About the workproject

We need 10 volunteers

We are a community located at the most beautiful part in Costa Rica, near the beach and surrounded by nature. We would like to receive some volunteers, who want to combine work and holiday, to improve our community in different ways. We are very interested in learning from other cultures, exchange knowledge. The help needed varies from teaching english to little children to helping on a farm for example. Also cooking, construction and helping with tourism projects is possible.

About the host

Wilma (52)

Host since



Nederlands, English, German, Spanish

Most people here only speak spanish, so it would be nice if you do too. A beginners level will do. I can always help translating or explaining in English, Dutch and a little German.

I am Wilma, 48 years old, originally from the Netherlands, currently living in Costa Rica and almost 20 years married with a Tico (as they call the costaricans). I am always in to helping people. I have experience as a host for a year now and I also was a volunteer myself. To improve our community we could use all kinds of volunteers. I would love to connect you with the work that suits you, and help you with activities, etc. I would like you to have a good time, to bring energy and joy, to make a difference, to share your knowledge, make friends, to combine work and holiday in exchange for meals and a sleeping place. It will be an experience you'll never forget.
