Tropical Adventures provides volunteer and voluntour packages for individuals, families and groups interested in exploring the culture, language and natural beauty of Costa Rica. Our tours revolve around local volunteer projects, which offer the adventure of a lifetime for those willing to share their love, skills and time with those less fortunate. Most volunteers decide to combine trips to beaches and volcanoes, as well as adventure tours, to their volunteering. The majority of our guests choose to live with a local family, volunteer in a local community, take Spanish lessons and partake in many adventure tours in an attempt to see Costa Rica in a whole new way. We work mainly by supporting local, nonprofit organizations with volunteer help. In addition to volunteer labor and the gift of our time, we work with these volunteers to provide gifts of materials, supplies, (and in some cases cash) where needed. Through our many programs we educate individuals, tribes, and communities to be self-sufficient and to create a healthier, more comfortable lifestyle. We strive to do this without introducing change to their happy, loving culture and values. Tropical Adventures Foundation is not associated with any religion, however love, compassion and respect are used as the cornerstone of all our programs.
