  :: Volunteer Costa Rica

Costa Rica, or the "Switzerland of Latin America", has over 5% of the world’s biodiversity. With 25% of the country protected national parks, ecotourism is a flourishing industry.

The home of the three toed sloth, the iguana and the jaguar, Costa Rica is a haven for some of the world's most beautiful and unusual creatures. The country is mountainous and volcanic with two active volcanoes and 200 dormant or extinct. Costa Rica has a tropical climate with flooding during the rainy season.

Volunteer Costa Rica placements range from teaching English at rural schools located at the tropical Nicoya Pennisula or teaching in the mountains in the Central Valley. Volunteers can also teach in the suburbs of San Jose. We even have volunteer placements surfing along the Pacific coast!

Heredia

Heredia (population 50,000) is located 6 miles north of San José. The city and its surrounding areas provide all the conveniences of a medium-sized city in an environment which has escaped, to a large extent, the normal urban problems affecting the capital.

The city is mostly new, apart from an attractive colonial main square and has a surprisingly youthful feel despite its small size. This is due to the presence of the many young Costa Ricans attending the local university. Many of Costa Rica’s famous coffee plantations surround Heredia where one can still see ox-carts loaded with beans from the plantations.

If you have a practical approach to life, why not try one of our Volunteer Costa Rica building projects, helping families to build weather proof and sanitised homes in poor rural areas. If you are planning a degree in engineering, surveying, or architecture this could be the placement for you. Get the basic understanding of structural engineering from laying floors to roofing.

  :: Volunteer Information for Gap Year Students

Gap year students can make a start TEFL teaching in rural schools in Costa Rica. Teaching at schools that do not have the money to employ full time teachers can provide gap year students with valuable life experience for the classroom. Alternatively if you feel like throwing yourself into the cut and thrust of TEFL teaching in the city, we have Volunteer Costa Rica placements, teaching in areas like San Jose and provincial capitals Alajuela and Heredia.
