Embark on an alternative spring break volunteer experience focused on learning about sustainable development and contributing towards vital development projects.
In the town of Quepos, a coastal community based at the entrance to Manuel Antonio National Park, partake in a variety of development programs dependent on the needs of the community at the time. Most programs will revolve around construction and restoration projects focused on community and educational centres.
In addition to contributing to a diverse range of projects you will also have time to explore the stunning area surrounding Quepos. The Pacific coast provides fantastic surf opportunities, the nearby jungles are full of incredible wildlife, and the surrounding towns provide a taste of typical Costa Rican culture.
In addition to educational opportunities to learn more about sustainable development there will also be organised reflection sessions where individuals will engage in critical conversations surrounding their involvement on the project, their perceived successes, and perceived areas for personal development.
Live in and explore a typical Costa Rican town; one that is close to exciting adventure activities but not located right on the typical backpackers route.
Create connections with the local community that are typically hard to develop in only a week, getting the chance to better know individuals providing a unique glimpse into ‘Tico’ culture.
