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.

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.
We are looking for a motivated, proactive, and independent traveler to work around 5 hours per day (5 days per week) on a shift basis, in exchange for free accommodation, wifi, free use of laundry, access to the guest kitchen, bicycle and other facilities of the hostel.
The volunteer will help the hostel with receiving guests, promotion, booking tours, taking payments, cleaning, gardening, and perhaps construction and art projects if suitable.

We offer cost price (or sometimes free) tours for volunteer when feasible, and of course a free home in Costa Rica's finest wilderness paradise.
