Gracias por la visita fue lindo conocerte , PURA VIDA 🇨🇷🫶🏻☀️



It's a good and relax place with a nice garden very close to the beach. I enjoyed being close to nature, the jungle and seeing different kinds of animals. The tasks were easy and the schedule was good too. We were a small team and I spend a good time with everybody.

Gracias por tu hermosa visita, difícil comunicarnos , prometo aprender bien Ingles bien y un día poder hablar contigo. Saludos PURA VIDa ❤️



I applied for a volunteering job in the field of arts. I was supposed to make Art(Wallpainting, Grafitti,Sculpturing) , and on some days, when there would be nothing to do in the field of art, I was asked to help around the hotel. Out of 30 days, I painted 1 day. On the rest of the days, I cleaned the kitchen, the hotel rooms, the garden and helped around the hotel. The owner was most of the time pretty relaxed and the work wasn't hard at all. Sometimes we only worked for one hour per day and every week we had 2 days off. You also get discount on tourist activities in the area….
