About El Hotelito Perdido
El Hotelito Perdido is a small, rustic jungle hideaway. It is located in the middle of the rainforest on Río Lampara, a small river connected to Río Dulce.
We are across the river from the Hot Springs, close to a waterfall and a short journey from Manatee Reserve and Cayo Quemado. By boat we are a 45-minute ride from the town of Río Dulce and a 30-minute trip through the humbling Canyon Río Dulce to the funky Garifuna town of Livingston.
Our lodge is built in the typical jungle style. The accomodation we provide ranges from a small two-bed "dormitory" to cozy split-level bungalows equipped with a toilet and shower. We offer drinks, restaurant services (breakfast, lunch and dinner) and make our own bread.
We do our best to minimise our impact on our environment. Our electricity is provided by solar panel, we’ve employed ecological building practices and we are consciously helping to reforest the jungle. We also collect rainwater for bathing, buy minimal packaged food for cooking, make compost for our gardens, recycle our plastic and reuse anything we can.
We're looking for a responsible and enthusiastic traveller willing to stay for at least four weeks as a volunteer. In exchange for work (cooking, looking after reception, landscaping or carpentry) we will provide food, accommodation and a peaceful experience in the jungle. If you're interested, please come, stay with us and let us know if you like to volunteer. You can give us a call if you need more information.
