  • Description

    Description

    We have been operating a family owned business on the beautiful Lake Atitlan in Guatemala for more than 30 years. Five years ago we became the ambassador for SUP (Stand-up paddleboard)tours in Guatemala and now currently an affiliate of PIF (paddle into fitness). This is where we introduce and teach locals and International travellers alike the benefits of health and wellness through paddling . We offer tours which are available to individuals and groups of up to 40 participants. Currently located in the heart of Panajachel we partner with various hotels and retreats around the lake. Like most businesses in our area we are dedicated to sustaining and preserving the health of the lake as well as supporting the local Mayan communities. But we also actively collaborate with labor inclusion programs for people with disabilities.







    Our location has a small three bedroom guesthouse. We employ local staff but you may be needed to chip-in and help maintain equipment and the living environment, so a willingness to be flexible with work tasks is a must.

    We’re also interested in people with business skills, marketing and social media skills, and video/photography/drone skills including editing.

    *** CURRENTLY LOOKING FOR *** SUP instructors with experience and good leadership skills. Our instructors will receive a GuestHouse/staff accommodation. Volunteers must be willing to commit minimum 3 month stay.
