  • Beschreibung


    Some months ago we started a lodge in the woods in Siguatepeque, intended as a vacation rental. It is a beautiful stay with magnificent view of some hills full of pines forest, also ideal for long hikes. The area has easy access from the main road CA-5 and has a balneario of pools 5 minute walk away. The project isn't finished yet, so we are aiming to host some workaways who would love to join into some tasks.

    The tasks would depend on the daily progress. But in General are:
    - (Carpentry) cutting wood to the size for making the floor on the cabins. The structure of metal is already in place, so would be basically measuring, cutting and screwing to the frame. Varnishing.
    - (Paint) wall painting indoors white and outdoors in charcoal
    - (Gardening) preparing the land and planting (we can get many trees for reforesting not only our land but the mountain)
    - (Landscaping) someone who has good eye on putting tropical plants in a nice aesthetic way
    - (Plumbing) installing the water collect system from the roofs
    - Handymen people :)

    Most urgent to accommodate would be carpentry experienced for floor staging and an indoor kitchen cabinets.
    The site has no oven, but it has a small stovetop, a proper fireplace, running water (from rain collection or from springs), normal toilets, normal showers (fresh water temperature)

    We are looking for fun people, specially active friendly people who will either enjoy some beers (or snacks) in a night fireplace and the outdoors

    + Minimum stay: 1week

    Meeting point will be in San Pedro Sula

    You will enjoy Central American living, a sunny yard, learn more spanish (we can practice every evening if you ask me and you can practice talking spanish with my family around) and I can recommend you the best spots in the country, if we have time we can go to the waterfalls, lake kayaking or beach together

    In your time off (which will be plenty) you can explore the country, there are nice beaches around (Tela), big rivers (Rio Cangrejal river rafting), close to the wood cabins you will find the waterfalls (Pulhapanzak) and lake Yojoa where you can do kayaking and explore some natural reserves, the Bay Islands (Utila and Water Cay). With me, you can go to some breweries, play card games/board games, netflix, laugh :) drink rum, chill, talk about life or marathon series and definitely craft beers. And if you teach me an awesome local meals from your country, I will thank you so much :D

    Siguatepeque is a newcoming city which is growing at a fast speed recently, the center counts with multiple cafes, small restaurants like forno pizzerias and good food, great supermarkets and lots of lovely spots. The wood cabin site is located in a village called Achiote, 7 minutes drive from the main road and like 12 minute drive to the city center.

    A bus rides down to the center every couple of hours, in the city center there is everything.

    Have been learning German, so if you would help me with some language exchange, that would be amazing.

  • Unterkunft


    Every commodity is in an "in-progress" state as of today. But you would stay in a small lodge with indoor bathroom. A weekly allowance for breakfast will be provided.

    To arrive to the wood cabins area: contact us so we can arrange to either meet in SPS and go together to the lodge site, or we can give you the address and meet there. We need to text about where to meet.
