  • Description


    We are a local couple living in the amazing place of Barra de Pacuare in Caribbean coast of Costa Rica, between sea, jungle and river. We work together in our shop. We usually pay local people to work for us when we go to the city for supply and also when we do construction work.

    Pacuare is a very small, remote place type Island.
    We have a nice place with a big garden where we welcome people because we have a small neighborhood grocery store. We can also host. We offer comfortable corners, music, and games.

    We are surrounded by other volunteering projects, mostly about animal care (sea turtles, manatees, monkeys, ...), so we meet international people all year long.
    We want to develop our place on the most sustainable way possible because we want to be part of biodiversity protection.

    We love nature and have lot of animals (cats, dogs, pigs, goose...). We also like fishing around.
    We leave the island at least once a week for our supply so we can get anything we need. Boat trips are an amazing part of our local life.

    Only Kolbi SIM cards can be used here. We have a litle bit of wifi.

    It is a very remote place so bring books, games, download movies if you like.

    You can also bring some snacks and repellent.

    Sea Turtle season started!!!

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    Travelers will be in touch with the real Costa Rican culture, with Pura Vida and Caribbean way of life. They will practice their Spanish and learn how to cook some local food. They will learn to dance with locals.
    Learning how to build with only local materials is also an amazing experience.
    On a general way, they will discover so much about nature, animals, biodiversity (we can see 3 of the 4 monkeys species we find in Costa Rica, sloth, birds, crocodiles...). Many plants are also very specific.
    People staying with us will also meet many local people and others for all around the world.
