If you want to live on a tropical paradise and help people and animals in need then look no further than spending your gap year volunteering in Costa Rica. Approximately 1 in every 4 Costa Ricans do not have enough income to fulfil their basic needs resulting in a huge percentage of the population living below the poverty line. Volunteering in Costa Rica directly affects these people and helps give them hope for the future.
There are so many different options to choose from when you are volunteering in Costa Rica. There’s a huge demand for English teachers to facilitate a new generation of international business men and women. Orphanages are always on the lookout for new volunteers to help with their rising occupiers and there are many construction projects that focus on rebuilding tired and run-down homes, schools, community centres and hospitals. Volunteering in Costa Rica could also see you contribute to a turtle conservation project or assist in the sustainable production of coffee to boost local economies.
