Über das Programm

Come and join us for an unforgettable experience, the only requirement is adventurous blood!

The project Naturaleza Pacuare was founded in 2019 by local people and is also managed by them. Our goal is to preserve the ecosystem in a sustainable way, to support the biodiversity in our country and to protect the sea turtles, some of which are highly endangered. With the help and cooperation of the local population, we have succeeded in creating an atmosphere in which everyone feels comfortable and welcome. 

At Naturaleza Pacuare we know that it doesn't take much to change the world a little. We believe that with the knowledge of doing something good and valuable, everyone should have the opportunity to leave a lasting impression on the world. It is a great concern for us not only to provide ecological help, but also to give our volunteers a great opportunity to get to know the everyday life of Costa Rica.

This program’s aim is to observe monkeys. Three out of four species of monkeys of Costa Rica can be found on the Caribbean side of the country, the howler monkeys, the capuchin monkeys and the spider monkeys. We sometimes gather in the early morning, when the howler monkeys are most active. Initially, we might even hear the deep howling calls from our beds. As the day progresses, the other two species of monkeys also emerge from their resting places. yyThe monkey populations in Costa Rica are a critical part of the country's biodiversity. Their migration and feeding habits provide valuable insight into animal behavior.

You will need to bring a flashlight for the evenings. Make sure you also pack your preferred items to fight the heat and sun during the day. Pack a mosquito net for above the bed and mosquito spray. We provide bedsheets, but you will have to bring your towel.

For the observations, you will need to bring a pair of binoculars and a pair of comfortable footwear.

To have internet access - as we live on an island with limited signal - you will need to buy yourself a Kolbi SIM card. Worldwide data plans paid at your own provider won’t work, only the Kolbi Costa Rican line gets signal on the beach. You can buy and activate at the airport or bus station and it costs about $5. Make sure you recharge it another $5-$10 to make sure you have enough data for your time being here.

Tagesablauf

We do monkey observations from Monday to Friday. Your day may start early with monkey monitoring.

At 8:30 AM, you will have breakfast.

After breakfast the first activity of the day starts which could vary from cleaning our beaches, maintaining our garden, to helping out locals with collecting and peeling coconuts, to name a few.

1 PM is lunchtime.

In the afternoon, depending on the mornings’ workload, we either do a second activity, do our monkey observation or enjoy free time on the beach playing games, reading, napping and on days when the sea is safe, we even enjoy a nice swim together! 

At 7 PM we have dinner.

Before going to bed we like to play some card games or maybe light a bonfire on the beach when we’re not in turtle season.

Unterkunft

Our volunteer accommodation features a range of basic amenities to make your stay comfortable. Constructed primarily from wood, it boasts two dorm rooms that can accommodate several volunteers. The house also includes a private bathroom that features a shower and toilet with the essential amenities provided. A kitchen is attached to the house from the outside where we prepare volunteers' meals.

Verpflegung

We provide three meals a day.

We will be preparing a mixture of local and internationals meals to give a chance to our volunteers to get to know as much about cuisine as possible. We always have some cookies and fruits if you feel snackish during the day!

There’s always water available but if you feel up for something special, you can treat yourself to some cold drinks at the local minibar, where you can also get some other kinds of snacks.


For breakfast we normally prepare e.g. sandwiches, pancake, or the local options, gallo pinto and empanadas.

For lunch we like to go a bit light and have some veggies with some rice and fruits on the side.

In the evening, we like making meals with rice and beans or potatoes, a meal with meat or fish for the carnivores, a veggie option for vegetarians/vegans, a salad or some pasta.


We are generally a vegetarian camp, meat is only served 2-3 times a week maximum.

The bus leaves at 2, 4 or 6PM. Costs about 4000 Costa Rican colones. Then you catch the taxi from Bataan bus station (which is already pre-organized and waiting for you) to the boat dock for 10 000 colones. To finish off your journey, a 25-minute long, unbelievable trip by boat on the river which costs 35 000 colones, already including your departure ride. The whole trip all together takes about 4,5 hours.

If you prefer a quicker and more comfortable option, we can arrange a private taxi from San José up to the boat dock, it has a cost of $120. By car (depending on the traffic), you can get to Bataan in about 3 hours.

2024 at Monkey Observation Supporter

I was a little disappointed. First by the program: it said that the aim is observation of monkeys. But in my opinion it was rather just watching, we got some information but I thought we were going to watch them for a long time, watch and note their behaviour etc. but it was just some walk time to ...

2023 at Monkey Observation Supporter

I spent 2 weeks in Naturaleza de Pacuare project and it was one of the best experiences in my life. You really feel like a Mowgli from the Jungle Book because the place is so wild and untouched. The project is small which is quite nice because you get a real family vibe. Very few locals live in ...
I was really excited to volunteer to help protect the turtles, however the living conditions of the project is disappointing. The food was very nice and we had 3 cooked meals a day, which were very filling and it was nice to sit together and chat. The area itself is beautiful and we loved the range ...
Everyone was really welcoming and it was on a really cool spot with lots of lovely wildlife that felt like a desert island, however we did feel deserted. The internet access is actually a pole on the beach that you have to hold your phone in the sky to make it work, so if you fancy contacting your ...

It was a great experience in a beautiful surrounding. Every day, I went out into the jungle or by boat to go bird watching. We also had some other work to do such as cleaning the beach, planting pineapple plants or some other tasks. I liked the fact that it was a small group of volunteers and ...

My son is interested in a career in conservation and loved this program. It is a little more remote than others which allows for a truly immersive experience. Dora and Alex, the coordinators, were both incredibly helpful with information about how to get to the project since it is more remote. My ...
