Rainforest Inn

We are scheduling volunteers who want to stay three months or so. Stay in our recently completed private volunteer quarters (we uploaded some photos). We do a Skype interview to answer questions.

Enjoy a rainforest nature experience deep in the El Yunque rainforest of Puerto Rico. Learn about what it takes to design a "high end" boutique bed and breakfast for discerning guests. We help with beach visits or camping in Culebra or Vieques one or two days a week. The Rainforest Inn is a very peaceful nature retreat prefect to de-stress. Our private hike goes to a secluded waterfall and pool.

We love our volunteers and often they return in later life to visit. We also take care of special needs like buying food for vegans (we are vegetarian). We are producing a bi-weekly podcast and if a volunteer is a good photographer and/or a sound editor we would love it. You can listen to the podcast by googling "Puerto Rico Travelcast". We expect 30 hours a week and lots of flexibility on hours and days off. Because we are a working bed and breakfast you must be clean, mature, and appropriately dressed.

I felt that the work environment was tumultuous, the expectations were unclear, and that I was unable to occupy the property except for the volunteer dorm. I requested level setting discussions numerous times, and the hosts were unable to do this. I do not recommend this exchange to anyone, especially Black people because I feel the hosts are racist. I will gladly share more details with those who inquire.

As my first world packer experience, it was just what I needed. Bill and Renee are some of the sweetest and caring people. They make you feel like it’s your second home. This is a amazing opportunity if you want to get away from everything and surround yourself with nature.

Khagi - We miss you! We wish all our volunteers were as pleasant to have around as you. I hope you are doing something exciting and challenging!

Bill & Renee are incredibly gracious hosts who try to make the best experience for the volunteer. They provide very comfortable living quarters as well as food and have the best volunteer bathroom I have ever seen. All of us have different chores depending on what is needed such as being a barista, gardening, painting, housekeeping, etc. I made coffees in the morning and painted or did yard work in the afternoon. For days off they are very accommodating and will drop you off at the beach for the day and are flexible you want to plan a short trip to see the other islands. I highly recommend.

I had a wonderful experience! I was painting walls, landscaping, and cleaning for a new suite. Based on weather, we had to be flexible. On rainy days, I also helped with hospitality. I primarily worked with Renee who is super fair and fun! She was generous and an amazing cook. Dinners were always interesting with crazy stories. Ask a lot of questions beforehand so that your expectations match up. My room was nice, but not private bc there was always workers coming in and out. Be prepared for your space to be a construction zone. The new volunteer area is also a work in progress.

The volunteer quarters should be finished soon and then we will post pictures. The floor is finally tiled and I have to do some wiring.
