Programa detallado

You’ll share a room with a bathroom with other volunteers. Breakfast and dinner are included in your stay and we can accommodate alimentary meal plans upon request. We are located in the jungle just inland from Playa Cocles, a short way from Puerto Viejo. We have a social, yet quiet and private atmosphere. Our facilities include a large open air dining area, a swimming pool, and a yoga deck where you also can relax in a hammock. There are generally 20 – 35 people staying with us at a time plus our family of 5, our dogs and coco the cat.

Actividades & Turnos

We'd expect you to support us between 5 hours per day 5 days a week. This might include a weekend day as many guests arrive Sundays. You’ll have kitchen shift (cook dinner, prepare breakfast) and help us to maintain the common areas clean and tidy. General office help should be no problem for you, e.g. making copies, ordering, etc. You will have ample opportunity to practice your Spanish. For those staying longer, you can take Spanish classes at our school when there is space. We have weekly yoga and Latin dance classes here on the property free of charge. Also we appreciate help with our plastic free campaign and our environmental kids club. There is lots to explore in the surrounding area as well. Puerto Viejo offers surfing, wildlife, music, local markets, and plenty of great restaurants.


We are looking for conscious people to support our projects and therefor we will select participants that value nature and a healthy life style and can commit to a longer period of time. We welcome volunteers that are friendly, flexible and independent - willing to support us.
