Best Job Ever? A Costa Rica Luxury Internship

0x600

The Costa Rica based Cayuga Collection, nine award-winning eco- lodges, resorts and hotels in different regions of Costa Rica and Nicaragua, is looking for qualified interns to help perfect delivery of its high-end hospitality.

While age doesn’t matter, attitude does. Their 2013 Eco-Internship is a working vacation in a country of enormous biodiversity and natural beauty.  Help with recycling, composting, beach cleanups, local schools and charities. Conservation help is also needed with tree planting and wild cat tracking.

And here is the best part: interns are needed to test the bedding, the hotel amenities, the food, and even check out spa services.  Selected interns will not be paid but accommodations are free, as are meals, tours and services as company’s basic premise is thoroughly tested: ecotourism tourism can also be luxurious.

“Our goal is to attract discerning interns who can help us ensure that we deliver that perfect blend of sustainable hospitality and luxury,” says Hans Pfister, co-founder and president of the Cayuga Collection. “Every year, we welcome young interns who work hard on our programs; but now we need a well-travelled person or couple who can test our blend of high-end service and responsible tourism.”
