    Availability from: February 22.

    Greetings! :D
    We need help at our property to make it our dream home first, and a hostel! There's lots to be done yet. :)

    We need help to make more rooms and bathrooms, beautiful details like a more beautiful entrance, a rear beautiful garden with vegetables and fruits for all of us and birds, furniture and to construct more sections if possible.

    We already have all the essentials for ourselves, everything is very basic yet, there's a lot still to be done. However, as we have to work a lot and don't have so much time available, we need someone to help at home.

    *****Clarifying notes:
    Guys, we are trying to answer everyone, so please message only if really interested. We are serious people, and many don't answer back after we respond when asked about dates and confirmation.

    Please keep in mind that we are very busy and are not at home most of the time, what we are exchanging with you is mostly a place where you can stay and relax if you would like to enjoy the Volcano and attractions nearby, but we almost cannot socialize nor spend time with you more than maybe once a week. Thank you. :) *****

    You'll have the Arenal Volcano close (you can see it from home).
    The Volcano offers many things:

    Hot Springs:
    There are many natural sulphur hotsprings in Fortuna, all are free to use and open to public. A good oportunity to relax. Just do not submerge your head because sulphur waters also have amebas.

    Hiking Tours and wild life:
    Local Guides offer hiking tours in the jungle around it to see birds, tiny colorful frogs, Sloths, snakes and all what a jungle offers. They also offer tours in ATV's if you want more adventure.

    A Dam Lake:
    If you would like to rent a boat to row in the quiet, you can do it, you can also go fishing.
    They also offer Windsurf lessons on the lake.
    There's also a Church and old town submerged, just in case you would like to dive. haha

    Blue Clear Water Rivers:
    People bath at these rivers, swim, jump, etcetera.

    At home you also have several things to enjoy:
    There's a river 1 block away, where you can bath, and fish. The water is clear and clean.
    You can relax, hear the birds like Macaws and Tucanoes, read, take a walk or ride the bike to the store 2kms away, or just ride the bike in the hidden roads of the farms and villages.
    Also you'll have farm families close that are super kind, you can learn from them how to milk a cow, how to plant some species of trees, or vegetables, share with their children, and learn tips from them to discover the nature around.

    If you want a more relaxed life, surrounded by nature, or get away from the busy noisy city, a farming life,
    ride a bike to the groceries, and do some garden agriculture, while helping someone, this is for you.

    We need someone who be a Happy Go-Lucky, All-Track. COUPLES ARE PREFERRED.
    The followings skills and knowledges are wanted, but not all are required! but preference is given to those who have them, in the following order:

    #1-Construction experience and skills (Preferred but not required).

    #2-Gardening and Farming.

    #3-Furniture manufactury.

    #4. Someone self-started, independent and happy to be alone, who doesn't need to socialize as much nor to be entertained, unafraid to walk 2kms to the store, nor to get hands dirty, who likes nature and solitude, who would be happy planting food to attract birds and butterflies, and for all of us, we would love a beauitful garden, permaculture and similar new things. Most of the property is still grass.

    We also need to start constructing another house. If you can help us design the property and help us construct that would be sweet too! You may even stay in the property and come whenever you want to stay, and make a small place for yourself if you want to stay around a long time.

    You will have a room and bed, 15mbs/s internet if you need to work, electricity, water, etc and 1 meal a day.

    The place is surrounded by nature and farms, there are cows frontdoor, and it's quiet, there's a river a block away where people fish sometimes, swim and bath.
    Birds, like Macaws and Tucanoes, pass by frequently, you can hear them everyday and see them.

    So this means different things: You can relax, share with the nature, enjoy the solitude, meet farmers nearby, etcetera, but this also means that it is not urban, the bus passes every few hours, and the nearest grocery store is 2kms away (you won't have a 7 Eleven around the block, there are no blocks. haha)
    **You will also have a bycicle.** :) The 2 nearest main towns are 4kms away.

    Our home is like 10kms away from the city, from La Fortuna Downtown, the main road where you can get a bus to Fortuna is 4kms away, they pass every 15mins or so, the bus passes by the house every 3 hours or 4.
    If you have a hurry or want to go quickly to Fortuna, a taxi ride is 5$.

    Was noch ...

    We work all day Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays, since early morning. We are almost not home, and just would like someone to help us. :)
    We're home Tuesdays, and Wednesdays mostly, if you could arrive on those days it would be great please, so we can meet each other without rush, welcome you as you deserve, and share.

    There are waterfalls, and hiking around the volcano, these are further, you may take the bus,
    and Fortuna locals can get you a guide if you want to hike or know wildlife areas.
    Frontdoor there are cows, and all around is farming land with sweet potato crops, yam etc.
    If you love nature, farming, a relaxed life, again, this is a great place!
    On your free time you may do gardening and read, the place is very relaxed.

    More info in Google: Chachagua Costa Rica, La Fortuna San Carlos, Volcán Arenal, Lago Arenal, San Ramón de Alajuela, Tilarán.

    Cheers! :)
