  • Description


    We are a small and cozy guesthouse with only a few rooms located in Costa Rica, 5 minutes away from the San Jose Airport (SJO), owned by Andres, located in the city center. I am the owner. There are a lot of things to do in the area: you have the Central Market, Bajos del Toro Waterfalls, La Paz Waterfalls, Poas Volcano National Park, Zooave Rescue Center, and you have the capital San Jose 20 minutes by bus.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Helping in my small guesthouse, will show you Costa Rican life, will contact you with a lot of people all around the world, also will help you learn/improve your Spanish. Having 3 days off a week will let you travel in Costa Rica, we can arrange nice tours with our contacts around the Country, to learn about our culture, our food and of course about nature.

  • Help


    We need a helper with a 5/2 schedule, meaning helping 5 days and having 2 days off. During days the assistance we need is cleaning the house during the mornings: washing, cleaning, making the beds, basically get the rooms ready, we also need assistance welcoming the guests: process the payments, show them the rooms and also giving them basic and useful information.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    You would have countless options with your time off, Costa Rica is mindblowing, we are a small country, but since we are a "bridge" between North and South America, we have a variety of cultures and nature. To get to the Pacific coast would take you about 2 hours, to get to the Caribbean coast about 4 hours, so traveling around the country is easy and cheap!
