Om programmet

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. With the help and cooperation of the local population, we have succeeded in creating an atmosphere in which everyone feels comfortable and welcome. 


Our program offers a remarkable opportunity for volunteers to immerse themselves in the vibrant culture of Costa Rica. By participating in our program, you will have the chance to engage with locals, explore their traditions firsthand, and develop a deeper understanding of their way of life. Additionally, you will have the incredible chance to savor delicious local cuisine. Our program offers an invaluable opportunity to gain knowledge about the abundant wildlife that thrives in Costa Rica. Through hands-on experiences you will be able to closely observe and appreciate the rich biodiversity that defines this beautiful country. 


This program observes the birds of the Caribbean coast in their natural habitat.In  Costa Rica more than 800 different kids of birds have been recorded. With this program and your help we aspire to make a registry of the number of birds living and nesting and birds traveling and passing through Costa Rica's Caribbean side. Some of the endangered green macaw seem to have just started to migrating to Barra de Pacuare from the National Park area of Tortuguero, we're hoping to make some observations about different kinds of species meanwhile getting a count, too.


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.

Typisk dag

We do observations from Monday to Friday. The observations are held at different times. Your day may start early, with an observation. 

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 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.

You can also organize trips to some of the touristic cities of Costa Rica, e.g. La Fortuna, Puerto Viejo, Monte Verde. The project also organizes day-tours to Tortuguero to go see the national park.

  • provide food 3 times a day (and extra snacks e.g. local fruits and cookies) 
  • materials for our day-to-day work

Boende

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.

Mat och Dryck

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.

Detaljer vid ankomsten

The best and cheapest way to arrive is by taking the bus from San Jose to Bataan. You can catch it at Grand Terminal del Caribe in San José center and buy your tickets directly there. 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.

You can join us all year long, any day of the week.

Om projektet

Naturaleza de Pacuare, a local organization in love with nature works on biodiversity protection in the Carribean coast, to offer eco international volunteering.

Möt din programledare

The project Naturaleza Pacuare was founded to 100% by local people from Costa Rica 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 and others animals, 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. With the knowledge of doing something good and valuable, everyone should have the opportunity to leave a lasting impression on the world. We offer slow and eco tourism and international volunteering. Volunteering abroad and especially in Costa Rica is an opportunity to enjoy nature and wildlife and participate to animals rescue.

2024 at Bird Observation Supporter

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 ...

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 ...
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 ...

2024 at Nature Conservation Supporter

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 ...
