  • Beschreibung


    We are a couple (French and Costa Rican) who aims to turn the dream of living sustainably into a reality. We own a house near the town of Bribri and we have started all kind of projects such as creating a permaculture garden and renovating the house into a sustainable one. We're located between the sea, the mountains, and Indigenous protected areas, in a pretty quiet area of Costa Rica, surrounded by forests and rivers. It is a great place to enjoy peace and relax, while reconnecting to nature.

    We are looking for volunteers who have a positive work ethic and can contribute with enthusiasm their skills and ideas. They should also be interested in sustainability, the environment, and the idea of making a better world! We are currently only looking for short-term volunteers (about a week).
    We usually ask volunteers to work for about 3hours a day in exchange for free accommodation, but they have to be responsible for their own food expenses.
    As we are at the beginning of many projects, there are endless things that need to be done and you're welcome to jump in and help us!

    Please be aware that we live in a remote area and that we enjoy a very authentic and simple life. We'll welcome you with open arms, but you must know that our house does not have the luxury of an hotel. For example, we don't have hot water nor wifi. Also, if you don't have your own vehicle, it might not be the easiest for you to visit the surroundings and go out at night. You can go to Bribri or Puerto Viejo by bus or taxi, and we might be able to give you a ride from time to time, but the buses do not run at night.

    We are looking for relaxed helpers, who have a positive work ethic and can contribute with enthusiasm their skills and ideas.
    We usually ask volunteers to work for about 3hours a day. Depending on the projects that are being worked on at your arrival, you'll be able to join in that project or to work on a project of your own.

    We are currently renovating the house to make it more sustainable, planting vegetables and medicinal plants, starting a tree nursery, and work on all sorts of projects that require help. Whether you have artistic, gardening, construction or other skills, we can probably find something that you enjoy doing and that helps us at the same time!

    We're usually flexible with the volunteers timing and let them schedule their day.

    I lived in several countries and I'm fluent in French, English and Spanish. My boyfriend is from Costa Rica so he mainly speaks Spanish. We can teach you if you're interested!
