Volunteer Abroad in Costa Rica with CCS


As a Cross-Cultural Solutions international volunteer, you're making a meaningful contribution, working side-by-side with local people and sharing in the goals of a community that warmly welcomes you. You're experiencing another culture like never before and really getting to know its people. It's an exciting and personally inspiring experience, and you'll develop memories that will be with you forever.

Famous for lush rainforests, beautiful beaches and progressive mentality, Costa Rica is also known throughout the world as a pillar of stability in Latin America. CCS operates one of its volunteer programs in the rural community of Puriscal, a small town not known as a tourist attraction, with very little foreign influence. Other CCS volunteer programs in Costa Rica are in San Jose, Costa Rica's capital city, and Cartago, a beautiful, historic city.

In addition to Costa Rica, Cross-Cultural Solutions offers volunteer programs in Brazil, Ghana, Guatemala, India, Morocco, Peru, South Africa, Tanzania, and Thailand. Start dates are year-round and programs run from 1-12 weeks long.
