Touch down in Costa Rica
You will be met at the airport and taken for your 1st night in a hostel in San Jose. The following morning you will be transferred by minibus on a multi-logistical transfer to the Nicoya Peninsula – so get prepared… and stay awake as its a stunning journey.
Your ultimate destination is our Leap house called 'Jungle Camp', based next to the lively 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.
Here you will spend 3 weeks conserving turtles and helping with forest and community projects, before exploring the town which comes alive with funky surf shops, cafes, restaurants and nightspots for every taste and budget.
Surf and Spanish Lessons
While you're based at the Jungle Camp you will have the option to join a few Spanish lessons, (tailored to all levels) and join in some group surf lessons where you'll learn some basic skills and water safety so you can take advantage of the amazing surf on your door step.
Your base will be at our house called 'Jungle Camp' which is just a 10 min walk from the beach. The house is simple but super stylish centred around a swimming pool set in tropical gardens.
Bathrooms have western style toilets and showers with hot and cold water.
Breakfast and lunch only.
Dinner is not included. Most volunteers either eat in one of the local restaurants or cook whatever they want in the camp kitchen.
