The Experience

Our organization is an environmental and animal-friendly zone in Costa Rica located in a hidden valley in the middle of a cloud forest. We are 15 friends of many years, vegan and animal lovers. We're an animal rescue center that has more than 700 dogs, cats, horses, ducks, goats, geese, hen and all the wildlife around. Come help us in the center by keeping it awesome! (:

Everyone at Lands In Love were super nice and treated you like family. The people who run the hotel/animal shelter are a group of 15 Israeli friends who care a lot about the animals. The work was very easy and consisted of walking dogs mostly. I really enjoyed my time at Lands In Love, made some really good friends, and all of the animals are super sweet and never fail to put a smile on your face.




La verdad pintan el voluntariado como algo hermoso, y al principio una lo ve así. pero las 5 horas de trabajo nunca son, porque no están repartidas todas juntas, sino que repartidas durante el día y se trabaja mucho más. se empieza a las 6:45 AM y no duermes en el hotel donde se trabaja, si no que lejos y para ir allá dependes que ellos te ponga. transporte y te llevan a la casa por la noche, pasado las 10. lo que hace más difícil la estadía es que para comer dependes enteramente del hotel (la locomoción es muy mala y está en medio de la nada, por lo tanto no te puedes cocinar si deseas)
