Program Details

Volunteers offer their time (36 hours weekly) in exchange for full room & board and the absolutely amazing lifestyle of our Ranch in the middle of the rainforest.
Please keep in mind that this is not an educational program, so we do not provide volunteers with extensive training or take time out of work hours to teach. The learning component will be a result of your daily tasks in the farm.

Activities & Shift

Each morning, volunteers are assigned tasks according to the needs of the Ranch, and they often include duties such as gardening, sweeping the paths, cleaning the bar, doing dishes, teaching English, housekeeping, etc.
Schedule is usually from Monday thru Saturday from 8.30 to 3 pm, but hours can be flexible as well.
Yoga is offered at 4 p.m.


Drinking and smoking are not allowed in the dorms area.
Silence time at the rooms from 10 pm. to 6 am.
This program is a 4 week commitment. If a person decides to leave earlier, there will be a charge starting from $35 to $15 per night.
