    AT THE MOMENT WE NEED HELP WITH CARPENTRY, SIMPLE CONSTRUCTION AND GARDENING. IF SOMEONE COULD HELP TEACH US SPANISH AS WELL THAT WOULD BE PERFECT.
    WE WOULD IDEALLY PREFER A COUPLE OR TWO FRIENDS TRAVELING TOGETHER
    Stays of a month or more will be prioritised.


    Hi. we're a family of 3 and we're building a home-stay in the hills behind Punta Uva, Costa Rica. It's a couple of km away from civilization in the luxurious jungle with stunning views over to Panama. It's all off grid in a tranquil paradise. If you're looking to get out of it all and really come down to nature then this might be just the place for you. We are surrounded by beautiful jungle where you can relax and enjoy the tranquility so if you're looking for parties, bars and socializing then this probably is not the right place for you. We started building this project from scratch about three year ago. So if you have the same idea for the future or just want to see if and how something like this can be done, and gain some insight this might be a very interesting experience for you.
    We're looking forward to welcoming you to our hide away and getting to know you.

    Get an experience of starting a life off the grid and escaping this sometimes crazy world where you get back to nature and just be yourself. If you want to get a taste of off-grid living or are interested in doing something similar and need some experience or see if it is something for you then this is the chance.

    Arbeit

    We need help with general building, garden work and work around the house. We would really like someone with carpentry skills, general DIY and gardening: We would work together on various projects like basic furniture building, planting fruit trees, small building projects. The work here in the tropical climate can sometimes be quite demanding and you should have a good level of fitness.
    And please be aware that we're completely off-grid here so we all have to use water and electricity sparingly, which is not a bad experience as it makes you aware of how precious these essential but limited resources are.

    We've built a guest house with a beautiful view into the jungle. You would have this to yourself. We do not provide meals but you do have a fully equipped kitchen to cook something up yourself and a very nice house in which to stay.

    The beaches on the Carribean coast are among the most beautiful in the world, offering surfing and snorkeling. We have some beautiful waterfalls in the area near Bribri. The nearest beach is Punta Uva, about 30 minute drive away. Walks around the area are truly breathtaking with an abundance of wildlife. The Sixaola river, the border to Panama is a few km walk away. The next civilization is a few km away. We're NOT within walking distance to the beaches but nearer the Sixaola river near Paraiso. The public bus to Puerto Viejo takes about an hour from the main road which is a 25 minute walk. We have a car and drive into town for supplies once a week. Although the transport situation is a bit primitive, it does teach you to be happy with what you've got i.e good healthy legs ;-) and slow down and appreciate the moment and space on your way to wherever your going.
