    Description

    Hey There,
    We are two fellow travelers like your self that have started a hostel in Puerto Viejo, Limon Costa Rica.
    Living in the Caribbean is a dream come true for us. We have been able to meet and work with incredible people from around the world, sharing culture, food, stories and life! As we continue this dream we are looking for hard-working, fun, loving, and out-going friends to share this amazing experience with. We have amazing local employees whom have helped us develop and grow over the years. They help us with maintaining the gardens, bike repairs, paperwork and reception, daily cleaning responsibilities and keeping it cool and safe here at the hostel.
    It is extremely relaxed in the Caribbean and often times it is difficult to find a balance of work hard/play hard. That is why we are extending this invitation to those of you who know for certain you can manage this personal responsibility.
    We will need your help with keeping things clean and organized, little projects like painting/creating, and walking the 4
    dogs (giving them a rinse and bath after the salty beach). They are super friendly and will be your best friend and love you once you take them to them on thier first walk ;-)
    Furthermore, we are looking for basic computer skills for the reception shift. There will be a small training period upon your arrival to get your acquainted with our system at the hostel. We have everything writen out and a volunteer handbook as well as check lists.
    We have two workaway rooms that house two people in each. If these are full you will be in a mixed dorm room. Or if you choose you may set up a tent.You will be using the outside shower (warm water), bathrooms, and the volunteers have a their own kitchen separate from the guests. Which is your responsibility to keep clean, along with your living space. We do not provide meals. However, there is a fruit and veggie truck that comes right to our door. He is a local man who gives us great deals!
    We offer free bikes, surf and snorkel equipment, and free laundry service.
    If this sounds like it's your "cup of tea" (something you would like) ; Please, let us know. We would love to have you!

    So, to make things faster for us both.. PLEASE TYPE IN SUBJECT THE MONTH YOU PLAN ON HELPING US OUT! (we will NOT read the message if you do not do this!!!!!)

    Thank for your patience and communication ;-)

    Dannie & Dave
