    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    As a family run business for the past 30 years and having grown up on this beach, we are completely immersed in the way of life that here. By living off the land in a sustainable manner, we try to encourage a livestile witch has a positive impact on the planet and his people. Plus, being located 30 minutes by boat or a 6 hour hike through the rain forest, we live off the grid. Producing all of our electricity from solar and getting as much food as we can from the ocean and land, we believe in independent living and immersing oneself in nature. You will get the chance to learn how to fish, spearfish, harvest foods(coconut milk, moringa, noni, tumeric, katuk, pineapples, etc...), cook, drive a boat, speak Spanish and much much more.

    You will be staying the the Casa Grande / Bunk House. This serves as our hostel style accommodation, sleeping up to 13 people. It has its own bathroom and hopefully will soon have its own kitchen. If the kitchen is not set up you will have access to the main kitchen. Please refer to our website for pictures of the house.

    There will always be food provided for our volunteers. Sometimes we will not be able to prepare it for them, but there will always be food provided so they can eat properly. Furthermore, we will provide them with the knowledge to harvest from out own gardens or fish in our kayaks. We expect you to be eager about harvesting your own food and learning about all the food that comes form the land.

    What else ...

    Given our geographic location we are perfectly located to explore the jungle and ocean. Either take the horses/hike up to the waterfall or take a kayak out to catch fish for dinner and explore the untouched coastline. There is also a beautiful botanical garden along the beach to explore and discover. Futhermore, there is a soccer field that is used frequently by guests or the staff.
