Meet the team in Costa Rica
Where we are based in Costa Rica
During your voluntary work in Costa Rica, you’ll be living in either Heredia or Barra Honda National Park. We have dedicated full-time staff in both locations, so you’ll have plenty of support no matter where you’re based.
The city of Heredia, where most of our projects are based, is situated in the heart of Costa Rica’s coffee-growing country. With its large student population and close proximity to the exciting capital city of San Jose, Heredia has an active cultural and social scene.
You can easily reach the impressive Poas and Irazu volcanoes on a day-trip from Heredia. Many other popular tourist destinations, such as Arenal volcano and Monteverde cloud forest, are only a bus ride away.
The Conservation Project in Costa Rica is based in Barra Honda National Park. You’ll be living and working at the wildlife reserve, which is about a 25-minute drive from the nearest town.
This location is ideal for you if you’re a nature lover looking to take a break from fast-paced daily life. Your free time will be filled with scenic hikes and board games with your fellow volunteers, with the lush forest as your backdrop. For the more adventurous, the network of underground caves and caverns is a highlight.
Safety and staff support
Your safety and security is our prime concern. We have many procedures and systems to ensure you have the support you need to enjoy your trip with peace of mind. Our Projects Abroad staff are available 24 hours a day to help, and will be on-hand to make sure you settle in well at your accommodation and placement. If you encounter any problems, they will be available to help at any time.
