Regardless of which theme you choose from our list of Costa Rica volunteer programs, everyone will experience the volunteer highlights as a team.

Sleep under the stars while sharing a beautiful beach with turtles! Work side by side with experts as you collect data on mother turtles, their babies and beach preservation for nesting.

Learn how to build treehouses, eco-homes, bathrooms and cooking ovens from natural materials. Courses on building tree houses with simple and effective ways to conserve energy, water, and resources.

Build greenhouses to grow fruits and vegetables. Raise cows, pigs, and chickens. Create organic oils, soaps and more. Discover how to turn waste into life through composting.
