Costa Rica voluntary work
DescriptionCosta Rica is recognized as an ecotourism paradise. This country is also characterized by the impressive beauty of its landscapes, its already consolidated system of protected areas, the social and political stability, a high educational level, the efficiency and the quality of its services.
Ticos or Costa Ricans have developed community organizations to ensure the sustainable development of their protected areas. It is in the area of Quebrada Grande and Santa Elena about 90 minutes north of San José that we invite you to discover these community organizations. The main areas of intervention are: forest protection, ecological reconstruction, mixed gardens, promotion of cultural ecotourism and environmental education.
Participants will be given a few hours of (informal) Spanish classes to better understand the guidelines during community involvement. The host families are middle class and offer standard quality accommodation. A Costa Rican tour leader is also available during the trip.
