Thank you for your interest in our volunteer program!
Volunteering at the Jaguar's Jungle is the unique experience of working in one of the most remote establishments in Costa Rica. Tasks can include cleaning, cooking, gardening, trail maintenance, painting, decorating, construction, interaction with tourists, bartender, etc. Short term volunteers generally work for 4-5 hours per day with one day off per week. Volunteer accommodation is located in our jungle dorm, where the monkeys pass through most mornings. In addition to free accomadation and breakfast, our volunteers have access to our snorkeling and fishing equipment, as well as kayaks.
Our volunteers work in exchange for free accommodation. Since we are in such a remote location we put our volunteers on a food program so that they don't have to buy and bring their own food onto the boat. Below are the conditions of our volunteer program.
1.) There is a minimum 3 week volunteer commitment.
2.) There is a $15/day contribution for 3 meals per day
3.) There will be a high volume of volunteers and guests so sleeping arrangements may be switched around.
4.) Volunteers must be 21 or older
