Right now we are starting a new project about sustainability, conscious living, social justice and how to build an eco-hostel and it will involve research online, blog writing (we will help teach you), we will also teach you some basic photoshop and web design if needed and some picture taking.

You will have teach one of us, (not a class room) what you have learned after each topic so we can learn and implement it. This work is perfect for someone who wants to become a travel blogger or lifestyle blogger. **If you have a computer that you can do research we have an internet stick, this will help a lot and will secure your spot. If you have a handheld device that needs wifi we will work something out but we can only have one person like this.

**Attention tell us when you are thinking you are coming, how long you think you might want to stay (it can be longer after we like eachother), and if you are into working on the project mentioned above. Thanks!

We will take trips into town and sometimes you may be asked to adventure as part of your day to the nearest town and help us out. We may even come with you. It's very safe and the people here are amazing.

We have many projects going on like aquaponics, permaculture, turtle rescue, organic gardening, a vegetarian cafe and a yoga temple. The surf here is great if that is your thing and there are boards to rent. We like to take kayak trips up ghd river and see the mangroves and you can come! You may be able to help, but we need to work on the research/writing/evaluating project first to get to know you.

You will living at our property (a 2 minute walk down the beach) where you will have access to your own kitchen and is just 20 steps to the ocean and river. It is relaxed and you will either get a private small room first and if they are full a tent or dorm bed. (don't worry it is rarely completely full)

Our main property includes a yoga temple, ocean front bar, turtle sanctuary and bird rescue center, organic garden, aquaponics, chicken coops and vegan/vegetarian cafe which you have full access to.

*** Attention: Please do not ask the office to volunteer, it really confuses them as we have told them we are not taking new volunteers. You must report to our location, which we will inform you in a message and talk to the director of volunteers.

With all of the above said...

If we do not respond, that means we are not accepting any addition people, but thank you and we will contact you if anyone leaves us.

Come make a difference through our volunteer program! Each day includes 4 hours of work, giving our volunteers plenty of time off in the afternoon for adventuring around the local area.

We are a 1 week minimum, 2 week promise trial period. If after 2 weeks you are show you are awesome we can go more.

Having your own computer or strong computer skills is a plus.

We are not accepting couples right now as our accommodations are not set up for couples, only single beds and we find for the work we need, one person is best and easier for us to train. It just works better for us. We hope to have something set up for the future.

**Attention tell us when you are thinking you are coming, how long you think you might want to stay (it can be longer after we like eachother), and if you are into working on the project mentioned above.

So many cool things to do, island adventures, market visits in the city, waterfalls, sea turtle watching, hiking volcanoes, jungle, surfing, become famous on our tv show, mango eatin, paddleboarding, tree climbing, partying in the city or making a bonfire on our beach. We make this place fun and relaxing at the same time, because that is the type of people we are and we have the large open space to do it!

The volunteer program includes a free mini private room and a kitchen for you to use. It's like your own private house as not to many people share the kitchen. Maximum 6 people to the kitchen.
