We need volunteers to create a mountain camp/farm, to give opportunities to local and foreign people of enjoying nature and farm activities, and learn about Costa Rican traditions, including activities with indigenous communities.
What are you looking for help with?
- Animal keeping
- General Help
We offer practical Spanish lessons by talking every day.
Also, people will learn about Costa Rican traditions as the project by itself is about to create a lot of areas related with some local tradition, for example, we want to build a “trapiche” (a rustic system used to extract sugar cane).
The project is at the mountain, but volunteers will be able to go to the beach, as the owners live there. Both places are rural, so that increase the possibility of learning very traditional things (activities, food, etc). The local people are very kind and like to share experiences with visitors.
The project also includes to involve indigenous communities from the town into activities to share their culture to visitors, so one of the attracting thing for volunteers is to learn about their way of life, that is very interesting. They also talk about native dialect.
People also will learn to cook traditional food from Costa Rica.
Will have access to activities like:
- tropical dancing,
- free surf lessons,
- horseback riding,
- and a lot of entertainment.
