We are Steve & Rhonda, an American couple, living in Bocas del Toro Panama for seven years now. While we have an ATV rental business, a beach bar/restaurant, and a hostel all sharing one beautiful beach front location. we are currently looking for help with reception in the hostel.
Helping with Tourists
Help with Computers / internet
Living in a tourist destination, you will interact with people from all over the world on a daily basis! If you are looking to improve your Spanish skills, you will find ample opportunity for that! You will have the opportunity to make lasting friendships and gain work experience in a fun and exciting place! You will be part of a multifaceted family and we can't wait to meet you!
What we need is simple - just someone that can cover our reception desk from 7 pm - 10 pm.
Most of our guests check in prior to 7 pm, but there is the occasional late arrival.
Other than that, you will may just need to answer questions and provide information to our guests.
For this, we will provide you with a bed in one of our dorm rooms, a large storage locker for safekeeping of your belongings and once a week laundry free of charge.
As a volunteer, your sleeping arrangements will be either in one of the dorms or a loft space that is a bit more private (2 shared), but also not completely finished YET. There is a toilet and shower in each of the dorms- which are quite spacious- and lockers for safe storage or your belongings. There are 2 kitchens - stocked with all the pots, pans, dishes and utensils needed for you and our guests to prepare your own meals.
The hostel is out of town, the taxi costs $3 per person but we do make several trips to town each day and can always give you a lift.
We are right on the beach, the best surfing spots are walking distance from the hostel. Bocas del Toro offers a lot for any taste. Snorkeling, diving, surfing, jungles, caves, hiking, island hopping and much, much more. There are several other islands to explore, each just a short boat ride away - Caranero, Solarte, Bastimientos. Water taxi's range from $1 to $5.
PETS - we do have cats that call our property home.
