We have a beautiful undeveloped white sand island located in the Pacific that is about 5 miles off the south west coast of Panama in the province of Chiriqui. The island is a magnate for great surf and one day we hope to have an adventure surf camp business on the property. At this time we have a well, a main trail and one very basic structure that is one step above camping but we are pretty much only in camping mode at this time.
We presently are cutting a walking/bike trail and clearing as much of the old fallen branches, trees and thinning of brush from all the property Hopefully we will soon be building rustic íranchosí out of trees from the property and tin. panels. We have a small solar panel and battery that keeps the cel phones charged as we do pick up cel service there.
Access by boat is presently a 7 mile run through the mangro rivers and then 5 miles of open water. We do monthly supply runs and volunteer stays are one month minimum.
Leisure activities are world class surfing, fishing and snorkeling. If you like any or all of thes and being on an awesome island in the middle of nowhere helping get our little project off the ground this could be a fun way for you to pass a months time or more.
To be a volunteer here you MUST speak SPANISH and ENGLISH and be willing to commit to helping out for at least one month. Since our one worker and another caretaker are the only full timers on the island and they do not speak English it is most important that you are able to speak Spanish (or at least be very good at using a translator app on a fone) in order to communicate with them while working together.

Please do not write to us for a volunteer position unless you speak Spanish and can stay for at least one month.

Also we generally do not accept couples.

A good fun attitude, flexibility, honesty and good work ethic is a must. This is a unique and very special place in an amazingly beautiful area but like I said it is in the middle of nowhere and we only do supply runs once a month. When on the island you are working with one other worker and if you are a person who gets bored easily and does not enjoy solitude and being almost disconnected from many others for a month this probably isnít a place you will enjoy.

We look forward to hearing from you.
