    Hey there -

    We discovered this beautiful island in 2007, while travelling around Mexico for the first time, searching for colors, new experiences, tastes and feelings. Our hostel is a familiar place opened in 2010 on the remote island of ‘Holbox’.

    The hostel was built from scratch and most of the furniture, details, paintings were made with a lot of love and a HUGE help by our volunteers during all these years. We always wanted to create a different hostel, not just a place where people sleep... but a place that makes people smile every time they think about it.

    This is a vibrant and colorful place, with a lot of plants and great people on a tiny paradise in Mexico!!

    Our mission is to transform holidays here into an EXPERIENCE where guests from all over the world help us create a space filled with music, art & culture. We also have a nice bar that offers different activities every night: jam sessions, movie nights, live music, quiz nights, giant Jenga, dress-up parties and projects more to be done. Reason why we accept volunteers all year long :)


    ▶▶▶▶▶▶▶ PLEASE READ ▶▶▶▶▶▶▶

    Minimum age is 23, please don`t message if you`re younger than that (does not apply to yoga teacher or chef).

    ▶▶VERY IMPORTANT: Please check the schedule before you message us. If the color is red, we dont need more volunteers. If we need more people last minute, we will change the color again.

    ▶▶We only plan about 2 weeks in advance so please only message us 2-3 weeks before you want to come to holbox. We get lots of messages every day and lose overview otherwise. Also, we need people who are flexible with the dates, as last minute changes can occur. Ideally you are already in the country when you message us and will be in Mexico for a longer period of time.

    When you message us, put "PART OF THE TEAM" as your first sentence so we can make sure you have read our profile description.

    We are looking for a dedicated ☛“social butterfly” ☚This could involve organising trips to the beach, sunset beers or getting a group together for a night out.

    The perfect volunteer is someone who loves interacting with people, is highly energetic, flexible and able to communicate in English and Spanish to rally our guests together to have the best time possible. We will also need you to do some flyering in the evenings.


    Almost all the staff is from México, so you will be around all the Mexican culture and family :D

    Holbox is a wild island with sandy beaches, where people who enjoy nature will really appreciate.

    The hostel has fantastic facilities, we have two full kitchens, dining rooms, a hammock area, as well as a bootcamp area and a volleyball court.

    Our guests as well as the volunteers are from all over the world, so there is a lot of exchange of culture, languages and food, as we promote a social and friendly environment so that your experience is enriching!

    Every week various activities are planned and carried out (at least 3 per day). Several of these activities are workshops or classes where you learn to dance salsa, cook, calisthenics, prepare cocktails, yoga. There are also guided tours of the island and its surroundings to explore this wonderful paradise without limits.

    Lunchtime is also fantastic, as meals from various parts of the world are usually cooked and you can always learn foreign cuisine.
