I applied to volunteer at Rancho Margot because I wanted to go somewhere where I could learn about sustainability, do yoga/get healthy, and practice my Spanish. I was not disappointed! First of all, Rancho Margot is beautiful - there are multiple hiking paths, a rushing river, and plenty of plants and animals to admire. Secondly, I learned so much from the volunteering tasks and got to practice my Spanish with the workers daily. Lastly, they really allow you to make your volunteer experience yours - many did their own projects and schedules were flexible to allow you to enjoy your experience.

Experiencia mas que recomendada. Trabajando 6 horas al dia entre animales, plantas, lluvia, limpieza, "ticos", turistas y gente de todo el mundo. Es importante saber que llueve mucho y si bien las comodidades estan todas al alcance del voluntario el mismo debe ir preparado a trabajar con ganas en lo que sea que le toque, con quien sea, a aprender y compartir con la gente local (recomendadisimo) es uno de las pocas oportunidades de conocer realmente la cultura del país. dificil expresar con palabras lo vivido, pero repito, depende mucho tambien de la voluntad y las ganas de cada uno

As soon as I arrived at Rancho Margot I felt at home, the place is amazing at first glance and it just keeps on getting better. I feel so grateful for everything, the yoga lessons twice a day, the amazing and clean food and all the love I received ❤️ They always need people that are willing to help! I totally recommend volunteering at Rancho Margot, even more so if you have a particular project you can help with (I helped with architecture and design)

Rancho Margot has been an incredible experience for me! From the moment I arrived, the whole staff was sweet and helpful. The Ranch has an amazing project going on, it is really an inspirational environment and will change your life! I worked with the maids, kitchen, in the garden, and taught English to the kids in the next town over. I was able to practice my Spanish MUCHO! I wouldn't trade my time spend here for anything else in the world. Thank you Ivannia and the staff of Rancho Margot for an amazing month!
