In Costa Rica, the Olive Ridley Turtles nest at Ostional National Park year round, a good time to visit is during July and August.

Learn Spanish While Enjoying the Turtle Volunteer Project

Students will have five days of Spanish classes at our school in Nicoya, then be transported to Ostional Turtle Reserve for a ten day volunteer program, and then return to Nicoya for one night before returning to their home country.

Your volunteer duties at Ostional will include monitoring the beaches at night, cleaning the beaches, helping the turtles, and making signs.

You’ll enjoy interacting with the local people in Ostional and being a part of their community.
