Greetings from Cascada Elysiana!
We are an Eco-lodge and Retreat Center located in the beautiful jungle of Southern Costa Rica. Located just 30 minutes from Domincal beach, we are in the perfect location for one to experience serene jungle living with proximity to the Pacific coast as well as major cities.
The property also features a magical river and incredible 40 meter waterfall that all volunteers and guests have easy access to. With other massive waterfalls, rivers, and jungle adventures near the property, you will always have things to do while you are here.
We love meeting new world travelers and creating new connections with super cool humans and we promise you will always be taken care of while you are here. However, our top priority here is always our guests! We provide restorative and transformational experiences for our hotel and retreat guests through superb hospitality, local and fresh vegetarian cooking, and eco-conscious living.
**We are currently looking for a volunteer CHEF to cook elegant, vegetarian meals for lunch and dinner for our guests!**
We opened in July 2018 and we are steadily growing. This is why we need great volunteers like you! We are so appreciative of those who want to put their love into this place and help us work toward our vision of one day evolving into solely a retreat center!
The atmosphere we seek to create with our staff and volunteers is a balance between having fun and being productive, all-the-while fostering an environment of personal growth and development. With total acceptance of one another and always working together as a team, we know that ANYTHING can be accomplished! And we have accomplished some incredible things here with the help of our volunteers!
We always have a manager available on the property and the owners come to visit throughout the year. Our managers are exceptional and are always available for any questions or concerns you may ever have. As a volunteer, expect to be supported and taken care of throughout your entire stay here. We want to make you feel as comfortable as possible!
Cascada Elysiana fosters a multi-lingual and multi-cultural environment. Almost all of our staff is bi-lingual, speaking either Spanish, or English and Spanish combined. Our Organic Master Gardener and builders are all Tico (local) and Spanish-only. Our cleaning and cooking staff is also mostly Spanish-speaking, and any of the interactions you have with locals in San Juan will be in Spanish.
