Give back by volunteering in the rural community of Santos, Costa Rica where you will engage in service learning activities based on the needs of the community.

Explore the great outdoors further by kayaking around Lake Arenal, then test the waters of nature's Jacuzzi at the nearby hot springs. Learn how coffee gets from farm to table on our Bio Coffee Adventure, then top off your outdoor educational adventure by witnessing a volcano's bubbling surface up close (but not too close).

This destination is more than just beautiful landscapes, cultural experiences, and high adventure - you are traveling with a purpose. The Santos community values the help of volunteers just like yourself. Combine your love of fun and making the world a better place on this adventure.
