Combine Spanish, surfing, yoga, fire dancing and scuba certification in any combination for 1-12 weeks in Cabuya, Costa Rica. Programs include accommodations, zip line canopy tours, horseback riding, waterfall hikes, bonfires and a whole lot of fun. We have just bought a wildlife rescue center and are building a new campus. We are currently accepting volunteers willing to help with construction while we renew our permits and soon we will have a wildlife volunteer program as well.

This was my week two schedule. During week...More

Does this have a restaurant on location?

Response from LEDSMontezuma | Property representative |
At the moment there is only a shared kitchen that all students have access to and there are a few restaurants in town nearby. We are considering adding a restaurant sometime in the near future.
