We are a family owned lodge located 2.7 kilometers south of the magnificent Arenal Volcano in Costa Rica. We have 48 rooms and 2 private villas from which our guests can enjoy the 352-hectare property and 11 kilometers of on-site hiking, horseback ridings, and biking trails.

Our property offers the closest point from which to view the volcano and is the only hotel that is located within the borders of the Arenal Volcano National Park. The 352-hectare property is comprised of roughly 25% primary rainforest, 25% agricultural farmland, and 50% secondary rainforest.

We are seeking 1-2 highly motivated individuals to help us in the areas of maintenance, landscaping, and/or customer service. We are also seeking a yoga teacher to offer classes to our clients and/or an English second language teacher to offer classes to our employees. The ideal candidate would be fluent in English or Spanish and willing to work in a remote environment with sometimes challenging conditions. Fluency in French and/or German is also a great asset. Additionally, prior experience is preferred.

Our volunteers' tasks will depend on their skills and may include, but will not be limited to, customer related services, landscaping, general cleaning/maintenance, and painting.

All of our volunteers will have the opportunity to learn and practice their Spanish, explore the property and surrounding areas, and participate in some of the activities offered on-site.

Due to the time required to train our helpers, we prefer individuals that can commit to at least a two-month term. Workers will be provided full room and board on the property and transportation to and from the airport may be arranged. A typical work week will consist of 5, 6-hour days per week and two free days. Free days can be accumulated and taken eight at a time each month as long as it doesn´t conflict with the operations of the hotel. The lodge is not responsible for any transportation, accommodation, or alimentation of the volunteer outside of what has been listed above.

We are a company that strives to be socially, economically, and environmentally responsible and use our location as a tool to educate our visitors on the splendors of the tropical rainforest and the importance of its protection. Our volunteers must share this vision and a dedication to excellence.
