You will meet new people and can immerse yourself in pristine wilderness and genuine Costa Rican culture. Our successful strategy works to combine environmental education and conservation activities to give local communities a viable socioeconomic alternative to poaching sea turtle eggs and other wildlife.

Volunteer opportunities outside of daily tasks include:

-Learn Spanish with our staff

-Teach English to our staff and other volunteers

-Find solace in wildlife

-Pristine Hiking through jungle trails

About Our Program:

Volunteers receive free accommodation in our dorms with one day off per week. Volunteers work for shifts of 4 hours. The minimum stay for volunteers is 2 weeks.

What about Free Time?

We know that volunteers come not only to work but also to discover the incredible nature. The project offers the possibility of unforgettable tours and activities such as kayaking, horseback riding, rural tourism and farm activities.  In the Osa Peninsula you can take trips to Isla del Cano and Corcovado National Park, or simply hiking around on surrounding rainforest trails… countless opportunities for the nature-lover.  

Important Note:

There are no ATMs in any of the places, so we recommend that volunteers travel with enough cash for possible tours. If you want to buy snacks or sweets, better buy them in San José or on the way to the project.
