Dantica is looking for a manager couple to run our eco-lodge high in the beautiful Costa Rican mountains for a period of one year or more, starting around half May - beginning of June 2014. We offer a salary for both persons, plus housing based on full-pension. Languages: English and Spanish required, German, French and/or Dutch a plus.

Managing our lodge includes receiving the guests and escort them to their Bungalows, serving in our restaurant Le Tapir, selling in our large art gallery, arranging and reserving tours, managing employees and taking care of our social media. The Lodge is situated high up in the mountains, this means a fresh to cold climate, and it is remote (an hour drive to the nearest village). Some Bungalows are in the forest (500 meters from the reception/restaurant), so a good physical condition is also required. High season is July - August (moderate) and December - April, the rest of the year is low season.
