Quativa Costa Rica Orosi Valley 2022
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.
Volunteer Work Projects in Orosi Valley
About an hour from the city of San Jose, in a gorgeous, hidden valley (Orosi), rests the tiny community of El Yaz, known for its clean water, rich soil, eternal spring-like temperatures (about 75 degrees every day), and organic, agricultural way of life. Although the villagers love their natural paradise, they have struggled to make ends meet, as even low-paying jobs are rare. Most villagers may not live in abject poverty but have no access to hot water, cars, or many of the amenities to which a North American may be accustomed.
