The Camp in Jakera is a very nice place that is situated between palms, trees and a river. Next to the family's two lovely dogs and a cat, howler monkeys, squirrels, iguanas, all kinds of birds and many animals more are your direct neighbors. The Host-family and staff is very cheerful, caring and happy to help with everything. The best thing though is the great food that is freshly made every day and is of great variation and flavour. Shoutout to chef Maikol who wouldn't miss the chance to swing the spoon with a little dance move!
In the 4 weeks Program, I experienced a lot of unique things that I haven't done before, such as surfing on beautiful playa hermosa, practising yoga at the beachfront or volunteering at the local community and recycling center. One of the highlights was the 4-days trip to Monteverde, where we saw the raw beauty of the cloud forest and got our adrenaline kicks at the longest ziplining cable in Latin America. In the turtle project, we rescued several hundres of turtle eggs from thieves and could even touch the wild turtles, an experience that I will never forget.
I enjoyed myself a lot during the last four weeks and am happy to have collected so many nice memories of this beautiful country. Whoever wants to learn some spanish, do something nice for the enivornment and the community and experience an unforgettable time is totally right at Jakera Costa Rica.
