I worked at Greengos for nearly 6 weeks as the entertainment coordinator / bar staff , although there were some rearranges to staff while I was there, I found the owners to be fair and appreciative of hard work. I was able to gain experience in the bar which I had not previously had as well as practice Spanish via the spanish speaking staff. I found my hours to fair and flexible, basically my manager would ask me what my plan was for the day, I would analyze the amount of guests and what they wanted to do in regards to possible activities.

I stayed at Greengos for 6 weeks. In the beginner we received our meals at appropriate times, The owner changed everything after 1 week to beans rice and bread for the meals and eating times, breakfast 10am, lunch 3pm and dinner 12am. I got to spend time with the loverly Che chi people at Green-gos. The Workers or 24 we are told to call them, are modern day slaves, you ring a bell and the workers run to your service 24 hours for less then 50Q a day while being treated poorly. I would never support a organization like Greengos, they only take and never give back to the community.

Great way to see the beautiful Semuc Champey for a good amount of time while saving some money and getting to know the people/area. A month flew by! I’ll be back 🙂
