About

We need volunteers to shovel and move dirt from one part of the property to the other as we build another aquaponic fish hole. We currently use an NFT grow system and plan to incorporate DWC as well, once the hole is dug.

Picking of cashews daily is during April May and June along with jacote season, some jacotes are ripe in March.

There are three options to stay with us, In the boat, In the French Quarter (which is a bug free double bunk), air conditioned rooms are for paying guests, we currently have one with two beds,. or in the spacious standing room tent. We encourage WWOOFers to bring their own camping gear, including a flash light, hammock and tent, if desired, as our property is large enough for you to find your space. We provide WWOOFing guests with the basic tent stay as no charge for basic lodging of WWOOF guests will be applied to the large tent.

We are basic at the moment but are a part of a great community of 111 families; we have clean drinking water and nearby food/beer/small stores with chips and frozen treats.

We have great surf at high tide, protection from city problems as we are on an island, our property is two doors down from the army. It is a water life and most guests stay on our thirty three foot vessel, Odissea. Volunteers stay in a large room tent and there is now a bug proof area we call The French Quarter. Bugs are only bad for an hour during dusk/dawn but it is worth bringing repellent. The community has a few papusa restaurants and many times meals are sold by walking vendors. This is an island lost in time with two communities to visit, beaches with roaming cows and horses, a lifestyle feeling set in a different frame of time.

We have mature cashew, mango, jaqotes, coconut and newly planted pineapple, citrus, banana, cacao and a variety of indigenous fruit trees which are usually ripe in March April May and June. Come enjoy our piece of paradise with us, backpackers or commune seekers. We are looking for no more than twenty inhabitants/guests to live and thrive in our jungle island community.

Guests can be expected to take it easy and volunteer when desired. Volunteers/non paying volunteers must work four hours per day at least four days a week. Current projects include hauling dirt from one end of the property to another and volunteers are always needed to interact and play with the local indigenous children. You may even be able to teach and English or computer class!
