Work Exchange in Uruguay
El Diablo Tranquilo, in the bohemian seaside village of Punta del Diablo in Uruguay, has been creating memories as a welcoming home for guests and staff alike for 10 years and is looking forward to continuing that tradition.
Our reputation as a leading boutique hostel has been built on the importance we place on the experience, whether just visiting or living here for a season or longer. We constantly strive to blur the lines between guests and staff and create meaningful relationships for guests and provide a context for our staff to grow personally and professionally.
Our hostel is made up of three buildings, a beachfront restaurant and hostel on one property and a larger hostel and staff housing just two blocks away. The pueblo is extremely seasonal, with up to 30,000 visitors joining the 2,500 year-round inhabitants for the very peak season. Though we do generate the vast majority of our revenue during a relatively short season, our business is one of the few that operates consistently throughout the whole year. This ebb and flow allows each season to be approached as a unique challenge and enough peace and relaxation during the winter months to offset the frenetic pace of the short summer.
Spend three to six months working in a crew of 30+, split roughly 50/50 between local and international staff – developing a personal project or simply enjoying the season and immersing yourself in a new culture.
