  • Description



    This is a social and environmental project located in a peaceful favela of Babylon near Copacabana.

    We have a guest house located in the viewpoint on the green hill of Leme. It is considered by residents and tourists as one of the most beautiful places in Rio de Janeiro.

    Over the years we support several social and environmental projects.


    As we will work in an environment where drugs are related to gang violence, please do not apply for work with us if you use illegal drugs at home or abuse alcohol. We have a zero tolerance.


    After a first negative experience with Workawayers, just ask if you have savings or any stable income so that any negative economic situation never becomes our problem.
