  • Description

    Description

    This is a vortex of magic and happiness right on the water inside the jungle where you will find raw chocolate, vegan food, fruit forest, organic farming and a place to learn, express and enjoy.
    We are a chocolate factory producing high-quality tree to bar chocolate, a hostel with accommodation next to the lake and inside the jungle, and a smoothie bar and restaurant with delicious vegan food and desserts.

    We are looking for fun, colorful individuals ready to help with this project. We ask for a minimum of 4 weeks, typically 5 days a week, 5 hours per day in exchange for accommodation and 2 free vegan meals a day (breakfast + lunch or dinner).

    We accept volunteers for a minimum period of 1 month, unless there are special circumstances that where discussed upon beforehand.

    We host cacao ceremonies, ecstatic dance, offer daily yoga to our guests and a variety of different workshops.
    We have stand-up paddleboards that are free to use for our volunteers and we encourage our volunteers to attend to our workshops during their time off shift.

    Our kitchen is strictly vegan * We don't allow any animal products in our kitchen and gently ask you to refrain from bringing any to our venue
    There are many restaurants near by walking distance.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We aim to create an environment conducive to creativity and growth, of course, our volunteers will have plenty of opportunities to share their skills and not to mention live in a friendly, healthy, jungle environment.

    Greet our guests with a warm smile while helping them check in and out of the hostel. Another important task of the receptionist is to give our guests a general idea of our vision here, and of course, explain about our delicious chocolate while showing them around.

    Chocolate Host - Local paid staff make all the ice-creams, smoothies, and chocolates in the chocolate factory, as well as cook all the vegan meals in the kitchen, but we're looking for volunteers to assist in giving English chocolate tours to guests to explain how the chocolate is made and give support to the guests and staff.

    Yoga/ Instructor - if you are a yoga instructor, acro-yoga, aerial yoga instructor, ecstatic dance facilitator, contact improv, any teacher of the sorts to hold daily events/classes in our yoga temple to offer to our guests... we are welcoming you! Join our team!

    Gardening - we have a small and nice garden that provides us fresh ingredients for our yummy plates. Stay with us to keep them flourishing! Learn more about permaculture and local vegetables. For earth lovers! Most of the gardening work is done by local paid staff, volunteers interested in permaculture or gardening work might help harvest fruits or vegetables, or pick out weeds occasionally, but nothing physically demanding. But we're open to teach volunteers about what we're growing and how we grow them in the food forest

    Our local employed team includes 15 local employees and 3 people in management positions.

    You are encouraged to practice your Spanish with our local workers! :)
