The Hostel is a laid back hostel located in Jacó Beach, Puntarenas Province.
Jacó Beach is a very popular destination, located only one and a half hours from San José and being one of the most popular surfer destinations, Jacó is a lively destination all year round!
Riva Jaco is located in the heart of the town, and five minutes from la playa! We are a hostel with the capacity of 20 people, and we have three lovely dogs! We are looking for two volunteers to help with day to day maintenance and well-being of the hostel and guests, and in return to stay in our hostel!
Help around the house
Riva Jaco is home to travellers from all over the world! From Costa Ricans, to Europeans, North Americans and everyone in between - you will meet people and can make friends from all over the world.
Our hostel has a great, close-knit and chill atmosphere where we are all a family. By working with us you will be part of our family! If you are a surfer or beach goer, our hostel is ideally located a 5 minute walk from the beach!
We are looking for reliable, friendly, easygoing travellers to join our team at Riva to ensure that the day to day operations of the hostel run smoothly. We require help with:
2) General maintenance (yard work)
3) Checking in and checking out guests
4) Other odd jobs that come up!
You will be staying in a staff's tent-style private room.
There are daily busses to and from San José to Jacó, as well as busses to Playa Hermosa, Puntarenas, and surrounding areas. Jacó is a great, laid-back surfing town, a great place for those who like to relax, go to the beach, or find a good party. There is a mix of Tipo's and travellers/vacation-goers here, and you are sure to meet plenty of good people!
