El Zopilote is a farm inspired by the principles of Permaculture and at the same time a hostel and guest house. In both fields a lot of work is necessary to run, maintain and develop the project so volunteers are more than welcome. There is always so much to do that the opportunities for all kinds of volunteer work are not lacking. To name a few: Manager on pizza nights, manager of the organic shop, gardener, yoga teacher, runner. By participating in the project you will enrich us with your experience and ideas while at the same time acquiring new capacities and skills for yourself. We are maybe the hostel / farm that employ more volunteers in Nicaragua …..sometimes we are more than 15 people, so you can easily understand that volunteers are very important for us…..!!!!!
FREE FOOD AND FREE ACCOMMODATION VOLUNTEERING (MINIMUM 2 MONTHS STAY)
If you interested the best way to work here is to show up at the reception desk with 2 months time and speak with the volunteer coordinator, because we really prefer to speak with the people in person (not by email or Skype). Is important for the aspiring volunteers to see in person the place where is going to live for 2 months and if we fit together. We apologize but we can not reserve a position for volunteering, so the only way is to come here personally to reception.
IF YOU DO NOT HAVE 2 MONTHS TIME, BUT YOU WANT TO VOLUNTEER
As many people want to volunteer here but they do not have 2 months time, we introduce new deals: we ask 150 usd for 2 weeks volunteering sleeping in a Private tent ( Not our tent), 180 usd sleeping in our hammoch with mosquito net, and 240 usd for 2 week volunteering sleeping in a Dormitory with mosquito net. Those prices include the accommodation in a hammock or dormitory bed both with mosquito net and 3 meals a day ( breakfast you can choose what you want , and at lunch and dinner there is the volunteers menu). People choosing this option will work in different area of the farm and we will try to teach more things we can. Is a good opportunity for people interested in learning how a tropical farm/hostel is working and how to be sustainable . FOR THIS OPTION WE HAVE LOTS OF AVAILABILITY BUT WE PREFER TO SPEAK IN PERSON AND THAT YOU SEE THE PLACE WHERE YOU’LL LIVE A PART OF YOUR LIFE, SO IS BETTER TO COME HERE DIRECTLY THAN SEND EMAIL.
