Your tasks in the national park project in Costa Rica:
Volunteers help for between 3-6 hours every day.

The entire site is a protected area, so the project has more regulations to ensure the protection of the animals. Please note that you are in a national park, accommodation is open and airy and therefore animals can also visit.

Costa Rica is a safe country and the people are very friendly and warmhearted. In big cities, as in every big city in the world, there is petty crime. When travelling, the following things should be taken into account: always keep an eye on valuables, always keep your hand luggage on your lap in buses, and at night you should not travel by bus or withdraw money from ATMs. Up-to-date information on the situation can be found at the Embassy or Foreign Office.

Please note that in Costa Rica all electronic devices can only be used with an adapter. They are available in many electronics stores.

Depending on the program, we work with host families in the vicinity or there are volunteer houses at the project site.
