Accommodation and Fees
We encourage all volunteers to stay as long as possible to maximize local and personal benefit. Minimum stay is 1 week, maximum is 12 weeks.
You will live with a Costa Rican family near the center of town. They will cook all of your meals for you and can adapt based on your dietary preferences. Staying with a family is a great way to learn about Costa Rican culture, eat typical food, and practice your Spanish!
The program fee is $750 for one, $1350 for two, $1850 for three, and $2250 for four weeks. Each additional week after 4 weeks is $400/week. The program fee is necessary to cover your cost of living and logistics. Discounts are available for partners and families.
Our overhead is covered by other means, and thus, 100% of any funds that exceed your direct cost will go towards the project you participated in.
Cost includes food, full room and board, permits, visas, local coordination and training at respective facility, local transport, full access to our facilities, etc.—everything minus personal expenses and your airfare to Costa Rica.
To book you need to pay a Reservation Deposit.
The deposit is deducted from your program fee.
