You’ll experience this amazing city, culture and its friendly people while providing vital healthcare support.

Participants will meet like-minded volunteers from around the world on the program, and work in roles suited to their level of training and experience in a busy hospital.  Put your skills and compassion to good use and sign up as a volunteer today!

What to Expect

This important medical volunteering program is best suited to students and fully qualified medical personnel, with placements depending on your level of skill and experience. Placements are currently at Lusigetti Hospital, one of the largest and busiest hospitals in the city.  The hospital offers a wide variety of care to their patients, including in and out patient care, maternity care, a laboratory and pharmacy. Adjacent to the hospital and part of the program are dental, nutrition, TB, HIV and counselling services. Regardless of your training, you’ll find a healthcare area where you’ll be able to put your skills to the test and help those less fortunate.  

Working alongside professional doctors and nurses, you’ll support them where it’s needed most, helping in a city where families are desperate for quality healthcare. The first few days of any placement are observation-based to ensure you get a real feel for how things are done and for the culture.  Volunteers stay with ‘Mama’ in the Volunteer House, experiencing the fun and camaraderie of a volunteer community from around the world. See you in vibrant Kenya – sign up now!

Location

Your base for this project is 30 minutes south of the small town of Quepos on Costa Rica’s central Pacific coastline. The town of Playa Matapalo has a restaurant and store so any everyday needs are covered.

There is no short supply of activities to do in your free time. Surfing and horseback riding are popular in the area. Just a short hike away from you is an amazing swimming hole and waterfall. Not too far away are Quepos town and Manuel Antonio National Park. 

This remote paradise is unpolluted by noise and light, making it a popular nesting ground for thousands of sea turtles each year.
