    It will be reception, hosting and manteinance work in a rotating schedule - 5 days a week. Our reception opens at 7 AM until 10 PM.

    The requirements are:

    21 years old or older.
    Three months minimum stay.
    Fluent English and basic Spanish.
    Smart phone with active WhatsApp (mandatory).
    Some experience with customer service, or reception. The main idea is to make our guests feel welcomed, to answer their questions and to socialize with them.

    We offer helpers 2 yoga classes per week for free and breakfast everyday except for Sundays.
    (About breakfast we are not offering write now as turism is very untable, rates are lower and not all guests reserve with breakfast included. So for the moment we are not offering breakfast, nor tu guests, nor to volunteers. HOPE WE CAN OFFER IT AGAIN AS SOON S POSSIBLE!!!!)

    Monetary compensation is agreed on a 5-6 month basis and paid by the end of the agreement, not before. Paid compensation could be offered from the 4th month on, not for the 1st 3.

    What else ...

    Daylight starts here at 6AM so you have many hours to enjoy the beach, to surf, to do yoga etc. We have a local restaurant right on the corner of the hotel with reasonable prices, or you can use the Hotel kitchen to cook your meals from 11.30 AM until 8.30 pm. The supermarket is located 200 mts. away from the hotel. We have a public bus in town that connects you to the ferry. There is also night life happening, bars, bands playing music or even beach parties. SO much fun to discover.
