The name itself sums this country up perfectly. The direct translation of “Costa Rica” into English is Rich Coast. And rich it certainly is.

Boasting a staggering amount of wildlife, rainforests and stunning empty beaches, this country is a must-visit for those who are tempted with life off the beaten track and some hidden beauty. Whilst its main attractions are clear- hiking Arenal volcano, exploring the Monteverde rainforest and relaxing on its white sand beaches- the majority of our volunteers have described its remote and under-visited communities to be the highlight of their trips.

The Republic of Costa Rica is a flourishing country, proud to be one of the few countries in the world that does not have an army. Its people- known as Ticos- live at a relatively slow and welcoming pace of life. It doesn’t take long to embrace the relaxed and friendly lifestyle.

Although renowned for its biodiversity, sadly many of the creatures that live in this small republic are under threat. With both our short and long term volunteer projects in Costa Rica, you can make a genuine contribution to the continuation of the turtles, on some of the most breathtaking beaches that you will have ever seen.
