Learning & Fun




Estuve en la casa 2 meses.

Pros: me gustó el proyecto. Sobre todo la limpieza de playa y participar en los colegios.
He conocido a mucha gente y he compartido momentos inolvidables.

Contras: la organización no es su fuerte.
Los managers pueden almorzar y entrar en la cocina pero yo no estaba autorizada.
Incomodidad al escuchar discusiones de pareja.
Eché de menos mejor trato de los managers, sobre todo pq convivía con ellos.
Había pulgas en la habitación y tuve erupciones graves en la piel.
La comida solo hidratos. No proteína para vegetarianos.
Staff sobrecargado.

Gracias x la experiencia!

It was such a good experience to stay and learn so much in this paradise
The team is lovely and it’s calm, in the middle of the jungle, Puerto Viejo is a nice place to stay
I’ve worked in the locals schools and did amazing workshops for the kids about environmental consciousness
I really liked working in team and be free about the content/ how to run a workshop and be creative
Thanks a lot
Pura Vida 🤍

Muchas gracias Tip for your support during this time. You were a very calm addition to the team in the bbeginning but I think the progress you've made was notable for everyone. The workshops turned out very nicely thanks to your creativity and kindness with the kids Good luck with everything and hasta pronto 💚

We loved our stay at Planet conservation, a fun place with lots going on, staying a long time is a real benefit so you can enjoy the freedom of taking ownership of projects your working on and getting involved in the community. It takes a week to settle in and find your role but once you are settled you will feel part of the casa caribe family.

Beate y Federico están todo el día haciendo de ese lugar más lindo. Al principio puede ser un poco difícil entender tus tareas, pero con el pasar de los días te acomodas como en tu casa. Si tienen dudas, pregunten!!Siempre habrá una respuesta.

Good experience overall. The hostel is stunning and the food is so good. Good environment with the managers and cool vibes with the other volunteers. Pretty far from everything tho (beach and supermarket are like 15 minutes walk)
