Volunteers’ benefits:

Volunteering here is a great way to immerse yourself into three worlds simultaneously.

  • 1. You get to help side by side with our local team. You will get to practice your Spanish and experience the Pura Vida.
  • 2. Being a yoga retreat, you will be immersed in yoga for the length of time that you stay here.
  • 3. You are immersed in a jungle paradise. Blue Osa is located right next to the Corcovado National Park, which is said to contain 2.5% of all the earth’s bio diversity.



Blue Osa is located about 8 miles (11 km) south of Puerto Jimenez on the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica. Known for its rich bio-diversity and stunning natural beauty, the region has been called the most biologically intense places on Earth by National Geographic. Blue Osa is nestled near Corcovado National Park and the warm shores of the Gulfo Dulce — the perfect place to see endangered rainforest plants and animals.

Volunteers Benefits

In yogic philosophy, being a volunteer, or offering service, is one of the highest forms of yoga practice. The Sanskrit word for volunteering is “seva”. Seva basically means to offer service and to do so mindfully with non-attachment.

In deep gratitude for offering service to Blue Osa and our community, our promise is to provide:

  • Upon your arrival and departure, ground transportation to and from Puerto Jimenez
  • 3 healthy delicious meals daily
  • Private accommodations in our staff quarters
  • Yoga classes when offered.

Please Keep In MInd
  • Non-Paying

This is a non-paying position. It is a volunteer position. If you ask, we will immediately discontinue any correspondence. Please do not email us telling us about the skills you have that we are not looking for in our yoga retreat in Costa Rica.

  • Are You A Yoga Teacher?

Although not always, we generally look for volunteers who are able to teach yoga. If you are a yoga teacher, you will usually, but not always, be more likely to be considered.

  • Please do not be offended…

Please do not be offended if we do not respond. If we do not, it means that we are currently full and do not need your services.
