OX Expeditions

Easy job, great location, FREE VOLCANO TOURS, & nice team. We are centrally located and this work exchange will give you plenty of time to explore this ancient city.

Working in our office we have our reception staff, guides, guide manager, office manager and cook though there are often only 2 or 3 people in the office daily. The staff is extremely nice and helpful and you can spend as much or as little time interacting with us as you want outside of your shifts. We are all willing to help with showing the ropes and telling you about all the great things to do in Antigua, Guatemala. Accommodations are humble and we are always open to volunteers willing to help improve things, however, that's why we keep the working hours minimal. Volunteers get to live alone in the space located right in the heart of Antigua and are responsible for keeping things clean and tidy. I am the office manager, Kelsey and have lived in Guatemala for almost 2 years and am excited to tell you about life here.

Loved my time at OX! The manager Kelsey is the sweetest, the work is pretty easy and you have so much free time. Such a good social vibe with the other volunteers and staff as well!

I had an amazing time at ox, again. I was here a year ago and I came back to volunteer again. It happens a lot during that year and ox is still a perfect place for a volunteer. The work is easy and fun. To stay in the middle of Antigua is nice for every activity in the city. To stay with the other volunteers feels like a little home. Kelsey and all the stuff of ox is so welcoming and lovely. I can really recommend OX!

My experience at OX Expeditions was amazing. I was part of a great team and volunteers. It was a good learning experience and I enjoyed my time here in Antigua. Kelsey was available to answer any questions and she was very flexible, understanding and accommodating. I would recommend volunteering here at OX Expeditions to anyone traveling Antigua.

Totalmente recomendado. Kelsy es la mejor manager, siempre estuvo al pendiente de nuestras peticiones y siempre organizó los horarios de manera justa. Las actividades son sencillas: lavar envases y botellas, ocuparte de la lavandería, acomodar los materiales y entregarlos. Siempre queda un montón de tiempo libre para poder conocer antigua o viajar a otro lado. Además de que subir al volcán fue simplemente ¡maravilloso! Gracias por todo, ¡Ox fue en verdad un hogar!
P.d. mención especial para Maribel que siempre fue lindísima y me dio muchísimos consejos.

I had a wonderful time at OX! Kelsey is a great host, she’s always here to help, even if it doesn’t concern the job. The work is pretty easy, hours are as agreed or often less, and it’s overall pretty fun!
The leaving quarters are nice too, with a great big kitchen. What makes the experience is the great people you meet there, and I’m thankful for such a wonderful time!
