    Description

    Hello! last year we still had two hostels in Niicaragua, with the situation we had to close and now we are about to open a new hostel in the heart of San Jose, we are located in the center of the city near museums, art galleries, universities, schools of languages, bars and restaurants and shopping centers. Also a year ago, as a result of the pandemic, we saw the need to strengthen our commitment to ECO and we began to plant organic products on a farm in La Cruz Guanacaste, 20 minutes from the border with Nicaragua, there we have bijagua corn ( indigenous origin) yucca, banana, basil, rosemary, ginger, sunflower microgreens, avocados and the water that we transport from a spring to the hostel in San Jose among other things. For this project we are looking for support to help us maintain this beautiful landscape and very pleasant tranquility. We want to offer volunteering for a minimum of two weeks to young people who are interested in knowing and living the experience of creating a new project with us. I am at your disposal for any question. Greetings

    ...

    Hola! el año pasado todavía teniamos dos hostales en Niicaragua, con la situación tuvimos que cerrar y ahora estamos por abrir un nuevo hostal en el corazón de San Jose, estamos ubicados en el centro de la ciudad cerca de museos, galerias de arte, universidades, escuelas de idiomas, bares y restaurantes y centros comerciales.

    También desde hace un año a raíz de la pandemía vimos la necesidad de hacer mas fuerte nuestro compromiso con lo ECO e iniciamos a sembrar productos orgánicos en una finca en La Cruz Guanacaste, a 20 minutos de la frontera con nicaragua, ahí tenemos maíz bijagua (origen indigena) yuca, platano, albahaca, romero, jengibre, microgreens de girasol, aguacates y el agua que transportamos desde un manantial hasta el hostel en san jose entre otras cosas mas. Para este proyecto estamos buscando apoyo para ayudarnos en el mantenimiento en ese paisaje hermoso y tranquilidad muy agradables.

    Queremos ofrecer voluntariado por un mínimo de dos semanas a jovenes que esten interesados en conocer y vivir la experiencia de crear un nuevo proyecto con nosotros.

    Cualquier pregunta estoy a la orden.

    Saludos

    We speak English and Spanish, but your Spanish skills will definitely improve if you come here! It is a great home base for adventures around the city and really immersing yourself in the language, while not breaking the bank!

    We consistently will need help with reception to welcome guests and make them feel at home when the arrive. At the same time, we are open to all sorts of creative projects that volunteers might have! Want to start a yoga class, great! Like to paint and want to set up near the front desk while you work? Have a better idea for a recycling program? Go for it! We are really open to new ideas, but it is up to you to take initative. We would love it if someone wanted to develop a marketing strategy for facebook (and promote us!) or create a weekly calendar of parties and cultural events happening around the city.


    Siempre vamos a necesitar ayuda con la recepción para dar la bienvenida a los huéspedes y hacer que se sientan como en casa cuando llegue. Al mismo tiempo, estamos abiertos a todo tipo de proyectos creativos que los voluntarios puedan tener! ¿Quieres comenzar una clase de yoga, genial! ¿Te gusta pintar y quieres montar cerca de la recepción mientras trabajas? ¡Bien con nosotros mientras la pintura permanezca en el lienzo! ¿Tiene una mejor idea para un programa de reciclaje? ¡Ve a por ello! Estamos realmente abiertos a nuevas ideas, pero le toca a usted tomar la iniciativa. Nos encantaría que alguien quisiera desarrollar una estrategia de marketing para facebook (y promoviéndonos!) O crear un calendario semanal de fiestas y eventos culturales que ocurren alrededor de la ciudad.
