We are three Canadians (ages 33 - 43) who are opening a new hostel, restaurant and internet Cafe in Cocles on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. We are easy going people who love to connect with people from different cultures and backgrounds. We love music and the beach. Our favourite downtime activity is BBQs on the beach with our friends, and we'd love to have our volunteers join us.
Our property is about 800 metres from the beautiful Caribbean beaches. We have furnished bedrooms, showers and washrooms completed for you to stay in. We need some help with sanding and painting. Once the restaurant/bar/hostel are operational we would like some help with the day to day tasks (guest interaction, laundry, fixing bikes, art projects, cleaning). We have free WiFi for you!

Helping with Tourists
Enjoy the local Caribbean culture and the amazing rainforest setting where you'll see monkeys, sloths and lots of birds. We can offer free bikes so you visit the beautiful local beaches and wildlife reserves.
For now (August and September) we need help with painting, sanding, varnishing, cleaning, weeding. As of October the tasks will change to include fixing bikes, checking out guests, interacting with hostel guests, laundry and cleaning.
You will have a comfortable single bed in a dorm room that sleeps up to 4. Shared washroom and kitchen. The common area is going through construction but still provides a great space for chilling in the evening. Your room has a fridge and we will take you to the grocery store to buy your choice of breakfast foods.
I highly recommend checking out Cahuita National Park where you'll see lots of wildlife. We are within a short bike ride of several beautiful beaches, surfing and snorkeling. There is also several jungle waterfalls and some great jungle rivers for SUP.
The nearby town of Puerto Viejo (10 minute bike ride) offers some great dining and nightlife.
