  • Description

    Description

    This retreat center is located at Lake Arenal, Guanacaste, Costa Rica.
    We are right by a jungle with a pristine river running through the property. You will feel like being embraced by nature and we have many animal visitors daily.

    The retreat center and lodge has been running for about five years. We host retreats such as yoga, transformation and healing, creativity, dance and movement. We also offer classes to the community and to travelers. Apart form groups we have vacation rental accommodation through bnb and wind and kite surfing site.

    This is a positive environment, tranquil and fun. It is important for us that you are an open person, easy going, dynamic, and willing to get involved in the atmosphere of our retreat centre. Sometimes we have many guests and sometimes it is totally quiet. A lot of the time we need help with cleaning, gardening, cooking and different projects. When it is more quiet there is marketing and SEO work.

    We appreciate if you can be flexible with the hours as every day is different. We are fair and like to have a situation where every one is happy. Approximate hours is 5 hours per day, two days a week free.

    If you have any questions, please send us a mail.
    Looking forward to hearing from you!

    This is a tranquil environment and you are able to have time for yourself and enjoy the beautiful nature and wildlife around us. This is rural Costa rica, not just a touristy spot although in high season we have many visitors coming by. You will be able to contribute in a positive project. We invite you to step into your skills and creativity and anything you would like to share with us.

    Helpers can immerse into the 'Pura Vida' life style of Costa Rica. This is a center for many workshops and retreats of spirituality, healing and creativity. We offer a weekly yoga class and a Free form dance class which you are welcome to attend. We also have healing circles at time and other events for locals and travelers. This is a creative, tranquil and fun loving environment - if this draws you in, you are welcome!

  • Help

    Help

    Normally we need help with taking care of guests, some cleaning, and gardening. We have some creative projects at times. It all depends what is going on here. It also depends on the skills and interests that you can offer and bring to us.
    If you are practical and willing to help - that is most important. We appreciate volunteers who don't mind working hard at times. Every day is different.

    Usual stay is 7- 10 days. At the moment we prefer one person at a time.

    In exchange you will have a free place to stay in paradise :). We have a new house where you will have your own room or sharing with 1 other volunteer. This house will have a nice communal kitchen (basic food provided) and hangout space for all our guests.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are located in a local, rural area of Arenal. This is not a very touristic area so there is not too much hustle and bustle around.
    There is one very small shop within walking distance, in Sabalito, however, you may want to bring some food with you as we are essentially located 'off the grid'. Our closest town is Tilaran, where there are plenty of grocery stores and other amenities you may need. You can come with us at times. There are buses, but they are not super frequent.

    In your free time you can have nice nature walks and enjoy the beautiful lake scenery and at times catch a ride with us little further away. Please note that it is not so easy to do sight seeing as the local bus does not go to most sights.
