We are a small jungle hideaway located in the middle of the Rio Dulce National Park, between Rio Dulce town and Livingston (Caribbean side of Guatemala). Although it feels like a million miles from anywhere, being just off the popular tourist route between Livingston and the town of Rio Dulce means that the hotel is easily accessible by boat.

We have an opening for a volunteer starting in May and for a Manager (with local salary) starting at the end of June, 2015.

The hotel has 2 bungalows, 2 rooms and a 5-beds Jungle Loft. max 18 persons bed space. We offer drinks, restaurant services, rent kayaks, organize tours etc. We work closely with the local indigenous community. All our electricity comes from solar and we do our best to minimize our impact on our environment.

We are offering a place for an enthusiastic volunteer, willing to engage in whatever needs to be done.

Speaking good SPANISH and ENGLISH is essential, any experience in tourism/hospitality is a big advantage.

The work is flexible and depends on the occupancy in the hotel. The tasks include reception work, quality control, some cleaning, helping out in the kitchen, garden, general maintenance of the place, serving dinner and closing the restaurant area, socializing with the guests. Any creative ideas and projects are very welcome as well!

All meals on workdays;
Accommodation in a separate room for volunteers (1 to 3 ppl.);
Free tours and free kayaks (when available);
Free boat transfer to Livingston and back once a week;
