Hi! We're Olivia and Alfredo, and we run a guesthouse with five private cabanas two blocks from the beach in Puerto Escondido, Mexico. We live on-site and like to keep things interesting for our guests! We give on-site Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, boxing, and Muay Thai classes. We organize surf and kayak trips with clients, hikes and runs, the occasional cooking competition, and lots and lots of musical jam sessions. Olivia is a writer and Alfredo is a musician and martial artist, and we both love cooking, making music, and dancing salsa, and connecting with creative, disciplined, self-motivated individuals. Our ideal workawayers will be goal-oriented and active, and interested in having a good time in Puerto, too! We don't care much about how many hours you spend each day working, so long as what needs to get done, gets done!

You'll be living in a private cabana on our property, most of which was built by us. We're Alfredo (Mexican) & Olivia (Canadian/American), Alfredo's father also lives here, as well as Ebi, our 1.5 year old English Bull Terrier, and Kuma and Tora, our two cats.
We can offer you vocal coaching, writing help, language exchange (Spanish, French, English) and both of us have ample personal experience in personal discipline and growth. Martial arts, meditation, and conscious, intentional living are some of our core values and things we love to share with others. We like to integrate guests and volunteers alike in our activities when there's a good vibe, and share the connections we have here in the middle of a vibrant surf and yoga community.
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE MESSAGING!!
What we need help with is general building, carpentry, concrete, and landscaping skills. Experience with power tools, concrete, superadobe and/or hyperadobe a huge plus, as we have a project in the works for the coming months.
We can always use help with the yard/garden, maintenance and beautification, as well as talented and experienced visual artists, muralists, painters, or crafters to give the place some soul.
Cleaning, aside from general cleaning up after yourself, is taken care of by hired cleaners, so we're NOT looking for housekeeping! Nor are we looking for general hospitality / reception / anyone "willing to learn" how to build and use power tools. Please be ready to tell us what skills you already have, if you can't this probably isn't a good fit for you :)

We have a private cabana available for workawayers. It has one double bed (loft) and one single bed, a desk and chair, a mosquito net, and a fan. The kitchen is shared with us and other guests, as are the bathrooms and yard. I love to cook and usually invite volunteers to a meal, but we don't have a set schedule or defined "X amount of meals per week" system in place yet. We can discuss that and accommodate your preferences (home cooked meals or a food/groceries allowance) should you decide to come and join our crew!
Puerto Escondido is home to one of the best surf breaks in the world, and if you don't know how to surf, there are lots of surf schools to choose from. There are also yoga and meditation classes all over town, lots of clubs and dance venues, live music, colorful markets and a variety of restaurants to choose from. We have a scooter that can possibly be rented for local trips, and there are tons of local buses (colectivos) that can take you all over town for just a few pesos. We're in a very walkable part of town, too, and there are tons of things to do within a 10 minute walk of our place.
