The adventure begins in Panama on Isla de Muertos... the name surprises but there's nothing sinister to it. The island has a long history and archeological artefacts remain. One story goes that, the shape of the island - long and narrow with peaks and dips - looks like a recumbent figure.
There's plenty of life in this slice of tropical paradise that is completely offgrid - no roads, 100% solar powered with pure well water to drink. What I love about this project, is the big part wild animals have in it. On a daily basis you will see monkeys, iguanas, all types of birds, butterflies, spiders and snakes... not for the faint hearted!
During the first 4 months of 2022, we will focus on construction and we would welcome volunteers with experience in installing ceilings, painting and assembling metal structures to build a greenhouse. In May, garden work will begin anew with the onset of the rainy season.
We have couples staying with us in February and March... scratch that our March volunteers have had to cancel... we were hoping to do inside construction works on ceilings involving air ducts and lighting, if you have experience in this then we would like to hear from you under the title MARCH VOLUNTEER. After that, we will be welcoming volunteers once more from end of April through the month of May. The end of the dry season can be extremely hot and with the first rains come the bugs. We hope to start construction on our greenhouse which will involve clearing land, building a retention wall, digging out a ton of dirt, heavy lifting. if you think this works for you, write to me with HEAVY DUTY VOLUNTEER in the headline.
We also enjoy a jungle island living with beaches, sunsets, kayaks, fishing, hiking, birding and exceptional sights, smells and sounds to fill your senses.
We speak English, French and Spanish and would love to tell you all about this project and get you involved in hands on work. We would like to share our experience of living an alternative lifestyle and we are always keen to learn new skills from others.

Round trip transportation to the island from the dock at Tierra de Punta included.
We do not charge a fee for transportation by boat to the island on arrival and departure for the stay and when guests can travel with us at times when we need to go to the mainland.
We are one short hour away from David, close to the Costa RIca border, yet the island sits in the largely uninhabited mangroves, in a natural environment. No people, no cars, no noise. Local residents are howler monkeys, iguanas, anteaters, frogs, spiders, snakes... it's full on and will keep you pretty busy.
You can hike across the island or go kayak fishing. The region of Chiriqui is also home to the highland towns of Boquete, and Volcan where the dormant Baru volcano provides most of the country's produce. A three hour bus ride across the mountain will take you to Bocas del Toro, the Caribbean backpacker destination.
