Why not set yourself up for an amazing adventure before you ever leave home. Take the time to reserve your Stansted Parking spot, and save money at the airport on those atrocious airport taxi fees before heading off on your dream travel volunteer job.

Once you get there, explore the tropical land of Costa Rica with Global Crossroad to volunteer your time and experience the benefits of the Turtle Conservation Project. Many of the sea turtles that nest on the beach never return home, because of natural predators and human poachers. These same turtles are finding it more difficult to thrive on eroding beaches ridden with pollution. If these devastating changes are not stopped, the Lora Turtle will disappear in just two short decades! Now you can help by traveling to locations to the North Pacific of Costa Rica or along the Caribbean Coast. In this unique opportunity, you will stay with a local host family and eat Costa Rican meals three times a day. During your stay, you help preserve important turtle nesting sites and protect the baby turtles from poachers and predators. You will also get the chance to enrich your adventure with many fun activities such as bird watching, exotic rafting, and ecological hikes. The options are endless in the picturesque tropical paradise of Costa Rica.


There are many volunteer jobs options to choose from such as assisting needy children, teaching conservation techniques and exploring the amazing wonders of Costa Rica in the process. The Organic and Sustainable Farming Project located in San Miguel de Sarapiqui in Atenas is a fantastic opportunity to help the locals return to sustainable farming methods. The hills of Atenas have been blessed with fertile soil and in the past, the farmers saw rich harvests for many years. When they stopped the use of organic seeds, damage to the soil changed the land. Now these farmers need help in their efforts to return to sustainable and organic farming techniques to fetch a better price. You won’t want to miss out on this fantastic opportunity to assist the coffee farmers and spend your days picking coffee! There are also many options in Costa Rica to teach English to all ages. From pre-school to high school, you will get to experience daily life, while assisting the main teacher. The Volunteer Orphan Project is also in need of caring and nurturing individuals who can put on a smile and create a warm atmosphere for children truly in need. Many of these children have suffered through poverty, abuse or alcoholism, and you can help make a difference.
