I loved to stay here! Waking up to the sound of the waves, just amazing! I really enjoyed the fact that there was no electricity or wifi, it gave the place some extra charm: as if you were super far from civilization. The girls who were volunteering there were also super nice, it felt like a second home! :)

The Pacific lulls you to sleep after you hike the sea caves and jungle trails leading away from the property. The volunteers there were incredibly nice and fixed better meals than...

The Jungla is a unique place far away from the tourist traps where you can see all the wildlife in the osa peninsula without a tour guide. It's totally secluded and the best place to escape from the rest of the world. You can see whales right from the beach in front of the hostel and wake up to the...

Jungla del Jaguar is one of the most incredible places I've ever been to. I stayed for 3 weeks as a volunteer in January 2016 with my 2 friends. The scenery is absolutely breath taking, from the private beaches, caves, trees, wildlife and sunsets. I learned so much about myself while I was there. There's just this peaceful, relaxing vibe....
