  • Description


    Come stay with us in the lush jungle of Costa Rica's Caribbean Coast in the town of Puerto Viejo. We are a young couple in the beginning stages of 3 Acre Eco-Resort/exotic fruit and flower farm on Beach Break, the main surf beach in the area,looking for preferably a couple or couple of friends to come lend a hand around the resort while learning many aspects of building tiny homes from rustic material, farming fruits,flowers,some veggies, Free Roaming egg chickens and helping out with the dogs ( we have Mastiffs... warning for anyone who isnt fond of huge dogs & a bonus for anyone that is). Although we will be working, we will also have instruments for bonfire jams, spin fire,do yoga, have aerial silks, and will have more than enough time to surf, snorkel or just hang by the river and enjoy the sun.You will have to rent bikes and being here in the jungle can be very physically active but you will be rewarded by living alongside toucans, parrots, sloths, monkeys,iguanas and dart frogs, overlooking the Caribbean everyday. Accomodations will be a big private room that will sleep 2-3 comfortably and a shared kitchen & bath in our home. We expect 4 hours of work, 5 days a week and shifts will rotate morning or afternoon. We do not provide meals but will seasonally have fruit and eggs....that being said, we can be very generous and after big projects or as the feeling takes us we will cook and fiesta. If you are a easygoing but hardworking person that wants to learn and experience the pure jungle, send us a message and be sure to let us know what month you would be interested in starting.
