    **BILINGUAL RECEPTION VOLUNTEERS/YOGA TEACHER needed early/mid February for at least 6 weeks.

    **BILINGUAL Reception/admin/handyman/yoga teacher COUPLE (or 2 friends) needed in February for at least 6 months.

    A mountain lodge that can sleep 35-40 guests, plus has walk in traffic (mostly locals) in the restaurant. We are located 20 minutes by car from Antigua, Guatemala in a small village called El Hato. We have a full restaurant and bar, we are very well known for our home cooking (largely vegetarian) and we boast one of the best volcano views in Guatemala. People come here to enjoy nature, hike, relax in a hammock, eat amazing food, and escape from the city. Due to Covid, and a lack of international tourism, the majority of our guests are Guatemalan, so speaking Spanish is an important skill to have. We have a large enclosed yoga studio, and offer classes on weekends to guests and walk ins.

    Helpers can practice their Spanish everyday plus learn from other travelers and local staff about where to go and travel. We employ 15 local workers in the kitchen and hotel grounds, so volunteers can chat with them during their stay. We also help support the local school with supplies, and financial assistance for infrastructure projects.

    Reception helpers should have a social and flexible personality, be at least 21 years old, have good communication skills in English and and at least an intermediate level of Spanish (not negotiable, sorry!!). Helpers must have in-person customer service experience (hotel, bar or restaurant) , and be able to take initiative. Helpers get a free room , free food and internet and cheap drinks plus a share of tips each month. Duties include checking guests in and out of the hotel and restaurant, answering emails and phone calls, and generally socializing and being available to guests during your exchange hours. Helpers should be comfortable working in a team environment, as there are always at least 3 or 4 other volunteers here. Helpers MUST be able to multitask as there are oftentimes a few things going on at once.

    We are looking for helpers that are here to enjoy the lodge, the great outdoors and what we have to offer (hiking, sauna, games, yoga, other guests & staff, etc) as opposed to sitting and staring at their device during their off hours. We have wifi, but also have an amazing view, and we think that's more exciting!!

    At this time, we are looking for a receptionist who is a qualified yoga teacher. Yoga teachers make extra income and lead classes outside of their reception schedule. PLEASE NOTE THAT WE DO NOT NEED HELPERS THAT JUST TEACH YOGA, but need a receptionist who is also a yoga teacher. We mostly have classes just on weekends, but we also offer private classes, which are increasing in popularity.

    ***We also are looking for a couple (or two friends) to help manage the lodge, starting in December or January. These people must have at least 6 months availability, and the above skills, with one of the couple being a qualified yoga teacher. Some admin/mgt experience plus social media or web design is also required. Please contact us for more information on this paid job. ***

    A Skype or WhatsApp interview will be arranged with potential volunteers to go over details and answer questions.
    We ask for a minimum time commitment of 6 weeks (not negotiable) as it takes at least a few weeks to learn the duties of the reception position.

    If helpers have other skills such as being yoga teachers, carpenters, masseuses, or anything along those lines, there are opportunities.
    There is great hiking around, wonderful views, hammocks to relax in, and we are very close to Antigua.
    Helpers can take the bus to Antigua (about 20 minute drive away) on market days, or join an existing guest shuttle to get back and forth to Antigua.
