Naturaleza De Pacuare

We are looking for easy-going and open-minded people to create a vibrant environment and share our experiences with.

We made this program to keep the island clean and fight plastic pollution! What gets washed up from the sea, also goes back if not picked up, not only causing contamination in the water, but endangering marine animals. We clean our beaches, paths and jungles not only to preserve nature, but also to help our local people live in a cleaner and healthier environment!

During your time here you'll be doing a variety of things, for example gardening, working on art projects, building with bamboo, cleaning the beach, helping out the locals with their daily works and many other things!

We are working daily not only on bettering our environment but also on making sure our volunteers are having the most enjoyable time while doing it!

Our team is made up of locals and long-term international volunteers who are here to make sure you’re getting the best value out of your stay making it one of the best experiences of your life!

I had a really great time at this place. It is an experience, which you definitely can’t get everywhere. You are on an island far from everything. In the middle of the nature. The place you stay is very basic which I loved because it feels like you really get to know the Costa Rican life. It was a very nice community with the other travelers and Barbara of course ;) The working hours are not too much and you have a lot of time to read and relax at the beach.

Super fulfilling experience. If you want to unplug for few weeks and living truly on nature’s term, this is the spot! I already miss the host Barbara so much :,)

It was a really nice experience at Barbara's and Alex' place!
I really liked to be a bit disconnected from the world. The work was fine and various. We had a lot of freetime.

But, it would have been good to know, that the transportation is not included to the island.

I really enjoyed being there and being part of the project, but it’s much too expensive for what it is, the place is calm and peaceful, it’s really sweet.

But $25/d is too much, especially that we must also pay for the boat trip to their home 25000rcr (their boat) and that we dont have the right to pay less if we are several (and that she has been snobbing me since I asked her to reimburse me when she told me that she would contact me again)

the equipment to work is either in poor condition or non-existent

And there has been no volleyball since long time🥲
But it was good
