Mission Statement:

Costa Rica is a small nation in Central America which has become a poster child of ecotourism with over 24% of its land area covered with a well-established system of national parks and protected areas. It’s home to spectacular beaches, lush jungles, and a rich variety of flora and fauna. Costa Rica’s unofficial slogan is Pura Vida, which translates as “pure life”. Volunteering Abroad in Costa Rica is one sure way to truly experience it.

Our volunteering programs in Costa Rica are based in and around San Jose, the vibrant and bustling capital of Costa Rica. This is a charming place where you can explore historical monuments or exhilarating adventures including a great surf scene on the coasts. Besides this, Costa Ricans are extremely friendly and you will love the lip-smacking cuisines that are suited for everyone’s taste buds.

Philosophy/Belief Statement:

Exploring the country as a volunteer rather than as a tourist is a fun and memorable way to experience its culture and people while leaving a positive impact on its people. Costa Rica still battles with development issues such as poverty, domestic violence, trafficking and poaching. Helping the people fight any of these is a great way to contribute while you're on vacation. The country has numerous exciting volunteer opportunities for all age groups that include working with local communities, teaching and women empowerment programs, healthcare and medical placements, marine and sea turtle conservation. Volunteering Abroad in Costa Rica are flexible programs for participants looking to help in various projects with no or little prerequisites. Commitment is two week minimum at some projects and 4 weeks at others. We also encourage Volunteer Work Abroad in Costa Rica, family volunteering in Costa Rica.
