A leader in biodiversity, Costa Rica is home to lush rainforests and a wide array of flora and fauna. It has one of the most stable democracies in Latin America, and is at the forefront of environmental sustainability. However, like any emerging economy, opportunities are not always evenly distributed and many of the more remote regions of the country are much less developed. Providencia de Dota is a small coffee-farming village in the cloud forest. In partnership with Dream Volunteers, Priory Seniors will immerse themselves in this warm community, serving alongside the locals, helping to reverse climate change through sustainability projects and exploring the natural beauty of this area. They’ll work on sustainable agriculture and/or reforestation projects.
