I'm Australian but have lived on an island in Panama for almost 6 years. I'm a vegetarian, a chef and I love to travel.
I'm a dedicated and reliable worker, happy to get my hands dirty. Always open to new things and grateful for the opportunity to learn! It is a wonderful gift to be able to travel, I love exploring this beautiful Earth and meeting unique and wonderful people along the way.

Island life. Enough said.
Mainly Everything! From gardening to cleaning rooms. Art projects where you can create murals or signs, make natural creams, my list of jobs is endless but lots of fun. We are also in need of a Handyman, from building, plumbing, to electrical stuff. Help maintaining the gardens and taking care of the animals (chickens, cats, dogs, goats). General cleaning, or help with social media, is always appreciated.
We have a shared cabin that currently has one double bed and we are hoping to put in a bunk bed as well. This will act as space for guests and volunteers alike. There is a small kitchen in there and a bathroom with a huge shower.
Wizard Beach - 20/30 min walk
Red Frog Beach - 60 min walk or $5 boat ride
Up in the Hill - Cacao farm and cafe, 7 min walk
Bastimentos is the largest of the islands, but Isla Colon is the main island (only bank, airport, many shops and restaurants). Iguana Surf Bar is on Colon, a party bar most nights of the week. Isla Carenero is the smallest island and is in between Bastimentos and Colon.
Bastimentos also has no roads, so no cars - It's awesome!
