    We really would like someone who could stay from 1 July - 28 august , it would be great if you could stay the whole time .
    We are looking for someone who is totally independent, who wants to life in a jungle cabin with a small pool !
    You will be helping with guests, cleaning rooms , sweeping, racking leaves, helping in the kitchen, taking care of dogs and cat ...
    You will be getting a list of chores to do for the 5 hour workday, which you are expected to do on your own… It is mainly general maintenance, cleaning rooms and restaurant area and gardening: weeding, racking, cleaning walls and painting etc. We are there to help if you need it.
    You will be living in a small cabin, surrounded by jungle, with your own kitchen and bathroom and a small pool for you to use.*

    There is very little internet, so you have to be ok with that . You can go to Puerto Jimenez, they have plenty of Internet cafes and there is a collective bus to go there.

    * If the pool house is rented you will have to move to an Aframe hut .


    The volunteer must be very honest and open minded , completely independent, responsible but fun and be able to cope on her/ his own..
    You have to be independent and don’t mind roughing it a bit as we are far from anything
    You will get a welcome food package but then you will have to provide for your own food.

    You have to love nature, jungle, rivers and time on your own as there is not much else here.There are great hikes around here, lots of beautiful swimming holes in the rivers, nature at its best! Best birdwatching ever....!Watching the monkeys in the morning ...
    It is a great opportunity to spend some time in the Peninsula de Osa, enjoying nature while working a little bit....
    Now, if this is tempting you, or if you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me.

    We are also looking for someone who can do garden work, natural wood sculptures/ carvings , planting, trimming, path making ....

    This a small village, it has a new park opening and is slowly growing to become a tourist destination. It used to be a gold mining town and our place was the famous ( or infamous ) gold miners bar,brothel and jail....the cabinas with private bathrooms are in,what used to be the brothel and the bathroom for the huts are in the ex jail.
    Right now Dos Brazos Del Rio Tigre it is still of the beaten track.
    It has a small shop, a place to buy fresh vegetables,a cheviche and bread man comes on Thursday.
    You can hitch a ride with me when I go to town or get an express (5000 colones ) for getting your food in Jimenez.
    It is one of the best places for birdwatching, jungle/ river walks, swimming... within an hours drive you can go surfing, kayaking, whale watching, zip lining..

    We are a twenty-minute drive from Puerto Jimenez. Puerto Jimenez is a beach town that has a hospital, grocery store, hardware store, fruit/veg shop, meat shop, restaurants, two banks, etc.

    There is a collective bus Mon- Wed-Fri leaving Dos Brazos at 7am and 12 and coming back at 11am and 3pm or you can hitch a ride with me when I go to town.

    You need to be very honest and easy going,fun to be around with.You have to be able to work completely on your own, take responsibility , make your own meals , don’t mind living on your own, have to clean rooms and restaurant from departing guests,racking leaves , garden work, helping fix up the place like painting walls , some social media for my website and promoting my business.

    In case there are guests :
    Experience in working with tourists is not necessary as long as you can socialize and make guests feel at home.You will have to welcome guests and explain the area and our tours and just to be there for the guests, clean the rooms when they leave etc.

    You will have a room on your own, just that sometimes you might need to change the room if it has been reserved and the guesthouse is full.
    When the Little Pool house is not rented you will stay there and have a paradise living in full nature. It is not rented very often...
    You are getting our best accommodation so we give you a welcome food package ( rice, coffee , sugar, milk..,) but then you are on your own for food and have to do your own cooking.
