I am a biologist working in the Osa Peninsula to protect monkeys and its forest!
We are a familly of a husband a toddler (4yrs) a dog and me.
We live in a small local community next to Corcovado National Park, beaches, Indigenous Reserves and much more ...
We are kin to get to work with people from around the world
Babysitting / child care
Cooking / shopping
Help with Eco project
Help in the house
Our community is nestled in the forest the beach and Rincón river ... we have an indigenous population near our town as well as a Lodge where people from all over the world come to enjoy nature
I am also a French speaker as I traveled with my family with my parents while they studied their grad school in Switzerland
They will definitely Learn rural life as several farms are around and Spanish is the main language they will hear every day
I love to share my knowledge about nature and Spanish
We would like help with teaching our toddler some English and playing with him and sometimes other kids that come to play with him (max 2-3) kids!
I am a leader in my community so I also need help writing projects in English for the different projects I lead
Volunteers are expected to help in making lunch and dinner and keep clean and tidy the spaces they use
Spanish English French
We have a nice room with its own bathroom
We will normally accept just one helper but if someone with very nice skills writes at the same time and if helpers are fine with sharing a room we will love to have 2 people at the same time
We provide lunch and we could share some dinners but normally they are very light. We encourage our helpers to buy some extra food for dinner in case they can cope with light meals at supper and make their own breakfast.
We love to bake and hopefully you learn lots about our culture in all aspects
We are right next to Corcovado ... a local Lodge offer tours which we could make happen with an excellent discount... river and forest are some blocks away and the beach is at 10 minutes in a motorbike which is the easiest and cheapest way to get to it .. we can provide a bike to move around
As I grew my organization I had the help of several volunteers and always loved sharing time with them. They were always respectful of our house and values
As we have a toddler around we wake up early and bedtime is early as well
We have many spaces where helpers can read and have space for themselves and also enjoy our private space.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Maximum 4-5 hours a day, 5 days a week
