  4. Mother and Child Nutrition in Costa Rica

Kaya Responsible Travel volunteers work with women in Costa Rica who have been battered or abandoned and need security for themselves and their children, with children aged 12 and under who come from broken homes or whose parents suffer from alcoholism or drug addiction, or with men and women over 60 from low-income backgrounds. The main objective of the project is to improve the quality of life of those in need by providing food, education, work assistance, and guidance.

Program Highlights

Bungee the Old Colorado River Bridge

Standing at 265 feet the Colorado River Bridge offers one of the tallest and most beautiful jumps in the Americas. The old bridge is located an hour west of San Jose where several companies offer bundled packages, which generally include pick-up and one jump. So if jumping headfirst off a bridge in the middle of a tropical forest catches your imagination then put bungee jumping on your list.

Learn to Surf

Costa Rica has some of the best surfing anywhere in the world, with fantastic warm tropical water surfing. Surf the beach breaks, reef breaks, point breaks and river mouth breaks on the Pacific or Caribbean side of the country. Whether you're a beginner or a pro there is a wave for everyone.

Whale and Dolphin Watching

The shallow warm waters create the ideal ecosystem for humpback whales, killer whales, Pilot Whales and bottlenose, spinner and spotted dolphins. Humpback whales come from two hemispheres to breed and spend the longest period of the year here. It's the premier location to see these amazing mammals up close.
