Pura Vida!

The food and accommodations were wonderful, the work was gratifying and our guide and host family were so warm and welcoming. Being immersed in the local community/culture was an invaluable experience that we will never forget. We worked hard but there was plenty of time to see the sights too. Everything was well organized and stress-free. We got so much more than we gave. Highly recommend this trip!

From their homes into our hearts

We fell in love with the people, the food, the culture and the climate! One of the things our family loved most was getting to eat most of our meals in the locals' homes, which made the food, and the experience, very authentic. You don't really understand a person until you've washed their dishes, in their sink, using their everyday method and resources. We came home with greater appreciation for our electric dishwasher, black beans at our table more often and hearts filled with love for the people of Orosi Valley!
