    UPDATE: January 2nd, 2021 - Tim (the husband) has been recovering from surgery for the last month so we apologize for our lack of response to so many potential workawayers. Tim's recovery is coming along so we are hoping to finally get back to some of you soon.

    American and Costa Rican husband and wife (a young 41 and 39) with 3 acre estate, finca (farm), large home and guest house set in the most beautiful nature in front of Lake Arenal. We want to start an organic farm, and my wife would love to receive English lessons. (I am fully bilingual English/Spanish but I am a terrible teacher and we only speak Spanish at home as a result). Also, I run a public relations and marketing company from my large home office, so there could be work for those with writing, graphic design, web design or video editing skills, amongst others.

    You will have a chance to experience living directly in some of the worlds most rich and unique biodiversity; you will woken by tucans and and howler monkeys every day; we will help you with your Spanish through immersion; you will learn traditional and natural Central American small farming techniques ; you will learn about the flaura and fauna; you may have the opportunity to work with me in my public relations agency and learn what it really takes to move your business fully virtual and become an expat from an American expat who moved abroad permanently 17 years ago at just 23 years of age. From my wife, a native Costa Rican, you will learn the real Costa Rican culture; from the wide variety of mythology and Costa Rica’s unique Spanish expression to traditional food and beliefs.

  • Ayuda


    There may be many types of help you can offer, from helping us hand plant an organic farm and taking care of the land , to offering English classes for my wife, to assisting me in my own work which could include professional writing (in English), graphic/web design, etc. We also enjoy meeting new people from different culture and especially trying their food, so if you like to cook and share your culture through food, that would be welcome as well. Helping with some housework is another option.

    My wife would love to receive English help and the both of us would love to help with your Spanish!

  • Alojamiento


    3 meals a day are included, usually prepared together with us. I love sharing meals with guests and find it the best time to share and really get to know each other and learn from one another. Accommodation will consist of either a full guest room in the main house, or you can choose to stay in a full-sized, independent worker’s home on the property.

    Algo más...

    You are just minutes from the lake shore, as well as puerto San Luis, one of the main access areas to the famous Lake Arenal and all the water activities it has to offer. Public buses run directly in front of the property, and taxi drivers are available within minutes by a quick phone call. Tilaran, the main town close to the property, is less than 10 minutes away by car. You should have more than adequate opportunities to explore the lake arenal region, including its rainforests, waterfalls, natural thermal hot springs at the foot of the nearby arenal volcano, and so much more. World class beaches are also just a little more than an hour away and easy to get to.

    I run my business from my home office and have been a digital nomad myself for 13 years! Our internet is quite reliable and redundant for rural Costa Rica, with no directional speeds of about 15mb, which is quite good for rural Costa Rica.
