  • Description


    Hello, we are Martin and Celina an Italian Argentinian couple with 3 fantastic sons Franco 24 Galo 22 and Isabella 20. A Vet and a Psychology ex-managers travellers adventurers entrepreneurs. Celina love cinema, travel and good books, I love rugby, motorcycles and fishing I'm also a certificated Fly casting instructor.
    We want volunteers because we love the work away experience!! first as work awayers and now as HOSTs
    After travelling in more than 60 countries we discovered Puerto Viejo and felt in love, Caribbean style, wildlife, jungle, international community, fantastic beaches, surf and more...So we bought a 5 acres cacao farm and here we are building what is becoming the best Glamping Site in Costa Rica. A very nice "Finca" with Jungle and hills pleanty of place for relaxing time.
    We need some help to build our dream, many tasks to do, building painting restoring, gardening nothing difficult or dangerous.
    Working time will be flexible morning or afternoon both are ok. Here sunrise is 5:30 and sunset 6:00 PM !! so to avoid the heat a schedule 7:00 -12:00 8 - 13 is perfect, we stop at lunch and you have all afternoon free!
    You will be in a room for you or to share if there is other volunteer.

    IMPORTANT UPDATE: We don't supply food and the cost of the food anymore as in the past, so you will be free to eat whatever you want or need, this policy is to match every volunteer alimentary habits, you can be vegan, vegetarian, celiac, eat meat etc etc also drink more beer than us and that is fine!! . Anyway the spirit is to share the table everyday and that is what we do!! During the first week we set up this details.

    We are looking for workawayers, with or without experience, eager to help and learn, we asked for 5 days 3 hours happy hard work. The formula is 1 week to know each others and if is all OK we could go ahead ;)
    Here you will find a friendly international environment 1,5 km from the beach by bike, you will learn Spanish and Italian also. If you want more information drop me a line will be a pleasure to know more about you.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Many stories and experiences and chats to share with you, we are a couple that left the " the comfort zone" to emigrate from Argentina to Europe and again with 2 top jobs left it all to follow a dream. We have been in 60 countries from being attacked by crocodiles to survive a storm in the Indian Ocean. Happy to teach some Spanish and Italian, Celina is learning English so we can arrange for some classes.

    We will build platforms for the tents, a swimming pool, whitening the house, light masonry, drilling holes for poles, and many more. So if you have skills to do it will be a great help. After a work well done the cold beer is free ;)
