We are a very easy going family, we love to meet new people and cultures. My husband works in his own solar panel business and I'm a full time mom. My husband loves music and making BBQ, I love reading and enjoying the simple things in life like having a cup of coffee with a friend or spending time together with my family.

I'm from Costa Rica and my husband is from the Netherland, we love meeting new cultures, new people. I can learn you some spanish if you want and/or some Costa Rican kitchen recipes. We live in a small town but in 10 min by car or 20 min by bike you are in the city if you want to go for bigger shopping. You will get a bike to move around.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We are looking for an enthusiastic lady that loves kids and love to play and be creative and proactive with them, that is the most important thing for us, besides that I will need help with some things in the house like cleaning and cooking (the house is not big so cleaning is very easy). Driving is also part of the tasks as my costa Rica driving licence is not longer valid here anymore.
We have a 4 years daughter and a 3 months baby, so bringing our daughter to school, picking her up and making her ready in the morning for school will be also part of the tasks and a good interaction with them is the most important for us that's why if and only if you love kids you are welcome.
My daughter knows some english as my husband and my speak english with each other so we would like to reinforce the english language in my daughter so you will have to speak only english to her.
This host offers a language exchange
We would like our daughter to learn english and I can learn you spanish and/or my husband can learn you dutch
