My wife and I have lived in Costa Rica, Panama and now Ecuador. We are retired from the hotel business in CR.
We now live across from the beach on 2000 sq meters
We have four rental apartments and a separate house for the volunteers. We have rescued many dogs and kept some that we couldn't find homes for them.
You will stay in your own house and we will provide $40 worth of food a week for you. We prefer couples and do not accept children.
Help in the house
Help with Computers / internet
They will be working sometimes with our employee, fixing things and helping him in what ever way they can. It is a great opportunity to learn about the local culture and how people live.
We are looking for a couple who love dogs.The help includes helping with the dogs, maintaining the plants, cleaning the pool. Also, we usually rent our apartments long term but at times we have a 1- 3 night stay and you will be required to clean before and after their stay. We ask for 3 - 5 hours a day depending on what needs to be done. At times, you will help with small projects with our garden/maintenance man. We provide $40 worth of food per week for 3-5 hours work a day for 5 days a week. On days off you can go away to visit other interesting places close by us, Isla de Plata, Los Frailes beach and and during the season go whale watching. You will live in your own separate house with an equipped kitchen.
. The volunteer house hot water, bath, equipped kitchen, queen size bed in bedroom and living room. There is also a covered outdoor seating area to relax on your time off and have a beer.
Around the town there is great opportunity for exploring the beaches and local flora and fauna. Surfing is known to be very good in the area and is still largely unknown to most tourists. If you are looking for a great whale watching experience, then Puerto Cayo is a must stop for you. Puerto Cayo is known to have some of the best whale watching opportunities on the coast. The migration of the humpback whale takes place from June to September.
Puerto Cayo is also the gateway to Parque Nacional Machalilla. This large protected park created in 1979 also incorporates Isla de la Plata.
