    Description

    We are a small guesthouse over the water on the small island of Bastimentos, province of Bocas Del Toro, Panama. There are 6 rooms here for guests. We also have a scuba shop on the property, that is run as a separate business. Bastimentos is a beautiful island on the Caribbean side of Panama with only about 3000 people living here, there are no cars here just a sidewalk. Bastimentos is a tranquilo place, but if you are looking for more of a party atmosphere, Bocas town is only a 5 minute boat ride away.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Bastimentos is a small island, where English is widely spoken. Most of the island is a national park with luscious jungle and beautiful stretches of beach. Being a small island getting to know people here happens pretty quickly and they will know you even quicker. Most of the locals also speak Spanish as well. The culture and peoples of the Caribbean are different from their countrymen from the mainland, you will come to learn.

    Help

    We welcome help with many aspects of running a small hotel, from help with checking in and checking out guests and just helping maintain the cleanliness of the hotel. Your main responsibility, will be to stay here at night, so that there is always someone here. You will be working with the public here, which can be challenging at times, so a patient and positive personality would a big plus. We also tend to get our fair share of tourists that speak German, so knowledge of that language would be great.
