Your Local Impact

Los Santos Region is one of the best destinations in Costa Rica for rural community tourism. Our local partners in Costa Rica have many objectives in the area but the major goal is to transform the vision of community members and show them that there are many sustainable methods to improve their way of living, to meet both immediate and long-term goals. This entails community development projects such as road and classroom construction, plus sustainable development projects such as permaculture farming and innovative recycling programs. Volunteers are a key element in this process, because they provide labour and financial resources to be able to undertake these projects.
