We are a family-owned and operated outdoor center, located in a small town in the beautiful Costa Rican countryside. We are seeking an experienced Class 3/4 kayaker to assist with whitewater kayak instruction, running safety for raft trips, and photographing trips, with the option to raft guide on occasion. This is a great opportunity for a hard-working individual to share their skills with a growing outdoor center business.
