  • Description

    Description

    We are an authentic, off-the-beaten-track hostel and restaurant created to provide an affordable alternative to nationals and travelers in the Osa Peninsula, while also benefiting local families and wildlife through the promotion of responsible tourism. We are a social enterprise and profit from the hostel is donated to the environmental programs of a local NGO. We are also building our very own ecological farm community by the beach, Finca Ganadito, and we need help with producing food, building infrastructure and many other eco-projects at the finca.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Experience in a very rural village, can improve your Spanish, or another language at the hostel. There are many unique community projects going on nearby such as the sea turtle rescue. We have access to some of the most beautiful beaches of Drake Bay and the best surf spot in the area. We offer surf lessons and board rentals.

    The volunteer will help the hostel with receiving guests, promotion, booking tours, taking payments, cleaning, gardening, and perhaps construction and art projects if suitable.
