Volunteer Programs in Costa Rica

Enjoy the beauty of Costa Rica while volunteering your time in one of the many volunteer programs available in this tropical paradise. Discover the joy of giving, in a cultural exchange with an added dose of fun thrown in. Learn new skills while being in touch with nature. 

Your participation in one of our volunteer programs will provide a real and tangible benefit to someone or something in particular that would not have been possible by any other means.  You can contribute your time and efforts in the construction of public works in rural  communities, or donate your skills in teaching a language such as English, German, or Italian. Or you can offer your services in projects that protect the environment. You can even donate your efforts to protect species in danger of extinction like the giant sea turtles, who lay their eggs on our beaches. Or the great green macaw. You can donate your medical services, or just help a real family in need, or an institution that provides community benefits.

You will realize many benefits for yourself while donating your time in one of these worthwhile programs. You will learn something of the culture of Costa Rica, learn teamwork, meet many new friends who will be with you for years to come, and have satisfying experiences to remember for a lifetime.

Check out our list of volunteer programs that are available and pick out one that fits your interests.
