It's true - there are some pretty amazing volunteer jobs in Costa Rica - opportunities to not only learn even more about this gorgeous country, but at the very same time...
To lend a helping hand.
How would you like to work up close and personal with sea turtles?
Your duties would include things like patrolling the beaches for newly arriving mothers, relocating egg clutches - to protect from rising tides and predators, and releasing newborn babies, into the ocean.
What an educational, rewarding, and INCREDIBLE! experience that would be...
And it's just one of the many different chances - learning about ecosystems and the environment, meeting really interesting people, and living the unique 'pura vida' lifestyle.
But how do you do it?
Well first thing - some excellent volunteer programs exist in Costa Rica, ones that recruit people (you!) from all over the world.
A couple that come to mind for example, are:
ACI - Intercambio, Cultural & Voluntariado...
...and ASVO - the Association of Volunteers for Service of Protected areas.
Through programs such as these - volunteers are connected to various projects - organic farms, sanctuaries, national parks, and others.
