  • Description


    Three years ago, together with my partner Ceci (and sons Kai & Liam) we took over the administration of a hotel in the small town of Cabuya. After doing some important renovations (which never seem to end!) we are now running it and could use some help!
    The location can´t be beaten, it has an amazing pool in the middle of a tropical jungle right on the beach. It`s a quiet town just 30 min away from Santa Teresa and 6km from Montezuma.

    Great opportunity to share time with locals and be part of a "real" Costa Rican town. Perfect for nature lovers, close to the Cabo Blanco Reserve, beautiful rivers, and a lot of wildlife here at the lodge too! Off the touristy beaten path.
    Best way to improve your Spanish and get to know how the Ticos live in an "off the beaten path" location.
    We are located just 2km away from a surf break in case you´re interested in learning to surf or getting back into it!

  • Help


    We`re looking for motivated individuals that are willing to bring creativity and lots of new ideas. Experience working in hotels/customer service is highly regarded.
    Needing help with customer liaison and helping guests to book tours, check in/check out, coordinating the rooms cleaning plan, etc.

    Intermediate knowledge of Spanish would be a plus as you would be working alongside locals that speak very little English.
