    PLEASE READ OUR PROFILE CAREFULLY AND WRITE US IF YOU ARE INTERESTED :)

    RIGHT NOW WE WELCOME PPL WITH ARTISTIC SKILLS TO DRAW AND PAINT STH BEAUTIFUL IN THE WLLS OF OUR HOUSE!!!

    Hello travelers! We are Andrés and Blanca from Costa Rica and Barcelona. We have traveled for a while to find a beautiful place here in Dos Amates, near Catemaco (State of Veracruz). It is an incredible area, surrounded by green, waterfalls and birds. A few months ago we settled here and although we have already done a lot of work there is still a lot to do!
    We have a land of 1000 square meters, a house and a bamboo hut to host workaways. Later we want to start an ecotourism project. For now, we need a lot of help, dynamic and motivated people who want to share this experience with us. We both have experience in workaway (Andrés as a host and Blanca as a volunteer) and we have had incredible experiences with workaways around the world. We have met amazing friends and... we even met each other by workaway!!

    We have been working with workaways for a long time now, and we are so happy with all the experiences and help we received! Please keep reading to know what kind of help we are needing now.

    - We want to start a veggie garden.
    - We need to paint our house
    - We need to keep the garden clean (be ready to use your hands and a machete!)
    - We need help cleaning our house (we have a 9 months old baby, so it gets quite dirty/messy!)
    - Do you sing? Play an instrument? Do you like kids/babies? You can entretain our beautiful son :)!
    - Do you have artist skills? Are you creative? There are lots of empty spots in our land that need a magical touch!
    - Sometimes, some heavy work might be needed: strong hands are welcome!

    Please be ready to do different kind of jobs!

    We are now asking for only 3 HOURS OF WORK / 5 DAYS A WEEK.
    We are not providing breakfast anymore, sorry about that.
    But, we are happy to share meals with you, and if we are making pizzas (we have a beautiful oven) you are obviously invited!
    Also, we might have bananas, oranges, and some other veggies/fruits available in our land.

    We want nice people, with good energy and willing to enjoy time with us and in the area.
    Here it is beautiful, with many waterfalls, birds, 40 min from the beach, lakes... If you like nature, if you like sharing, if you like the sense of a small community, ... this is your place !

    AHORA BUSCAMOS GENTE CON TALENTO PARA DIBUJAR Y PINTAR UN DISEÑO BONITO EN LAS PAREDES DE LA CASA!!

    Hola viajer@s! Somos Andrés y Blanca de Costa Rica y Barcelona. Hemos viajado por un tiempo hasta encontrar un lugar hermoso aquí en Dos Amates, cerca de Catemaco (Estado de Veracruz). Es una zona increíble, rodeada de verde, cascadas y pájaros. Hace pocos meses que nos instalamos aquí y aunque ya hemos hecho mucho trabajo todavía queda mucho por hacer!
    Tenemos un terreno de 1000metros cuadrados, una casa y una cabaña de bambú para hospedar workaways. Más adelante queremos emprender un proyecto ecoturístico. Por ahora, necesitamos mucha ayuda, gente dinámica y motivada que quiera compartir esta experiencia con nosotros. Ambos tenemos experiencia en workaway (Andrés como anfitrión y Blanca como voluntaria) y hemos tenido experiencias increíbles con workaways de todo el mundo. Hemos hecho amigos que son parte de nuestra familia y... de hecho Andrés y yo nos conocimos a través de Workaway! Así que estamos eternamente agradecidos por todo lo que nos ha aportado.

    Hemos trabajado con workaways durante bastante tiempo y estamos muy agradecidos con todas las experiencias y la ayuda recibida! Sigue leyendo para saber qué tipo de ayuda estamos necesitando ahora:

    - Queremos empezar un huerto
    - Necesitamos pintar la casa
    - Hay que mantener limpio el jardín (vas a usar las manos y el machete!)
    - Ocupamos ayuda manteniendo la casa limpia (tenemos un bebé de 9 meses, así que suele estar desordenada/sucia...)
    - Cantas? Tocas algún instrumento? Te gustan los bebés? Puedes entretener a nuestro hermoso hijo :)
    - Tienes habilidades artísticas? Eres creativ@? Hay varios lugares en el terreno donde puedes dejar volar tu imaginación!
    - A veces, puede que necesitemos hacer trabajo duro!

    En cualquier caso, estén preparados para hacer diferentes trabajos!

    Pedimos 3 HORAS DE TRABAJO / 5 DÍAS A LA SEMANA.
    Ya no damos desayuno, lo sentimos... (pero pedimos menos horas de trabajo!)
    Eso sí, estaremos encantados de compartir comidas contigo, y si hacemos pizzas (tenemos un hermoso horno de leña), estarás invitado, por supuesto!
    Además, puede que cuando llegues tengamos plátanos, naranjas y otras frutas o verduras de nuestro terreno.

    Queremos a gente linda, con buena energía y con ganas de disfrutar con nosotros y explorar esta hermosa zona.
    Aquí es bellísimo, rodeado de cascadas, pájaros, a 40 min de la playa, hay lagunas alrededor... Si te gusta la naturaleza, te gusta compartir, buscas sentirte en una pequeña comunidad... este es tu lugar!
