AWESOME!

Emilio and his family were really kind and lovely

The farm is incredible, in the middle of the jungle, it is the best way to disconnect from everything!

The work is very easy and you have a lot of time to enjoy the beautiful place.

I highly recommend, it is a great experience :)

Overall the experience is very good and I don’t regret it. It is not often that one gets a chance to camp in the middle of a rain forest. However the setup and the facilities provided are poor and can be much better. The camp is in the jungle 35 min walk from the nearest town. The tents provided are in bad shape so better bring your own. Work is very minimal and easy.
Overall this is a lovely and unique experience but it’s somehow not for the queezy since insects and little animals are everywhere and I wish the facilities were better.

Emilio and his family are amazing people, the entire experience was really nice, i learned a lot with Luis(the guide) about animals, plants, insects in the night hiking. The place is really huge and fantastic, nice place to observe nature in a wild way, crossing rivers, waterfalls.
I made some videos editing. I was working as social media and video maker for them. I hope my help was good to transform his business and make it better. The village is very small but has everything you need, is a fun place to be with very warm people.

This was my first experience with Worldpackers and Costa Rica. Drake Bay -- The location is excellent. Rio Agujitas primed me for other volunteer experiences.
