We are 2 Frenchies, living in Nicaragua since 2016. We've been traveling for a long time before that and really fell in love with our place :)
We are living in a very peaceful and nature surrounded place. We love tranquility, good food, good wine and nice talks :)
We are food, nature and music lovers. What we created is an intimate space where most of the time, you will become very close to our guests. We are always trying to know as much as possible from our guests and make their stay a unique experience.
The Casa is our baby and anyone joining will become part of the family!

We are living in a very small and beautiful community. Our staff is 100% Nica, they are lovely people and you could immerse yourself in their culture. If you want to learn or practice spanish, up to you! We are 2 trilingual frenchies, we've been traveling for a long time and we're deeply involved in this project, wich is already working very well. We could show you how to manage a place like this concerning all the areas of the project.
At last, if you love to meet people, that you love the contact of human beeings, the most important cultural exchange of our place is that. Our place is small and intimate and it is very important to us to share a unique experience with our guest. This is how we are not an hotel but a real guesthouse. Sometimes it is hard for us to let people leave :)
We are looking for volunteers to help in our beautiful ecolodge project. We are located on the shore of a crater lake in Nicaragua (Laguna de Apoyo). It is a magical and very peaceful place. We are giving a very personalized attention to our guest. Basically we need help with the general organisation as:
- Welcoming guest
- Interacting with them, make them feel like home
- Helping with tours, taxi information
- Answering email and deal with online bookings
- Teaching English to some members of the staff (optional)
And if you have any competence that can help us further develop the business (web marketing, yoga teaching, etc), that's a strong plus!
And finally it's important to know that we can be very welcoming and generous, but in return we expect our volunteers to get independent pretty fast and take initiatives.
We will provide volunteers with a private room, in a private house in the neighborhood. You will have a private or shared bathroom.
The area we lived in is very green and beautyfull, but you also have small cities and villages at 20-30 minutes max.
There is plenty of activities to do around as Kayak, stand up paddle, snorkeling, Spanish school, volcano hiking, tourism...
We have been working with volunteers from the beginning of the project, and it has always been a very interesting experience, for everyone :)
