Stay and experience a volunteer vacation in a village adjacent to the Carara Biological Reserve, one of Costa Rica's most biologically-diverse National Parks. This spectacular rainforest has an enormous variety of plants, birds and animals, including Scarlet Macaws.
Costa Rica is a cultural and natural paradise, but most travelers only see its impersonal and touristy side. Globe Aware's Costa Rica volunteer travel programs offer a unique opportunity to help small communities improve their well being and create a sustainable future in ecologically important areas.

Caribbean community is surrounded by water on all sides and hosts a wealth of natural resources, including sandy beaches where sea turtles nest. The local people are hoping to foster community development and pride by improving common facilities and infrastructure. They also hope to improve livelihoods by finding alternatives to poaching endangered sea turtles and their eggs. Volunteers will work together with local community members to help with projects that they choose as important.
Volunteers will be housed in the lovely “casona,” a four bedroom three bathroom house located right on the beach. Meals will be eaten with local families, and a wide variety of fresh fish, beans, rice, and fruit will be available.
