Lakeside Arenosa, in the friendly fishing village of La Arenosa which is a one hour drive from Panama City and the Pacific beach resort towns of Gorgona and Coronado. Our 2 acre property has 1000 of water front in a serene setting, on a private swimming bay on one of the largest fresh water man made lakes in the world. La Arenosa is a primary departure point for fishing charters (some of the world's best freshwater fishing, including Peacock Bass, Tarpon, Oscars, Snook and Talapia).

At this time, and for the next 6-12 months we would like to find a couple, or individual to look after our place full time. The property is approx 2 acres and is located on Lago Gatun. There are 4 buildings on the property, and you would occupy a casita that is self contained with a large balcony and a beautiful view of the lake. There is a floating dock for swimming and fishing that is next to a bird sanctuary and 500 feet of lake front. Truly spectacular.

We have one medium size dog that we cherish and will require looking after. Her name is Lily and she has the run of the property but is also an inside dog, meaning she will be sleeping inside the house, perhaps on your bed if your willing.

The skills from volunteers that matter the most to us would be:
-Gardening, landscaping and landscape design.
-Construction, electrical, welding, plumbing.
-General maintenance

We are looking for self-motivated volunteers,

The accommodation will be a private room with your own bathroom. The bedding is a double bunk bed on the bottom and a single on the top.
Cooking and laundry (washer only) are included.
Electricity is included, but if you feel the need to run the A/C, there will be an extra charge. We currently have internet, but that will be at a fee of 75.00 per month. This is high speed and is unlimited. If you do not want that, them you can purchase phone card with internet, but it is very limited and good for calls, whatsapp and email only.

This 2 acre property has a significant incline from the house to the lake so it is not very handicapped friendly

We also offer use of the property’s amenities, such as kayaks, the lake (nice swimming and great fishing), and multiple chill spots.

This is not the usual helpx advert as we have no work in exchqnge for meals. This is a volunteer to look after our place and dog in exxchange for a place to stay.You will be responsible for all costs regarding your personal meals etc.

We are looking for a 6 month minimum commitment, so it is important that you are able to stay in the country for that amount of time without any passport issue.

We look forward to hearing from you and truly want to share this adventure with you.
