  • Description


    I am Nacho, i`m a 34 years old guy that have hired a hostel in La Paloma tree years ago. We have had lots of great workawayers even before the hostel, when we growed vegetables with 2 other friends close to punta del Diablo, with whom we have had lots of fun, learned a lot (German: da ist ein Affe im Baum) and talked rubbish. Unfortunately we stopped harvesting crops but we would still like to have you around and help us with the hostel, wich is almost complette runned by workaways! Somethimes we host over 10 volunteers, so we are a little family.
    For us is important to have people that's commited with the work but also with the enviroment here, during low seasson we ussually have just a few guests, we need people happy and active to encorage guests to do activities as surfing, playing volley, go to see candombe and murga, learn to sail, learn kittesurf, party (even if the party is only 10 people), horse ridding, going exploring with us in our new tours companie.
    If you think you are the right person for the job please write to us
    hope to hear from you
