About the workproject

We need 2 volunteers

We are The Usure Project.
Usure = Cosmic House or Sibu House.
Sibu is the god image for the Bribri and Cabecar indigineous communities in Costa Rica.

We are starting a project for a hostel in this big area of Nuevo Arenal. There is the artificial Lake Arenal, that was finished back in the 70's. We want to initialize communities projects for improving of the locals area, and also environmental projects to restore more of the biodiversity that existed several years ago in this place.

We are starting up the idea for our hostel and we would really need somebody to assist us on the gardening, maintenance, farming, marketing, construction and whatever else we have going on at the moment, whichever area you prefer more. We want to start this Costa Rican hostel as soon as possible, and also, we want to have ready the places for staying so we can take more people in and start all this communities and environmental projects to create a different kind of turism in our contry, a more mental and spiritual tourism.

We want to spread the love and nature the surrounds us, to teach everybody about the different ways of growing and living your lives in this current over developed world that we live in. Enjoy one of the best countries of the world, and one of the best places inside of this country, just help us out create this amazing project that we have! smile

Welcome to Costa Rica! Enjoy the trip! :D
