The experience

 
Our ecotourism project provides a sustainable income for our members and this allows us to protect and conserve our cloud forest reserve. Ecotourism in a location such as Santa Lucía is very labor-intensive and we, therefore, need help from volunteers. It is sometimes possible for volunteers to focus on a specific project but usually volunteers carry out a variety of tasks and you should be willing to lend a hand where necessary.
Schedule
  • Volunteering is from Monday to Friday and the workday is normally 7 hours.
  • 7:30 breakfast
  • 8:00-12:00 volunteer 
  • 13: 00 Lunch
  • 14:00-17:00 volunteer
  • 19:00 dinner
Not included
  • Flights
  • Travel insurance
  • Internal transportation
  • Visa
