Mission Statement

Meet all the needs of each volunteers in this beautiful and create a unique and different experience


Located in Costa Rica. This is a family company that has been around since 2004 and enlisted the aid of hundreds of volunteers from all over the world, which ones come to our country to work on the ecological and social projects our company offer.

The farther you have to travel to get here and the eager you are to participate and learn about our great history and culture, the more we will appreciate and love you for your commitment to be the change in our great country. When you the volunteer dedicate your time and effort to us, we promise to dedicate all of our resources to making sure your efforts make the greatest difference possible.

A great example of a typical volunteer experience will be as follows. Before arriving in Costa Rica, the volunteers will have to choose the project that fits with their best interests whether it’s a social or ecological project. This is done for both the and the organization to be clear. We will then provide transportation from the airport to the host family residence, of which you will be living in during your stay. I have a group of local families that have renovated and dedicated their time and homes to our program.

The families we have chosen as hosts will do everything in their power to help you with your personal journey as well you will be able to immerse and understand the way our day to day "tica" life style is lived.
