Volunteer Caretaker Position on Private Caribbean island (Belize)

We need someone in good physical condition who feels confident living with Piggy, a free living, dominant non castrated pig, on a remote island in simple environment. Frugal dealing with recourses is required as electricity comes from solar system and drinking and using water from rain water harvest.

Accommodation for you is a little wooden beach hut with comfortable queen sized bed, kitchen corner with 2 burner gas stove and basic equipment.
Your job would be: Being present at the island 7/24, cleaning the beaches and trails, watering the plants, moving some timber or seaweed and other small maintenance jobs.

In your spare time you could watch the stars, sunsets, dolphins and rays, explore the island, go snorkeling or fishing around the island, find meditation or yoga spots or just seize the day.

Internet and cellphone service on the island.
All supplies you need, you have to bring when coming in a hired motorboat from the mainland. There is no delivery service!

The little wooden hut was rented out to tourists. Everything is very simpel and rustic. You feel every weather with all your senses. Wind and water can spray through the plancs when the storm blows heavily but it is the most refreshing place when the sun shines. You have direct access to the sea through the backdoor. If you leave your food open, ants will come... Sometimes the beach may be covered with seaweed.

Shower and dish washing is outside. Compost toilet. Sandflies when wind is down. Right clothing, shutting shutters or Mosquito Coils do a good job.
