    BACKGROUND INFO AND MORE

    Now there are three houses that need love.

    The Santurce house is a typical wooden puertorrican house with a front and a backyard, 3 rooms and a bathroom. Its in Santurce one of the main neighborhoods of San Juan , like 30 minutes walk away from the beach, 15min in a bicycle and 7 min by car.

    It's an old neighborhood the Barriada Figueroa. The Cervecería Corona (Corona Beer Factory) used to be at the beginning of the neighborhood.

    We encourage workaways to be independent.

    If this is your first Workaway experience, the first time that you live abroad or the first time that you are on your own, this workaway maybe not be for you. We want workaways with experience and independent.

    Once you are done with your task you are free to explore, go camping, take a bus to the other side of the island, use the Workaway app to find others Workaways, sleep at the beach, skydive, rent a car to explore the island for 3 days, do whatever you want!
