    Description

    Hello workawayers! I'm a Canadian that moved in Costa Rica 7 years ago and felt in love with nature. I manage touristic companies (selling adventure tours from home) in the areas of Golfito and the Osa Peninsula. I recently moved on a farm in the Osa Peninsula, bordering the Corcovado National Park. I have many projects in mind!

    Here are some of the construction projects:
    -Finishing the construction of the house
    -Building a greenhouse
    -Building tree platforms
    -Construction of a hanging bridge

    Other work:
    -Doing rain forest trails and maintaining the existing ones
    -Taking nature and wildlife pictures for the social medias
    -Doing texts of the activities offer for the websites

    The companies I manage are Rancho Tropical (specializes in horseback riding), Tropical Escapade (specializes in extreme adventure tours) and Osa Green Travel (specializes in hikes in the Corcovado National Park).

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    On free time, we go on some of the most epic adventures in the area, shoot videos and take photos! I will be identifying medicinal plants, spotting wildlife and talking about the Osa Peninsula history and its natural beauty.
    Everyday you will see wildlife, even while working. Monkeys, coatis, toucans and much more are seen in front of the house frequently.

    Right now, a constructor is what I need the most to be able to operate as soon as possible.
    There will be one or 2 other constructors working with you depending on the work that needs to be done.

    Accommodation

    It is a two storage small cement house in nature. You will have a double bed at the second floor.
    The place is very calm and peaceful, the closest neighbor is about a kilometer away.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The closest bus stop is at 2.5 kilometers from the house (a 25-minute flat walk). Cars can also get up to the property. The closest grocery store at about 5 km (you can take the bicycle to get there), but many fruits and vegetables grow directly on the farm. Otherwise, take a 10-15 minutes bus ride to Puerto Jiménez or La Palma town where you will be able to find everything you need. You can also go to the beach taking the bicycle.

    The place is wild, but perfect for nature and animal lovers. There are basic facilities on the property such as electricity, potable water and phone signal. If you get a sim card (for a few box) you will also have internet.

    There are walking trails in the forest everywhere around.

    Offered on the farm:
    Night tours, hiking trails and from December horseback riding tours. You will be able to do them for free.
