  • Description

    Description

    We are a family operated holistic project which opened its doors November 2017. We are working on having an urban garden by the end of 2019, yoga, wellbeing & ecotourism.

    We are interested in active, knowledgeable & pura vida individuals to come exchange their efforts & work for an amazing getaway in one of our Costa Rican locations.

    Our project is young & starting up & therefore we need passion & patience. Good vibes & great times assured.

    At the moment, we are interested in a mural artist to be inspired in inside out newly rebuilt sloth room, a tiny space with too many white walls.

    Usually our art exchange works like this: two murals for stay in one of our tents (will be given a room if available). One of the murals for our home and the other in one of the local neighbourhood walls as an attempt to unify street/mural art with local knowledge, breaking judgements and opening space for dialogue.

    If interested, contact us immediately! We are very interested!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our home is in one of Costa Rica's top tourism destinations. In the middle of the tropical rainforest and surrounded by beautiful beaches. Workaway warriors will be able to enjoy 10 minute bus trip to Manuel Antonio beaches & National Manuel Antonio Park. 10 min walking distance to Quepos Port & Pez Vela Marina, Nahomi Communal Waterfront Park. Manuel Antonio & Quepos both are filled with restaurants, cafes, nightlife, adventures & great weather. Farmer's Market runs every Friday night & Saturday morning by the Quepos dock & it's a great way to find local fruits & vegetables, artisans, a beautiful evening by the water and incredible prices.

    We are located in a Costa Rican neighbourhoods & are able to be part of the local community.

    There are Spanish schools both in Quepos & Manuel Antonio. We also teach Spanish & English classes in our guesthouse when we are there. As well as a wide variety of adventure opportunities such as canopy, whitewater rafting, horse riding, parasailing, hiking and many others.

    The home is a relaxing environment, quiet & open. As we begin our project we will start hostessing daily yoga, meditation, open dance movement, local cuisine & urban gardening workshops (December 2018). Workaway warriors can find out about our current activities by contacting us directly.

    More than anything we are a group of youngsters with a desire to create an alternative community project in this beautiful Costa Rican coast town & rainforest. We are always excited to meet & interact with fellow travellers & adventurers. Learning & sharing with one another.

    Our home has available a shared room with two beds, two privates with shared shower, & a Master bedroom. As well as a mosquito net lounge bed & space for camping.

    We are interested in valuing your work in exchange for our hospitality. Depending on the work & the season we can offer a certain type of accommodation according to the different benefits of each room that equals the value of your work.
