  • Description


    Located on the beachfront clear waters of Laguna de Apoyo crater lake, our Hotel offers relaxing, tropical & beautiful accommodations nestled in the midst of one of Nicaragua’s most scenic national reserves.

    Volunteers are invited to read and nap on any of the hammocks slung throughout the grounds, lounge by the pool with a drink from our fully-stocked bar, or sun-bathe on our elevated deck before cooling off in one of the most beautiful, unique swimming locations in the world – the now extinct Apoyo Volcano crater lake.

  • Help



    Must of the help required will be in the reception. We are looking for someone (male / female) bilingual (English & Spanish), that can help out taking reservations, answering phone calls in Spanish, greeting arriving guest, answering online reservations and other chores that involve taking care of our guests.
    Spanish is a must, to be able to communicate with the local guest and answering the phone.

    However during the some days of the week the flow of people visiting the hotel is not really big on these months, so the volunteers can help on helping with some hotel maintenance and gardening.
    All type of help is acceptable here, we are really flexible and communinivative to work, and all your ideas are welcome too.

    Please take in consideratin that the
    Minimum length of stay is 4-5 weeks.
