Experience la pura vida in beautiful Costa Rica! Do you love to be outside all day long, experience new cultures and cuisines, meet new people, and work hard on a team? Lend us a hand at the Sarapiqui Outdoor Center, a constantly growing whitewater center, located right on the Sarapiqui River in La Virgen, Heredia. Volunteers should come pre-equipped with swiftwater rescue knowledge and skills and the ability to teach/guide class 3/4 whitewater kayaking. As in any outdoor position, flexibility and the ability to stay calm in high-pressure situations is a must. All volunteers are expected to be on time, be customer service-oriented, work as a team, and follow instructions.
