The Experience

I am looking for serious travelers who are willing to put in some easy work in return for accommodation. We appreciate some motivation and initiative in helping to keep the place clean and to get it ready for the next group on changeover days. When not working, you are free to explore the area which has loads to offer. We are not far from the famous Puerto Banus and the Old Town of Marbella. Bus connections from the Diana Commercial Centre.

I loved this experience and wished I stayed more then two weeks. The people are so welcoming and lovely and the place is really nice. It takes a 20 min walk to go from el Cortijo to the bus stop (there also is a shopping centre) that connect you with all the cities along the coast until Marbella. The work hours were varied enough and were not heavy. Thank you all and hope to see again El Cortijo!

Thank you Linda for your help and glad to hear you had a positive experience for your first Worldpackers trip abroad. Wishing you all the best and maybe we see each other again one day :-)


El Cortijo es un lugar increíble! Desde Peggy , Linda, Manolo, Domingo, Alejandra hasta Gali Eli Naty! Todos excelentes personas. Tuve unas semanas hermosas en ese lugar paradisíaco. Se disfruta mucho la naturaleza y llegué un poco tarde para la piscina pero tambien pude disfrutar. Recomiendo totalmente q vayan al Cortijo. Los voy a estar visitando cualquier día de estos! ❤

Jeje gracias por tu entusiasmo Cynthia! Nos vemos, un beso fuerte y suerte con tu viaje :-)


I had a great time at the Cortijo with Peggy, Manolo and the other employees. Great environment, atmosphere and surroundings. Marbella and Estepona are lovely towns and it is also easy to travel to other pretty villages around the area. Would love to go back someday. Thanks Peggy for welcoming us.

About the host

I was young once 😊 and can imagine this is a great way for you to see the world and keep it affordable. I will be happy to contribute to this idea in return for some help 😎 Work will be easy and never more than 5-6 hours per day so you can enjoy the rest of the time off :-) If you speak both English and Spanish reasonably you will get preference!
