Volunteer in Costa Rica Most national parks offers on-site shared volunteer accommodations. These living conditions are basic but clean and comfortable. Running water is available and communal washrooms. Meals are provided 3 times a day (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) including beans, rice, grains, meat, and vegetable. This is a rustic, adventure location and requires people about o adapt to the basic conditions. A two-week minimum program is required for a maximum of 6 weeks.
Our projects are open to students studying; or those with a keen interest, biology, marine life, animal welfare and conservation efforts around the World. Volunteering in the National Parks of Costa Rica help to solve some of the issues related to the lack of personnel and budget cutbacks that the Costa Rican's government has to face every year. We know that volunteers play a vital role in the conservation efforts: without outside assistance, these projects would be lost. Come join us and make a difference!

With the collaboration of volunteers through internship projects we get the chance to continually improve the development of the investigation projects, pursuing conservation of resources in areas of biological importance in the Central American tropics. We need people who want to have a rewarding experience doing an internship or a gap year project on behalf of the natural resources of Costa Rica and the world. It is also a great opportunity to learn about the culture, language, food and hospitality of Costa Rica in the Latin American context.
