More suited to a couple or two friends, to keep each other company. Open to all age groups. Plenty of projects do, Gardening, painting,, cooking we are really bored with cooking bring us some culture. We can provide the food, you bring some inspiration. With only a 15 minutes walk along the beach to bars, restaurants, groceries. Banks are a bus ride away. Local markets and great fruit & veggies, a fun way to do the shopping, learn your Spanish, meet the locals. We live a pretty quiet, tranquil lifestyle.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Most of Canoa speaks Spanish so if your looking for Spanish classes, surf lessons, maybe your a great cook, and want to share your skills. We do some charitable work around town if you would like to pitch in that would be great. Helping out at the local bilingual school could be a great way to immerse yourself. Local ab sailing 5 mins away.

    We like our house & pool looking good all year round, so helping us keep the place looking good is the main task. Preparing meals, shopping, gardening, basic painting, general house hold things, pool cleaning, real hard job just swim and skim leaves. Some community volunteer working appreciated, let me know your skill set & we can hook you up with some locals.
