    Hola amigos! Cómo estás?

    My name is Ariel and together with my son Ramiro we live in a beautiful beach front house in Puerto Viejo in the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. We are both Costaricans born and raised.

    My house is a project, that is a benefit for the local community, as well as an accommodation place for travelers.

    Our house is located in front of the one of the best surfing beaches of Costa Rica. We can help arrange surfing lessons or other water activities or tours.

    I need help with various tasks in the house, such as gardening, cleaning, maintanence, painting walls, social media, reception.

    I have shifts available both in the morning and in the afternoon. You will be helping approximately 20hrs a week.

    Feel free to message me if you have any questions or would you require more information.
