Travel-Barter Position

We're looking for a mature, experienced helper between December and April — someone interested in tropical living, travelling deeply, meeting people, and experiencing the Maya culture in a safe, quiet, non-touristic environment. This is a barter for accommodations, healthy food and local travel opportunities in exchange for helping out with customers at a small, established eco-cultural lodge. Our guests are active, fascinating and eco-conscious from around the world. Some hospitality or customer service experience is necessary but this work exchange could also be used to build up your resume while enjoying the tropical weather in lush, safe Yucatan.
