We offer lots of wildlife viewing for guests in our 800acres of protected rainforest and are also next to the beach. We are looking for a volunteer(s) for the end of our high season from mid-March to the end of April. Hosting duties and helping out in the kitchen. Another workawayer position is also available for babysitting a 4yr old and 8yr old.

    All our staff is local so volunteers will interact with local Spanish speakers form a small community in Costa Rica called Punta Banco. The town itself is 5-10min walk by so you can go and watch soccer matches or help out in the community as well (there is a Turtle community project ongoing for the last 15yrs). Our guests are from all over the world and nature lovers and always very interesting. We are surrounded by nature and volunteers have the opportunity to be able to observe birds, wildlife, trees and plants if different species close to the lodge.

    We are looking for volunteers to helping with hosting duties at the lodge: greeting guest when they arrive, taking them to the cabins and also showing them where the waterfall is, or the swimming beach, tidal pools, horses etc.
    Some social media help as well, posting pics to Instagram or to Facebook. The 5hrs would be split up between the morning and the afternoon/night when guests are around and the 5 days as well.
    We are also looking for a babysitter for the managers' two daughters, 4 and 8, who will be in their summer vacation. Location is a 15min walk at an off-grid cabin, lots of outdoor activities and creative play. Meals would be at the lodge or precooked at the lodge and heated up at the house.

    Volunteers can explore the rainforest around us (we have over 15km of trails), brush up in their Spanish or start learning it, swim in the ocean, learn to surf, horseback ride, ride bike, get to know the community of Punta Banco, go on guided walks with our guide.

    Our internet connection is 50mbps but if there are large groups, especially at mealtimes it may be spotty. Other connections can be with a hotspot on a data phone for meetings that cannot be missed etc.
