We have a little farm at the mountain in the Pacific Coast Of Costa Rica, and we want to create a sustainable place with variety of activities (farm duties, forest adventures and traditional activities).
We are constructing all the infraestructure, taking care of animals, and designing all the activities that we would offer to visitors. It is a very rural place, so the life is very simple.

Helping with Tourists
Learning/practicing Spanish language
Living with a local young guy, sometimes with all the family, and learning about their way of live (food, customs, music, etc)
Learning of Costa Rican old traditions and activities by creating the project at the mountains.
We need help in a many ways, but it is not necessary to know about everything, we just need people can help with aminimum of two of the following duties:
Construction (fences, painting, wood working, animal houses, work with pallets, etc)
Farm animal care (milking, cleaning, feeding, etc).
Marketing (taking photos, social media ideas, videos, etc)
Art with wood (construction of playground, some painting ideas)
It is little house of a family, could have a private or shared room, depends of how many volunteers are comming. The house is not finished yet, but has kitchen, bathroom and beds. Also, we don’t have regular electricity as we are installing solar panels, so we use a temporary electric power generator for main needs.
The food is Costa Rican typical food most of the time, but we also cook international food (pasta, sandwiches, hamburguers, etc.) We offer 3 meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) and some times we have coffe time (it is a tradition in Costa Rica). We cook, however, workawayers have to cover their food expenses.
There is limited access to internet and no phone signal at the mountain.
There is a lot of things to do on free time, that are totally free:
River activities (swimming, fishing)
Mountain activities (hiking, trail running, yoga, horse back riding)
There is a few National Parks that people can visit and a lot of paid adventures (canopy, rappel, rafting, etc).
Volunteers have to take a bus from San José (where the airport is) to Esterillos (2-3 hours) and we take them to the farm (one hour).
