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 within the communities of the Los Santos. 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, thus meeting both immediate and long-term goals. This entails community development projects such as road and classroom construction, and 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.
