Best Volunteer Program

Join our team and have fun

Volunteer at Playa El Paredón, Reserva Natural 

Imagine living at the beach like a local! Work a few hours a day, while meeting friends around the world or enjoying our backyard beach break and its waves. Feel the breeze while resting in a hammock and share the sunsets while playing volleyball. Improve your surfing or take your first lesson. Start your day with some yoga, jump into the river with a paddleboard in the beautiful mangrove jungle. Practice some spanish, cook with your team and meet the locals that will help guide you through this town.

What´s the deal?

 

5 hours a day / 5 days a week 

 

Free stay in the volunteer dorm, fully equipped with good mattresses, three speed fans and lockers for that backpacker bag.

 

We have a great staff only area fully set up with  a full kitchen (fridge, stove and oven), bathroom, shower, chilling spots,  free wifi, and a badass ping pong table (stadium). All this separated from the guest rooms and common spaces.
