The Place and The People
From January to July, we are based on the Caribbean coast. Venture to a rustic fishing village where leatherback sea turtles lay their eggs on picturesque beaches. Listen to the sounds of howler monkeys and be on the lookout for sloths and toucans as we make our way through the lush mountains to the coast.
From July to December, we are based on the Nicoya peninsula in the Pacific Ocean. This is one of the most breathtaking parts of the country and is home to sea turtles, ocelots, monkeys and many other animals. The trip starts in Liberia and takes you to the pristine beaches of the Nicoya peninsula, immersing you in a kaleidoscope of wildlife, beaches and rainforests.
Regardless of the location, on this volunteer vacation to Costa Rica you will meet inspirational environmentalists, immerse yourself in the local culture and see a slice of Costa Rica that most travelers never visit.
