Help save Costa Rica’s endangered marine turtles through supporting at our small trendy San Jose city hostel in the most safe & hippest area with it’s dense concentration of Gastro Pubs, Bars and coffee shops. Our top rated hostel hosts international turtle volunteers who are transiting through San Jose on their way to and from our extremely popular community marine turtle program on the Caribbean coast.
For any volunteers committing to supporting us for a minimum of six weeks in the city they will receive the opportunity of participating for FREE as a volunteer at our community turtle volunteer program on an isolated island beach on the Caribbean Coast for 7 nights. (A saving of $346 usd which includes transportation, accommodation, training and three generous international meals daily.)
As a Workawayer you will enter in to a work exchange situation that will incur no fees neither at the hostel or turtle project.
