Costa Rica's Pacific coast is a treasure trove of water-based activities: the surfing, tubing, kayaking, hot spring-soaking and snorkeling here is top-notch! Spend two weeks living and working in the Guanacaste region, where you'll dedicate your time to working alongside a local NGO to support this coastline, as well as lend a hand in infrastructure projects in local school and community athletic fields. Stay active while exploring the biodiverse natural world that surrounds you and learn more about Tico culture through structured workshops and immersion in the community.

Yes, I recommend this program

Amazing experience!!

There were so many things I was looking forward to with this trip: new friends, new adventure experience, and meaningful volunteer work and relationships. All of those I can say with 100% certainty that I got on this trip. There was no stress on this trip, you are able to relax as you walk around the beautiful home-base with mangos and star fruits growing around you. There are so many fun people to talk to, whether they are on your trip, or just people that live in the country. I am so appreciative that I was able to go on this trip, and would do it again any day!!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Have no fear, and make relationships with anyone and everyone you see. I was able to create really meaningful relationships with the bus drivers, conversing with them in Spanish and helping them out a bit with English.
  • Food was incredible, and made fresh at home base every meal.
  • Great surfing instructors
  • Beautiful home base and country
