    Description

    We are a new hostel located close to Red Frog Beach, on Isla Bastimentos, Bocas del Toro.

    We are looking for volunteers to join our current team to help out with a number of projects we have happening here.

    We need help with maintenance and redecorating some new dorm rooms, painting the walls & beds, someone with artistic ability would be a plus, as we would like to add some murals to our walls.

    We are also about to start developing a veggie patch and organic garden, so anyone with basic knowledge about this or just people willing to get their hands a bit dirty would be a great help.

    There may also be opportunity for our volunteers to help with aspects of customer service and possibly also helping out in reception.

    Basically we need volunteers who are open to flexible working hours and a constantly changing environment and also volunteers who will really invest 100% into the work that they do.

    In return we offer free dorm accommodation, x1 free meal a day, and a discount at the on-site restaurant. You will have access to cook & use the kitchen, so bring over groceries before coming over as there is no shop close by.

    In your free time you have lots of options! From beaches, hiking, jungle, wildlife, surfing, snorkelling, swimming, & kayaking. Red Frog beach is a 7min jungle walk away.

    We are really interested in volunteers who will really invest 100% into the work that they do, and who care about the quality of service we can provide to our customers. We need volunteers who are open to flexible working hours and a constantly changing environment.
    1. Painting dorm rooms, hall ways & beds is a main priority at the moment, preparing for peak season November.
    2. And starting the veggie garden, clearing and laying pallets down and planting seeds also
    3. We are also hoping to change the grass area between buildings into a common area, so artistic ideas, creativity & passion into a hostel will be much appreciated.
