We are reopening a hostel / cabinas in Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, Costa Rica. We'd love to get some volunteers here for help with a few reception shifts / week and also some art work, maintenance (mostly painting), gardening and carpenter work if you have some skills to offer :-) The owner has had the popular restaurant/bar onsite for over 8 years now and we just took over the hostel next door in November 2018. There is still a lot of work for us to do but we have a great community with us.
Get in touch with us and join the family!
Hope to see you soon in the jungle,
P.S. Please look at our calendar for availability before writing and put your dates in the subject. We won't answer if we were marked as red (unavailable) on the calendar.
DIY and building projects
Help with Computers/ Internet
You'll get the chance to either improve your spanish or english, depending which one you need to perfect! There is a lot to learn around as well with the people and the wildlife in the area. You can observe many jungle animals right from the property (sloths, monkeys, toucans, etc.). We'll teach you the reception work and how to handle the reservations system and emails.

** WE NEED FUNCTIONAL SPANISH AND ENGLISH. Our clientele is mostly local. Do not apply if you can't communicate at all or can't= handle the phone. **
We are offering you the stay in a 4 people dorm. You'll have access to a communal kitchen to cook and store your food on the property and still have options for dining out around. The main town is a less than 10 minutes bicycle ride from here. Volunteers are allowed to do one load of laundry per week. Full time volunteers (reception) are given bicycles and locks to use during their stay. You are also allowed a free beer or soda from the bar per shift. Volunteers are welcome to borrow snorkel gear at any time.
We are located directly on the main beach road, right where the Cocles Beach begins, in front of the island. You can go there to surf, dip in, and explore the surrounding beaches and jungle path. A lot of activities are offered around. All the main surf schools are right there and you can also rent sea kayaks, paddle boards, etc. The Jaguar Rescue Center is a short bike ride from here.
