    Description

    Hi, my name is Angel, I am a kiteboarding Instructor and pro trainer from the International Kiteboarding Organization.

    I run a Kiteboarding School in Progreso, Yucatan, Mexico, since 2012

    My main activity is managing the school; we are the biggest and most popular kiteboarding school in the area, we receive a lot of people to train and practice the sport in our facilities; I have 8 Instructors who are in charge of the kiteboarding lessons and 1 person who is in charge of the kitchen.

    I am looking for anyone that is willing to help me with the general maintenance of the school or my house which is in front of the kite school. A COUPLE IS PREFERRED.

    I have 4 dogs and a cat, so being with these animals will be part of the day by day.

    I want to invite enthusiastic and energetic people who wants to help me and at the same time would like to live in a peaceful, quiet town as Progreso. The help doesn't enquire any specific experiences but it does require responsibility with the general maintenance of the school or my house.

    I am open to have you for long time, like a month or more if it works for both parties.

    I do not offer food so the max hours per week would be 3 hours 5 days a week.
    If you are a Chef, then I could provide food to share.

    IMPORTANT:
    At the school we have a little kitchen for the customers, where a local cook is in charge of preparing the food and drinks; the workawayers WON´T BE requested to help in the kitchen for cooking, cleaning or any task regarding the restaurant or bar.

    With us you have the opportunity to be close to the beach and beautiful visiting areas as cenotes, ruins and of course, the main city: MERIDA.
    Beside that, you will have the opportunity to learn kitesurfing. I can get you good deal on a beginner course or renting kite equipment. Or if you want to borrow a Stand up paddle to go paddling in the morning I have some gear you can use at no cost.
    If you are looking for a place to learn more Spanish this is also the right place to be, since you will be chatting with the locals every day. We can also take you diving in the Cenotes on a day off.

    Accommodation

    I am offering an independent room with a queen size bed, a desk, some furniture and a fan. It does not have AC.

    At the school or in the house there are showers, bathroom, kitchen and internet.

    I do not provide drinking water or food (unless you are a Chef we could deal something to share food).

    You will stay close to the nature (beach) and if you are a person that require high standards, this help might not be for you.

    Yucatan is well known for its rich cultural offer, the mayan culture in which is immerse makes Progreso and its surroundings an interesting spot in the map to stay and share experiences with the locals, learn about our pre-hispanic history, the customs of the maya people, enjoy the modern city of Mérida, relax and/or practice kiteboarding and other watersports.

    Also the food is great, a lot of people comes to Yucatán just to enjoy the locals specialities. Yucatan cuisine is famous for its wide variety of tasty dishes.

    The transportation system works good, there are local buses and apps like Uber or Didi working well and cheap.
