  • Description

    Description

    We're a team of very positive people who loves nature and living by the ocean. Our project is to restore a very let down property to make it a paradise again to escape from the busy world and live tranquilo.

    This is a great place if you want to get away from everything and be one with nature. It is a place where it is very easy to break down bad habits like smoking, drinking, spending too much time on your phone, etc.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    It's really a cure from the modern and busy world.

    We're located in the wild, off the beaten path southern zone of Costa Rica. There is no wifi at the camp so you can really enjoy the present moment, become immersed in the natural paradise around.

    The property receives wild horses, parrots, has a yoga platform in front of the sea and a river to swim a few minutes from the property.

    Approximately 25 hours per week in exchange for accommodation in front of the sea, daily breakfast, all you can drink coconuts, discounted food and drinks, free access to yoga platform, use of kitchen + common space.

    Working hours are in the morning from 7am to 12am, 5 days/week and you have the afternoon off.

    From experience, it is beneficial to wake up early to benefit from the cooler weather in the morning.

    You can rent a surfboard, book a private surf lesson or horseback riding tour ($) during your days off.

    If you've ever dreamed about living / working on the beach for a couple of weeks with a crew of beautiful, fun people, send us a message!

    Hello to all of you dreamers, travellers and free spirits! We have a big project so please understand that we can only accommodate experienced people in their own field.

    Although we treat our volunteers very well and the place is amazing overlooking the pacific ocean and the Osa Peninsula, we're not a labour school and do not have time to teach how to do manual work if you do not have any experience. Only relevant applications will be answered.

    We receive about 5-15 applications per week so, please contact us only if you already have solid experience in one or many of those fields and a strong work ethic:

    - Carpentry (building structures, using power tools, making furniture, restoring ceilings/roofs eaten by termites,);

    - Maintenance (sanding, varnishing, plastering, painting, cleaning);

    - Landscaping & Gardening (mowing the grass using a lawnmower, raking grass & leaves, maintaining flower garden, making a fire to burn branches, collecting and peeling coconuts);

    - Concrete work (transforming a gigantic old pool into a skateboarding bowl), finishing a concrete floor in the common area


    *️️️️*️️️️*️️️️We're currently in need of volunteers from now December so if you are in Costa Rica and looking for a place, contact us with a description of your past working experience and references.*️️️️*️️️️*️️️️
