    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Volunteering here is a great way to immerse yourself into three worlds simultaneously.

    1. You get to help side by side with our local team. You will get to practice your Spanish and experience the Pura Vida.

    2. Being a yoga retreat, you will be immersed in yoga for the length of time that you stay here.

    3. You are immersed in a jungle paradise. We are located right next to the Corcovado National Park, which is said to contain 2.5% of all the earth's bio diversity.
