    End-of-the-road beauty and nature are in abundance. Our area has big trees, empty beaches, waterfalls and rivers. We are 30 minutes past Cambutal towards the National Park. We began our off-grid adventure by hand-building our beachfront home in 2017. Now, we are constructing a Treehouse! It's 24ft by 24ft with tall trees growing thru the deck. It will serve as a schoolroom for our 3 year old son and a jam room for us.

    UPDATE (SEPTEMBER 2021): We just put the roof on our spectacular treehouse (see new pics)! We will be looking for new workawayers starting in early October. Alvaro will be out of town until November, so during that time, we won't be doing any treehouse construction. Bennison will be looking for someone for companionship, help with Zephyr, gardening, projects around the house, etc. Sept, Oct, and Nov are the rainiest months in Panama, so I am hoping to find someone who is down for adventure and isn't afraid to get wet (at least it's warm!). We live in a remote area and although we try to get into town at least once a week to be social, it helps if you are cool with quiet time and doing your own thing. Nature is next level beautiful during these months so hiking, exploring and going on long beach walks will be fantastic. Let me know if this sounds interesting to you! Extra points for anyone who has experience with solar, generators, boat life, mechanics, home repair, off-grid life and/or is a surfer. Thanks! Looking forward to hearing from you!

    Cambutal community culture is proudly Santeño. Our neighbors are happy to have a chat in Spanish. In dry season (January - April), we have seasonal visitors who surf, fish, explore the river, and enjoy a family day at the beach. It is currently Green Season (May - December) so we see fewer people. We go to Cambutal (30 minutes away) for pizza nite, supply runs and being social.

  • Arbeit


    1 or 2 people needed. 20 hours per week in exchange for accommodations and meals (vegetarian/vegan/meat-eater friendly).

    -Alvaro needs an assistant for treehouse carpentry and construction.
    -Bennison could use help with housework. She also has a crazy goal of putting 1,000 plants in the ground this year.
    -Zephyr needs a companion for beach exploration and adventures to the river.

  • Unterkunft


    Private room in 3 bedroom 2 bath bath staff house. Big kitchen. Spacious living room. Massive oceanview deck with wood slab dining table. New mattresses and furniture. Wifi. 15 minute beachwalk to Treehouse. We are looking for non-smokers who will keep the house clean. You'd need to be cool with some alone-time. A surfer, musician, artist, writer, fisherman, or outdoor enthusiast would do well here. This a wonderful place to un-plug and re-wild.

    Some of our previous Sustainable and Eco-projects include...

    -Alvaro built our breezy surf-view home. He utilized wood, light-weight construction and minimal concrete.
    -He installed our solar panels, marine-grade inverter, charge controller, batteries and home electric. We live completely off-grid.
    -Our WaterFarm captures and stores enough rainwater to last us all year.
    -We got super inspired by Bill Mollison's Permaculture books. We planted fruit trees, made compost, created nutrient-rich swales, and made it a goal to live a sustainable lifestyle.
    -Alvaro made our wood and steel windows and doors.
    -We just built a bridge! It gives us access to the other side of a ravine.
    -Now, we are building a treehouse where our biggest trees grow.

    Satellite internet is our only option. Here on the work site, the signal is good enough for youtube, WhatsApp voice calls, uploading short videos, downloading, etc. Upload/Download speed at staff housing is a bit slower.
