Earth Lodge is located about 20 minutes outside of the tourist town of Antigua. Known for its relaxed atmosphere, beautiful views and amazing food, it is a great getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city. We host backpackers, families, Guatemalan locals, Spanish students and other travelers.

Reception volunteers should have a social and flexible personality, be at least 21 years old, have STRONG communication skills in English AND Spanish (not negotiable, sorry!!), and be able to take initiative. Volunteers get a free room (which may be shared with another volunteer), free food and internet and cheap drinks plus a share of tips (usually around $100 per month). Volunteers work 5 hours per day, 6 days per week (30 hours) with one full day off. Duties include opening and closing the bar/restaurant area, doing bills and inventory, checking guests in and out, taking reservations via phone and email, and socializing with guests in the evening. Volunteers should be comfortable working behind a bar and be prepared to work later some evenings if guests are wanting to stay up. COUPLES ARE WELCOME IF THEY CAN WORK INDEPENDENTLY OF EACH OTHER.
We require a time commitment of at least 6 WEEKS, and some basic computer skills are necessary. Some customer service background is also required.

It is preferred that all potential volunteers come to Earth Lodge to see the place and see if it is a good fit for all. If this is not possible, a Skype interview can be set up as well.
