Do you want to know if you're ready to join our camp in Costa Rica? Take our quiz and find out!
Every morning in Costa Rica our team go for a walk along Carate beach. Whilst walking along a paradise beach is a wonderful start to the day they are also on the look out for rubbish that the ocean has washed up..
The camp in Costa Rica is located very close to the Corcovado National Park. (Voted the worlds No.1 National Park!) During your time in Costa Rica there is a must to do a tour through the park. Our volunteers Ruth and Kim did the one-day tour last week and they are about to tell you all about it!
Our new Field Communications Officer has been settling into camp life and reflects on what she was initially worried about before arriving there
Media & Journalism Intern Cecilia decided to interview the people who run some of our favourite local hang outs in the jungle. First stop - Laguna Vista!
This week, in true pura vida fashion, we started the week off with a zen yoga session in the middle of the jungle. I loved Pilates during my time at university, and swapping the sweaty gym hall for the rainforest was wonderful. We ate watermelon after the hour long session and felt wonderfully refreshed.
After last weeks move to the new camp deeper in the jungle, I expected this week to be bitten hideously by anything from a thousand mosquitos to a rogue howler monkey. However, we all seemed to have settled in nicely. Discussions of pathways to be built and the possibility of 'jungle jenga' keep us busy during the long hot days.
"Nothing feels greater than diving between waves and munching on fresh papaya and bananas under the hot sun. We felt incredibly lucky that on our journey in the sea, we saw a beautiful whale with her baby, sliding in and out of the blue waters..."
Media & Journalism Intern Cecilia reflects on the last week on the Costa Rican camp
Today was hot. I’m not talking about small beads of sweat along your temples hot, I’m talking about looking like you’ve dunked your head in a bucket of water hot. It was obvious the moment I woke up this morning for my pre-survey coffee that today was going to be scorching. At the moment, the rainy season is underway so our days have been relatively cool compared to the dry season.
