Welcome to Santa Teresa
Your first night will be spent in San Jose, where the team assembles, before starting your journey to Santa Teresa on the Nicoya Peninsula, the next day.
Your main base will be at Jakera Camp, based in the lively, hip beach town of Santa Teresa, world famous for surf breaks across beaches so pristine, uncrowded, and seemingly endless that they are regularly listed in the ‘World’s 10 Best Beaches’.
Jakera Camp is a jungle paradise, overlooked by a rich tropical forest bursting with wildlife including capuchin and howler monkeys. You’ll love it.
After a day of surfing, brushing up on your Spanish, and volunteering, you’ll have time to explore the town which comes alive with funky surf shops, cafes, restaurants and nightspots for every taste and budget.
Jakera Camp is a buzzing place - lots of bungalows dotted around the tropical gardens and swimming pool with central hub where you eat and chill out. Single sex dorms with bunk beds and western style bathrooms. Approx. a 10 minute (800 m) walk to the beach. At the turtle sanctuary expect very rustic bungalows, bunk bed dorms, cold-water showers.
Jakera Camp - breakfast and lunch only. Dinner is not included. Turtle sanctuary - all meals included.
