Want to spend 2 months learning more about insects and arachnids while hanging out in Costa Rica for free?

The Monteverde Butterfly Gardens has been teaching people about insects and arachnids for 20 years! Volunteers from all over the world are trained to guide people through 4 butterfly habitats, a leaf cutter ant colony and a collection of live insects and arachnids from Costa Rica. The Monteverde Butterfly Gardens works hard every day to develop understanding and tolerance towards the many different arthropods we have living on the planet.

You will be trained on-site to deliver 1-hour English tours through our gardens. Once you are trained, you will guide 1-4 tours per day. Other duties include watching front desk, general care and maintenance of the facilities, work in our gardens collecting eggs and caterpillars, helping care for the chickens and tilapia, and also tending to the vegetable gardens. You will work 6 out of 7 days from 8:00am to 4pm.
