  • Description


    We have 4 paid staff, night guard, receptionists, and a maid. We are a relatively new hostel and we're looking to add some new activities, but we need some volunteers to help us do that! We have a beautiful family and all of our volunteers will be treated just as so! We have the best view of any hostel here in Manuel Antonio for bird watching and nature enthusiasts. We are looking for some amazing personalities to brighten up our atmosphere and make our visitors feel like home. We work as a team, communicate as a family, and we're here for you. Come to learn what Pura Vida is all about at our Hostel!

    The National Park of Manuel Antonio is a quick bus ride away, along with the Manuel Antonio beach. Surf, sand, and sun on our days off are common. If you like to hike, there are also some nice trails around and Playa Biesanz is worth a visit. There you can swim or rent a kayak for the day and just enjoy a sunbathe. Even the waterfront and the Friday/Saturday food market in Quepos are really nice and only a 10 minutes bus ride from us. You should not miss to explore the Nationalpark of Manuel Antonio, because it has got a high variety of animals and the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica. There also is a catamaran tour,jet ski tour, fishing adventures, parasailing, ziplining, a mangrove boat tour, wildwaterafting, a night-jungle-hike, waterfalls etc.
