    Our volunteers contribute their creative energy and talent at our busy jungle hostel. We need help with customer service, English instruction, yoga instruction, cooking, cleaning and photography, in addition to help with special projects! We are looking for outgoing and positive team players, ready to join our hostel family in the jungle. Please read on to know more about the hostel.

    MORE ABOUT US...

    We are located in the Panamanian highlands (on the main road between both oceans) on more than 30 acres of rain forest (cloud forest) and re-purposed organic coffee farm. We are also the deepest private reserve within the La Fortuna nature park. We are a youthful backpackers hostel at heart, but due to our unique location within the reserve we have also hosted scientists, nature enthusiasts, birders, etc. There was even a new species of salamander discovered here and named after us! :)

    Minimum commitment length we are looking for from volunteers is 25 days. The length of stay should be quite defined so we can coordinate new volunteers. It is very important to us to know your exit date. Please be respectful about your time frame committment.

    We look forward to sharing the experience of living in the jungle with you.
