  • Description


    You will get to live in paradise. The remote pristine beaches and rainforest of Costa Rica are rich with wildlife. I am looking for a volunteer that can commit for 2 week minimum if we are a good fit. You will reconnect with nature while hosting tourists from all over the world that have come to visit Corcovado National Park. The 11 room eco-lodge offers clients a quiet experience in nature with tours, restaurant, boats, kayaks, swimming pool, private beach. This is a family run business. The family started the project in the late 1980's and the project has become an established business and community leader. The project supports all of the local schools, the local clinic, police station, conservation area, private reserves and local initiatives with planning and zoning. We are considered leaders in Costa Rica tourism. We only hire local people and we offer positions to international volunteers and students to supplement the dedication of our core team. Our full time local staff consists of 40 members. Working with our team will offer volunteers the opportunity to practice Spanish and have a cultural experience.
    Smokers need not apply.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The project is a short walk to a authentic village. There is a clinic, school, small shops, and cafes in the village. The coastal trail begins right at our doorstep. There are no ATMs in our community. There are public water taxis to reach the project twice a day from a larger community. There is one of the premier national parks just minutes away. There is also a marine reserve ideal for snorkeling and SCUBA diving. We are fortunate to live and breath in such pure nature. We hope that travelers that come to the project will be adventurous, love to be outside and be physically fit in order to enjoy the area. The main mode of transportation is walking up and down trails.
