Our Locations in Costa Rica... and we're constantly adding new projects!
The Osa Peninsula is located in the southwestern part of Costa Rica within the Puntarenas Province. The largest town is Puerto Jimenez closely connected to two little coastal villages Carate and Matapalo.
Projects we offer in Puerto Jimenez are: Solar Power Project – A Hands on Workshop, Dog and Cat Rescue, Reforestation Projects, Teaching Children, Environmental Education, Veterinary Clinic Volunteer, Bird Conservation, and Green Life Volunteers’ Internship.
San Isidro del General
One of our project locations is San Isidro del Genera in the canton of Perez Zeledon in the southern part of the province of San Jose in Costa Rica. It is also the biggest city in Perez Zeledon. The city is located at 130 km from San Jose and 212 km from the boarder to Panama in the South. It’s a diverse and culturally rich city.
This is where we send volunteers to our partnering Spanish School – one of the best and most affordable programs in the country!
On the Nicoya Peninsula we offer two project locations at the moment – Montezuma and Ostional. Both turtle conservation beaches.
Both beaches are remotely located. Montezuma is a more touristy town with shops, restaurants and hotels, whereas Ostional has very little tourism and is a very “Costa Rican” community.
Uvita - Dominical
The Pacific Coast of Costa Rica consists of beautiful long beaches with surf break and high mountainous areas with amazing views. Here we offer the Wildlife Sanctuary project between Dominical and Uvita and volunteers can also join the Biological Research Center in Ojochal. The views from the sanctuary are spectacular – and the Biological Research Center is located right at a paradise beach.
Our turtle season is half of the year on the Carribean Coast, and around a half a year on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. From February until July turtles arrive on the beaches around the Northern Carribean area of Costa Rica, near Tortuguero (hence the name from “tortuga” which is Spanish for turtle). Bautiful sandy beaches, palm trees, jungle – river systems.. and of course the sea turtle projects are the main highlights of this area.
