  • Description


    Workaway note: Please contact this host in Spanish and english.

    Hello my name is Elias and I work as a tour guide for Corcovado National Park, I'm 32 year old.

    My family of 4 brothers have a project for providing information and tours in Corcovado National Park, and the nearby villages in Costa Rica.

    I'm not very organised, and what I want is to create a lodge or cabins for travellers and backpackers, plus to teach and enjoy being with people from around the world.

    I speak English and practice languages, I am athletic and I love quiet and nature. My house is in a town called Palo Seco in the South Osa península, near the town of Puerto Jimenes, on a very attractive farm cultivating coffee, cocoa, coconuts, bananas, avocados, pineapples and more.

    The location and beautiful view allow you to be one with nature.
    Wellcome and pura vida.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Well, in the area where I live the temperature is sometimes cold and sometimes hot, we are now in winter, so boots are recommended. I advise that if you decide to volunteer here, to buy your boots closeby, so you do not have to carry them for too long. There are few mosquitoes and flies.
    I am not a strict person and I love to rest, life is for living and enjoying.

    bueno mi zona donde vivo la temperatura es aveces fría a veces caliente ahora estamos en invierno, por lo cual se recomiendan botas, les aconsejo si andan haciendo voluntariado comprar las botas cerca de donde van, para que no tengas que halar tanto tiempo las un lugar de pocos mosquitos y zancudos,no soy una persona estricta y me encanta descansar , la viva es para vivirla y gozarla.
