This volunteer experience has been so worthwhile and rewarding for me. I thoroughly enjoyed the people, the classes, the town. An experience I shall never forget.
Whether you are here for a week or living in San Gerardo permanently there are volunteer opportunities available for you!
Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, to contribute in a meaningful way to your community, or to spend time on your vacation really getting to know the culture, the people and the language of Costa Rica.
