    Description

    Our place is a lodge in beautiful Playa Carate, with stunning views of the beach, lagoon and primary rainforest. We are just a few kilometers from the world renowned Corcovado National Park, and have an abundance of wildlife and beautiful scenery all around. Our location is second to none, and the area is incredibly peaceful and therapeutic.

    There are a lot of opportunities for our workawayer to get involved in nature and learn about the incredible and unique ecosystem of the Osa Peninsula! The majority of our staff are Spanish speakers so an excellent opportunity to practice your Spanish skills!

    We are looking for someone to enhance our customer service here at the lodge with our onsite local staff comprising 6~9 full-time employees depending on the season. Therefore fluency in English and experience in hospitality is essential. Main tasks will involve meeting and greeting guests, helping to organize trips and tours, and generally liaising with guests and helping to make their experience memorable.
    Extra help may include guiding wildlife/nature tours and hikes, establishment and maintenance of our organic garden (we want to make this a bigger feature at the lodge and push to produce more food on site for our staff and guests), and helping to involve the guests with our associated activities, e.g. kayaking & boating on our lagoon, birdwatching and crocodile & turtle tours.
    There is also the opportunity for our workawayer to apply any personal skills they have to our experiences! Playing music, giving yoga classes/massage/meditation, teaching English to our staff, cooking speciality dishes etc. etc,
