Hi, we're a german couple running a small 8 room lodge on the central Pacific coast of Costa Rica, looking for help running, maintaining and improving the place. The place is located right on the beach front of one of Costa Rica's most consistent surf beaches. There are also hiking, mountainbiking and other ourdoor activities.
We receive so many workaway applications that I can't reply to every single one, sorry! You're all great! We usually get in touch within a couple of days in case your request fits our timeline and general preferences.

Our area is completely bilingual, meaning in practice you'll need to speak (not write) English and Spanish - if your level allows you to communicate, that's fine no need to speak the languages perfectly - giving you an opportunity to practice your skills and get more confident speaking a foreign language. English / Spanish basics are required, any other language (French, Portugese, German, Italian...) is a bonus.
You'll interact with and get to know nice people from all over the planet as well as from Costa Rica.
In general we're looking for people to help with the every day work of running the hotel, this includes check-in / check-out and helping the guests with their other needs and interests, minor maintenance and gardening. Couples (meaning any kind of two workawayers traveling together) preferred. You should be at least 23 years old and know English and basic Spanish.

Depending on availability, the length of your stay and if you are a single person or with a partner, you'll stay on-site in a 1 room Studio or 2 room apartment. Each unit has a private bathroom and kitchenette for self-catering, and is located fewer than 150 ft. from the beach.
You'll stay work and play right on a tropical Pacific beach, and you'll have time to surf, swim, hike or whatever you like to do, every day. We're looking at about 3 hours of work per day, but these can be flexibly arranged.
