My wife and I are running eco and pet friendly guesthouse at the beachfront of Playa Larga in Zihuatanejo, Guerrero, Mexico. We want that our guests feel in a familiar, cosy and confortable environment, making their stay as amenable an enjoyable as possible.
Help with Eco Projects
Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
By joining our project you will be able to live and work in a beautiful beach, meet new people (locals and foreigners), get to know the Mexican culture from a near perspective, improve your Spanish, taste a rich variety of delicious local food, and put your managerial skills at work.
We are looking for someone that enjoys the beach, with excellent people skills and that has a good command of English and Spanish (other languages such as French and German are a plus). The role of this person is to be the host of our guest house, and help in the general maintenance of the place (organize laundry, make sure the rooms are clean, pay attention to little details that will improve the condition of the guesthouse). We expect this person to receive guests, show them around, make recommendations about where to go, and make sure that they enjoy their stay.
We offer a confortable beachfront room with bathroom and basic services. The guest house has also a communal kitchen that can be used by our workaway. Our workaway will have to cook for him/her self, and do their grocery shopping. Laundry, supermarkets and other facilities are 13 minutes away by car in the nearby town of Zihuatanejo. Zihuatanejo is a major tourist destination with the charm of a fishing village.
We believe that this opportunity is ideal for people that want to stay for a longer time period at a quiet and beautiful place. Although Playa Larga is a virgin beach, major touristic destinations are near by. Delicious traditional restaurants are less than one km away. Zihuatanejo and Ixtapa (13 minutes by car) also offer beautiful beaches and other touristic attractions. In your time off you will be able to get to know a wonderful region in the Pacific coast of Mexico. There is transportation from Playa Larga to Zihuatanejo.
