Volunteers will sleep in the "octaraña", a tree-like open round construction that holds a dormitory with beds and hammocks. There is also plenty of space to camp on the land.
Food is predominantly plant-based and organic where possible. There will be 3 meals a day; cooking and eating together.
There is no WiFi in here yet... but phones have excelent reception
It is located in a wonderful mountainous landscape surrounded with 360 degrees of stunning forest views. There are some beautiful rivers nearby to go swimming on hot days.
The closest towns around are Atenas and Orotina, which are well connected to San José (ca. 1h ride to the central bus station called "Coca Cola"). I will pick you up at either of these locations to bring you to here, ca. 15 min. drive away.
