Come and enjoy the 'pura
vida' in
Costa Rica

The country that defines natural beauty

Our projects are based on a remote island on the shores of the Caribbean Ocean. You'll be surrounded by palm trees and wildlife as you spend your days and nights on the beautiful beaches! The local team run their own hostel in the centre of San Jose which is the perfect base for exploring other parts of the country (with many trips on offer) before or after your volunteering placement.

There is not a lot Costa Rica does not have! Home to lush green rain forests, booming active volcanoes, picturesque beaches and some of the most rare and endangered wildlife on the planet (boasting over 6% of the worlds wildlife population) – you’re guaranteed a great adventure.

Voted the happiest place on Earth multiple times, you will get to enjoy the 'tico' laid back lifestyle and enjoy the 'pura vida' (pure life).

Our programmes start on every Sunday between March and August and you can choose to join us from 1-16 weeks. 

Our structured and safe programmes makes volunteering in Costa Rica ideal for first time and / or solo travellers. Volunteering is the perfect way to meet like-minded people and allows you to explore Costa Rica as a group.

Enjoy the golden sands on the Pacific as you watch the sun setting behind the crystal clear waters or the powdery Caribbean beaches that are surrounded by candy-colored corals.

Costa Rica is famous for many things, but something that does not always get mentioned are their waterfalls. Due to the mountainous landscape and the steady flow of water from the rainforests, Costa Rica boasts thousands of waterfalls! With so many spread out across the country, it would be impossible to mention them all, however, there are a few that really stand out and are well worth a visit.
