For those who are interested in learning or practicing languages , this is an excellent opportunity since we have many customers from all around the world! Our Pousada is also an excellent base for those who want to discover Bahia nature and original culture (Capoeira- school).
We are seeking volunteers to provide excellent customer service. We are looking for volunteers who are fluent in spanish or portugis with a working knowledge of English. Volunteers will receive customers at reception, make them feel at home and provide help if needed during their stay.
