Costa Rica is a cultural and natural paradise, but most travelers only see it from a traditional tourist perspective, missing much of the key beauty and challenges that are its reality. Globe Aware's Costa Rica volunteer travel programs offer a unique opportunity to help small communities improve their well-being and create a sustainable future in ecologically important areas.


Projects

Globe Aware is building a multi-use center which, in addition to providing refuge for those affected by earthquakes and natural disasters, etc, will be where many locals receive sustainable job skills. The government has agreed to provide ongoing maintenance costs and instructors for training locals in plumbing, farming, construction, sewing, and many other self-sustaining technical job skills when the building is complete.


As side projects to the heavy manual labor of construction, volunteers will work in a variety of community development projects such as:

  • English teaching at public schools
  • Maintenance to Community Facilities
  •  Maintenance and upgrades to local families homes’
  •  Arts and crafts / activities or fitting reading glasses for elderly people group
  •  Chicken coop construction for local families
