Costa Rica - Seeking cheap volunteer organization fees

Jump to last reply

Hello fellow travelers,

I am seeking a volunteer site in Costa Rica that offers low cost volunteer opportunities. If you have any suggestions, please share them here.

Here is a list of things that I am looking for:

-low cost ($200-250 per week for food and accommodations)
-small registration fee (max $200)
-short term (3 weeks)
-lodging with local family or other native speakers
-an opportunity to use my intermediate level Spanish skills (so no teaching English)
-interacting mostly with adults (a little bit with children is ok, just not all of the time)

While I am interested in women's issues, I am open to other options too that will be of benefit to a local community.

After hours of searching, I finally found a great site that offers placements in Peru, Bolivia and Ecuador. Unfortunately, I realized later that airfare to Peru is 3 times greater than Costa Rica. So due to my budget, I really need to stay within Costa Rica.

Here is a link to the organization I was talking about though. It has such great rates, I think it needs to be shared.
