The Exchange

Kite surfing is the main sport activity here in Ilha do Guajiru! Our guesthouse & hostel is located in a beautiful laid back and safe beach village in one of the best kite spots in Brasil.

Program Details

Our team is happy about international help in different areas. You can choose if you like to help here and there a little bit or if you prefer to help in a specific area.
In general we need help in our tropical beach bar which offers a stunning view to the ocean and the kite surfer lagoon.
We are running a vegetarian cuisine and our chef always welcomes travelers who like teaching the kitchen staff new international recipes.
Our restaurant is located in the middle of our garden area with a beautiful view to our huge kite surf lagoon. You can give us a helping hand serving our sporty guests for lunch and dinner time.
If you prefer administrative targets but also interacting with guests you can help us with the targets on the reception

It's not necessary to help in all sections. It rather depends on your preferences and skills.

We also offer an "all-inclusive stay" if you prefer.

Activities & Shift

The shifts and activities are depending on your help and skills.
- If you help us in our restaurant you will help to set up the tables and serve the guests for lunch and dinner time. The lunch time varies a bit because it's depending on the high tight of the water in the lagoon because that's when most of our guests are kite surfing and need lunch afterwards. However we will agree to certain working hours which will be fine for both of us as you might want to kite as well.
- Helping in the beach bar needs some skills and practice to create healthy juices|smoothies but also brazilian Caipirinhas and cocktails.
- If you like to help us with new recipes for our vegetarian restaurant and new drinks for the beach bar we will do this in the more quiet times of the day and evenings.


For us it's important that you like what you are applying for and that you are skilled in it.
It's not necessary that you are a vegetarian or vegan but please be open about this life-style and respect while living with us.

We also offer an "all-inclusive stay" if you prefer. Please let us know if you contact us.
