Volunteer Opportunities

Me and my boyfriend are travelling Costa Rica in the Summer and were wondering if anybody could recommend an orphanage or school we could go to for a day or two to help, not looking to pay masses with a company but instead do something more personal. We speak basic spanish and any recommendations would be amazing!

What a nice idea. We have done this in the Caribbean, not CR. One idea if you are animal lovers is to look at the Toucan Rescue Ranch. They are always happy to welcome volunteers to help with the animals and birds.

Depends where you'll be staying at. Many schools in the more remote areas would appreciate any volunteer help.

If you like animals you could also consider The Monkey Farm in Playa Ocotal. It is run by volunteers. https:/…themonkeyfarmcostarica

Some friends of mine recently volunteered for a day with Give A Day Global: www.giveadayglobal.org

They work with one day volunteers they ask that you make a small contribution in addition to your time - but they said it was really rewarding and worth it!
