Leo was a wonderful host, and there were a lot of different jobs to do. The hostel really is in the middle of the jungle, and it’s beautiful. Also the staff was great! I made a lot of good friends there. Knowing some Spanish is a definite plus. I would recommend this hostel, the work and the beautiful location any time! I cannot wait to return! Pura Vida xo

The place is just incredible, in the middle of the jungle and with lots of wild animals. You can participate in the tours with guests and see the real life of local people here :) If you want to cook on your own you have to take food with you because the nearest shop is in Drake Bay and its 1 hour by boat and its not so cheap :) One thing was not good: the deal with working hours was not clear from the beggining and everybody was saying different things to do and the organisation was not good. but still its a part of adaptation to the style of living. I miss already all the people there!

El lugar es espectacular!Lejos de los lugares más bonitos, cascadas a minutos de caminata, y la vida de la selva pasando frente a tu ventana todos los dias. Hay que tener en cuenta que es un lugar muy remoto por lo que no tienes donde comprar cosas cerca. Se hace en general un muy buen grupo entre todos los que están ahí, trabajadores voluntarios y los anfitriones.
Lo único que no es buenísimo es la organización ya que hay veces en las que no tienes idea que va a ir pasando durante los días.
Fuera de eso es una experiencia muy recomendable si te quieres desconectar y conocer algo distinto

About the host

Located on 130 acres of primary rainforest and surrounded by 6 beaches we are boardering Corcovado National Park termed as "the biologically most intense place on earth"- natgeo Our place is ideal for those looking to interact with nature as well as like to be friendly and outgoing. There is no road access to us. The only way to arrive is by boat, hiking or helicopter. Volunteers should be well prepared for a rugged outdoor environment.
