Do you have what it takes to be a hands-on working couple (or individual) at an off-the-grid cowboy-style guest ranch in the tropics? If so, we want to hear from you.

We are looking for candidates to begin as early as next month, but internships are staggered.

This is not an offer for a Job. Rancho Chilamate offers housing, food, access to transportation, a monthly stipend… and some cowboyin’ fun. We are an intimate Solar powered Guest Ranch offering guided horse back tours with 4 rooms for overnight guests.
Be sure to check out the rest of our website to acquaint yourself with the ranch.

What we are looking for someone:

*who has experience in hospitality and enjoy the hosting international guests. You love people and would enjoy the role of ranch host.
*you must love the kitchen and cooking up meals for up to 15 people ~ with knowledge of menu planning and costing. You will be responsible for prepping and hosting nightly dinners.
*You can drive a ‘manual shift’ vehicle. General responsibilities including daily errands to town and pick up and delivery of guests.
*Candidate(s) should have intermediate or higher level Spanish, be very comfortable in nature, and be interested in exploring a sustainable, off-grid lifestyle.
*You are well traveled and comfortable living in a foreign culture. Ideally this is not your first time to Central America.
*You really enjoy photography and are willing to photograph our tours and do post editing of the images.

The ranch is located 20 minutes from the surf beach town of San Juan del Sur. Couple will be required to host guests at the Ranch in addition to some administration work. Hours are by no means fixed. Board, accommodation and access to transport are included as well as a basic stipend after completion of training.
