The Experience

We've started a small restaurant for our hostel guests, and need someone to cook dinners. Generally there are just 2-6 guests for dinner (plus my 2 kids and 1), and it's 1 different option each night, with a vegetarian version available. Dinner cook volunteers receive a free place to stay, wi-fi and dinner. You'll be needed in the kitchen to start prepping around 5, dinner is at 7, so you'll usually be done by 8.

One of the best places in Central America, totally worth it, Mel, the owner, is an amazing person and the job it is quite simple but requires attention.
The locals are very helpful and nice too.
