  • Help


    We look for a minimum 1-month commitment from volunteers in the below tasks...

    To help us to provide an excellent experience to our guests during yoga retreats and hoteling periods through general beautification of the rooms and spaces, meeting & greeting guests. Helping to harvest fruit, vegetables and herbs from our edible garden that go into to our farm to table vegan meals, prepared by our team of creative chefs. Assisting on excursions such as; waterfall hikes, beach and jungle spas when we have these.

    We also look for creative people who have talents that could be put to use on specific projects, yoga practioners and herbalists who wish to deepen their practice.

    The timings of the above shifts will depend on whether we are hosting a retreat or in hoteling mode. But we operate on 7 days on / 4 days off during retreats and 5 days on / 2 days off during hoteling.

    A basic level of spoken Spanish is a strong advantage!

And if you are working a kitchen assistant or front of house shift, then you will be provided with a meal from the kitchen should they be cooking. We are a community so we do like to cook for each other too!
