Costa Rica never ceases to amaze with its ability to hold such diverse natural beauty in one small Central American country. For your gap year, volunteer in Costa Rica and discover its many hidden treasures!
From zip lining through rainforests to hiking volcanoes and surfing or doing yoga at white sand beaches, Costa Rica is a country for adventurers. During your volunteer program in Costa Rica, you’ll also have an opportunity to do a lot of good for the community, with volunteer positions available at after-school programs, residences for senior citizens, health clinics, animal sanctuaries and more. You’ll be able to practise your Spanish with the friendly locals, and you’ll soon understand why their national motto is “Pura vida” – enjoy life!
