jail....the cabinas with private bathrooms are in,what used to be the brothel and the bathroom for the huts are in the ex jail.
    Right now Dos Brazos Del Rio Tigre it is still of the beaten track.

    You can hitch a ride with me when I go to town or get an express (5000 colones ) for getting your food in Jimenez.
    It is one of the best places for birdwatching, jungle/ river walks, swimming... within an hours drive you can go surfing, kayaking, whale watching, zip lining..

    In case there are guests :

    You will have a room on your own, just that sometimes you might need to change the room if it has been reserved and the guesthouse is full.
    When the Little Pool house is not rented you will stay there and have a paradise living in full nature. It is not rented very often...
    You are getting our best accommodation so we give you a welcome food package ( rice, coffee , sugar, milk..,) but then you are on your own for food and have to do your own cooking.
