  • Description


    Hello everybody,

    My name is Roberth and I live in Quepos in the Puntarenas Province of Costa Rica. Quepos is a beautiful town very close to the well known Manuel Antonio National Park.

    I have been a Doctor for 25 years and I am currently the director of the local Hospital here in Quepos. I usually work Monday to Friday so for a lot of the week you will have the house to yourself.

    Practice your Spanish and get to know the beautiful local area.

    Manuel Antonio National Park is just a short bus ride from my home and is the most well known national park in all of Central America. You can see all three of the different monkeys found in Costa Rica - Howler, Capuchin and Squirrel monkeys. It is also common to see raccoons, sloths and many amazing birds.

    Also close by is Rio Savegre which has many beautiful waterfalls and is also well known as the cleanest river in Central America.

    Marino Ballena National Park is also just 45 minutes from Quepos and is well know for its 'whale tail' formation at low tide.

    I am not really looking for anybody to work for me particularly. I am on Workaway because I like to host people in my home and have a chance to practice my English daily. If you are wanting the chance to practice your Spanish this could be the perfect option for you.

  • Accommodation


    You will have your own bedroom with a double bed and you will also have your own bathroom. I have wifi, a big tv, air conditioning, plenty of fans and nice open living areas.

    In terms of food you will have access to my kitchen to cook your own food should you have special dietary requirements and sometimes it will be nice to eat together.

    Every Friday night and Saturday morning there is a market in Quepos to buy delicious fruit and vegetables for very cheap.
