Volunteering in Costa Rica

"The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page." - St. Augustine

 Volunteering in Costa Rica is of those experiences you'll have trouble finding at a typical resort. Volunteering gives you the chance to authentically connect with people, animals and nature in a meaningful way that'll have a hold on your heart for years to come.

Volunteering opportunities in Costa Rica are abundant. And while many voluntourism companies exist to help organize and sell you on a program, we recommend contacting the organization you want to volunteer with directly, if at all possible.

As a general disclaimer, we have no association with any of the organizations below, nor have conducted any research into their practices ;)


Some volunteer programs in Costa Rica include:

Best Beaches in Guanacaste, Costa Rica

Once you've settled in to our 1-bedroom, ocean-view condo in Playas del Coco, you'll have access to some of the best beaches in Guanacaste, Costa Rica! Besides the cocoa-colored sands of beautiful Playas del Coco, you'll be near 3 other unique beaches worth visiting. Let's take a look!

Playa Hermosa:
An 8 km drive north, Playa Hermosa is famous for it's black sand that sparkles with a touch of gold, which is rumored to provide healing properties. The calm waters of Playa Hermosa are popular for swimming, as well as scuba diving and snorkeling.



Playa Tamarindo:
About 1.5 hours south, this picturesque, white sand beach is seemingly endless! It's a perfect beach for walking, people watching and beachcombing. Activities available on Playa Tamarindo include surfing, sunset cruises and ATV tours. 



Playa Conchal:
About an hour south, you'll find Playa Conchal and the mega resorts of Costa Rica's Pacific Coast. It's perfect for surfers looking to ride the big waves. Plus the abundance of waves means a huge selection of beachcombing shells! Even though Playa Conchal is popular with surfers, it's also a great beach for swimming, snorkeling and deep sea fishing excursions.
