    Help and SPECIAL September to December caretaking at our 61 hectare,
    Dates: Sept. 1 – December 15.
    Minimum stay 1 month, maximum stay 3.5 months

    Welcome to our small 61 hectare hostel and it's 16 km of trails.
    Since 2020, we've turned our hostel into a completely naturist, nudist, clothing optional hostel, becoming Costa Rica's ONLY naturist hostel of its kind.
    For the last 15 years, our hostel has always had a clothing optional trail or two, and now we've opened all the trails and hostel to Naturism, nudism and clothed people together.
    Very importantly, we will be operating in a safe and non sexual environment without exceptions!
    We want our guests and volunteers to be happy with no pressure from anyone to participate in this way of life, but we want people who are comfortable around partially or fully naked people.
    We're thinking of putting on a requirement for volunteers; the same as in many nudist, naturist, and clothing optional resorts and communities in the world. An equal number of males and females.
    People who make others uncomfortable will be found very fast and asked to leave!
    We are two Canadians, owners and operators of the hostel.
    The hostel is surrounded by tens of thousands of hectares of rainforest, and is a 30 minute walk from a small town and our office.
    Our specialty is the extensive, 16 kms of self-guided trail system that meanders through primary and secondary forest with ocean views and waterways that lead to multiple waterfalls, all on our private 61 hectare, 150 acre property.
    All volunteers have unlimited access to the trails.
    SPECIAL HOUSE-SITTING volunteers. Ideal if you’re looking for a longer stay.
    Our Hostel is closed from September 1 – December 15. We are looking for volunteers to stay in the hostel while it’s closed. Your only work will be to keep it clean during your stay. Ideally there will be 4 – 5 people there sharing the entire space. This will be a minimum of 1 month, and up to 3.5 months. The owners will not be at the hostel, but one will be available in town on most days.

    Number 1 – 5 people.
    Amenities: WiFi, sheets towels, basic food (rice, oil, salt, sugar), cooking gas, use of washing machine (at the office located 30 minutes from the hostel), use of storage area and freezer (also at the office,).
    We will provide and account at the local store, and you’ll be responsible for bringing the staples provided to the site and buying any supplemental food you wish to consume.
    Work: about 2 hours/ day between all volunteers.
    Each volunteer couple will have a private cabina, with shared washroom.
    September to December is the rainy season. There might be quite a lot of rain at times, however you should expect some sunny days as well. There are excellent sandfly nets on all beds. It is advisable to bring bug spray.
    If you’re interested in this position, please include “House sitting” in your subject line and tell us the dates you are available.

    We have 14 beds in our new dorm area for our volunteers and guests.
    All beds have good mosquito nets, and a solid roof, right next to nature!
    There are also two double dorm beds, where we will accommodate couples as much as possible.
    Plenty of hammocks for relaxing in your off time, and a well equipped kitchen.
    The volunteers make the delicious onions and garlic style, rice and beans provided by us and eat when and where they want.

    Algo más...

    We're in a small village of 300 people, situated on the confluence of two rivers, The main economy of the village was based on gold mining which still exists to this day. Very slowly some of the local people are getting into tourism, but you'll have a great chance to mingle with the local culture in a place that is still very traditionally Costa Rican in many ways.
    Besides the trails on our property, there is a great chance to hike in the local area.

    We've had many digital nomads here and hundreds of others being able to access the internet. It's not so fast, but good enough to stream videos and youtube, more of less, if you're the only one on. The wifi comes from the designated cell phone, using the hotspot.
