  • Beschreibung


    Hola! We are a small guesthouse located in Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, Costa Rica steps away from a beautiful black sand beach and a five minute walk to downtown Puerto Viejo. We offer an immersion into nature in a relaxed, laid-back atmosphere. This is an authentic jungle living experience, we regularly have sloths and monkeys in the trees around the house. We have a beautiful garden full of medicinal and edible plants and fresh eggs available from our free roaming chickens.

    We have different work-exchange opportunities throughout the year, sometimes for help with the guesthouse, sometimes for help with pet-sitting. We use work-exchange help from May-August, occasionally at other times of year for short-term exchanges.

    Our work-exchange positions leave plenty of downtime for exploring Puerto Viejo! We are in a great location right on the beach and an easy walk into town. You will have laundry service, all the fresh eggs you can eat, and access to our medicinal and edible garden!
