Work at The Salty Pelican, is a great opportunity to work and live in a friendly atmosphere where you can meet people from all over the world.

You will also have the chance to join our yoga and meditation programs and meditation hikes or tours when you are not scheduled to work. 


The Salty Pelican prefers to accept participants who are students or long-term travellers who are equally interested in exploring a new place as well as contributing to The Salty Pelican vibe by supporting our awesome team.

Work  Each week you'll work in the areas of front desk and general duties including helping to organize groups into their daily activities and group dinner evenings. No cleaning shifts are required ;-) Just general upkeep of our properties. 


Play    In addition, because employees spend so much time on-site, they are often available to participate in retreat outings like evening dinners in our garden or joining our meditation hike or other activities and tours where available.
