    Description

    The camp is a calm, eco-sustainable place where you can get in touch with nature and with Costa Rica´s rural community. It´s perfect if you wanna take some time off the city, be sorrounded by tropical flora, meet awesome people (locals and other volunteers) while also helping a new proyect grow. Our proyect is about giving people a different option when choosing where to have their vacation, helping the community by giving English classes to children and job opportunities to the locals within the project and also being eco-mindful in all our activities (planting trees, taking care of rivers, and being careful with natural resources), all of this while having an all inclusive Christian approach, slogan is: Faith, Planet and Community
    If you sign up to be a volunteer here you are helping the population of Perez Zeledón and also help our proyect grow so we an give more people our help!

    In your freetime you could go to take a swim in our natural pool, take a walk in our coffee or avocado plantings, paint rocks artistically, and if you want something not so calm you could go fish on a restaurant nearby where they cook for you what you fished or take a bus to the center of the city. The beaches are an hour and a half from the finca and there´s also waterfalls and local atractions like an underground house that you can visit on your free time.
