Hi we (Jorge & Ashley) have a small farm with pigs, chickens and dairy cows and some small gardens. We came to Nicaragua from the U.S. about 2 years ago and love our peaceful beautiful life on our tranquil farm with an ocean view. We are located about 15 minutes North of the Nicaraguan coastal city of San Juan del Sur. We have 5 dogs and we are a family of 4. We are looking for someone to come work beside us in some of our adventures here. We have several needs and opportunities.We would like two people who can commit to a Minimum of 1 month/Maximum 3 months.
Please do not apply if you are a solo traveler as we need 2 people and preferably a couple. Thanks! :)

-Travelers can benefit from gaining experience in assisting with all aspects of running a business.
-Travelers can really benefit by learning new skills on the farm and helping mentor other workers. Anyone who comes and does a great job can count on us giving a letter of recommendation for any future references they may need!
-We are very hands off, we want a self starter and someone who can take direction and execute the task at hand after they have been given the instructions.
-Culturally you will get to experience Nicaragua's beautiful people, nature, and amazing beaches! There is a rich nightlife and surf/yoga scene nearby to partake in as well.
