    We are looking for friendly workers who like to make new friends, enjoy nature, learn about different cultures, and go on adventures.

    We currently have 3 DIFFERENT POSITIONS available: Boutique Sales (PAID position), Bicycle Mechanic (PAID position), & Trail building and maintenance (volunteer position).

    Boutique Sales:
    We are looking for a friendly worker to join our Boutique Sales team. • You need to be able to speak fluent English and good Spanish, since most of our customers are both Latin or from the US and Canada • Past experience in customer service and accountancy is a bonus but not necessary • We need someone professional and energetic, organized and clean, knowledgeable on visual merchandising display techniques, good with numbers, good communication skills, and someone who is ready to learn and be part of the team! You will be required to work at the Punta Mita office, and if so we will organize transportation for you but please let us know if you have a valid driver's license and if you can drive a manual transmission (it is required to have the license with you). • You will be paid minimum Mexican wage for a 3 month trial period. After successfully completing the trial period, you will be paid a full wage as a permanent member of the team! • Includes: Accommodation in a beautiful share house in Sayulita with other members of the team and access to surf rentals to enjoy in your time off. • Minimum stay required: 3 months.

    Trail Building and Maintenance:
    We are looking for fit and hard-working people to help the team with building and maintaining bicycle trails in the jungle surrounding Sayulita town in Mexico. These trails are used by the whole community for mounting biking and hiking. As a non-profit activity, this is a volunteer position. Trail building is very hard and strenuous work in the jungle and it can get pretty hot and humid (from 18-35° Celcius, plus humidity). The work involves clearing out bushes with a machete, clearing the trails, hiking in and out of trails, and bench cutting into the ground is required as well. You will be part of a great team of avid hikers, bikers, and surfers committed to keeping these trails available for everyone to enjoy. Experience in gardening or laboring of some kind is required. ***The majority of our team for this specific type of work is male-based, but a few female volunteers like and have joined trail building during their stay if they opt for it.*** When the work is directed to the shops (Sayulita and Punta Mita) we need help with general cleaning (laundry, sweeping, mopping, dusting, organizing the warehouse, painting walls, beach clean-ups, etc). • Volunteer position for a non-profit activity • Includes: Accommodation in a beautiful share house in Sayulita with other members of the team and access to surf rentals to enjoy in your time off. • Minimum stay required: 1 month

    Accommodation

    The House:
    You will be staying at a House Located on the west side of Sayulita, with two big dorm rooms; a woman's dorm room and a men's dorm room. With 3-full and 1-half bathrooms with hot water, camping space for 2-3 tents with mattresses at the garden, a big terrace with a picnic table and a hammock fit for great hangouts and chilling time. There's a full kitchen with basic kitchen utensils (nor food nor cooking basics or condiments are included), drinking water and WI-FI. At the house, there's a hand-washing laundry station, and washing and drying machine at the office in Sayulita which you can use (detergent not included but you can find a cheap one at the store on the corner). The house has a large garden with papaya and banana trees that give plenty of shade, we even have a giraffe! Wait to meet her XP. The house is in a quiet neighborhood away from the hectic and loud part of town, but still super close to it at only 10-minutes' walk away from the surf break, our shop, and town center where all the restaurants and bars are.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: No Drugs nor Smoking on the entire property (Doing so may result in expulsion) • No Parties
    ---------------------
    • Inclusions:
    Accommodation in a beautiful share house in Sayulita with other volunteers and members of the team
    Free access to all board equipment (surfboards, boogie boards, and SUPs).
    Free access to lessons/coached surf trips and hikes (depends on the availability and that it doesn't affect your schedule).
    Free Access to surf shuttles (depends on the availability and that it doesn't affect your schedule)

    • Exclusions:
    Free access to the bike inventory
    Food and food condiments
    Toiletries. Please bring your own.
    ---------------------

    This will be your house, as well as others. Since there are multiple people living in the same house and sharing the same space the most important aspect to keep in mind living at the house is CLEANLINESS. It is important to respect other housemates and clean up after yourself Constantly. This means cleaning up dishes right after use, taking the trash out, sweeping, mopping, cleaning and maintaining the garden area (cleaning basics are provided), keeping personal belongings only on your bed or closet/wardrobe space. It is part of the staff and volunteers' duties to rotate/organize cleaning activities amongst themselves daily.

    Please be aware that the house and owner foster animals (dogs and cats) for short periods of time, so if you have animal allergies or do not like animals, it is an important consideration.

    If you are a relaxed person, there are many options for hiking, secret beaches, reading space, surfing, swimming, etc. If you are into nightlife, Sayulita always has something happening every day of the week!

    Staff can use our equipment (surfboards, SUPs, bikes, etc) and join our trips for free during their days off!
