About Costa Rica

The phrase “pura vida” literally translated means “pure life,” but its nuanced meaning of “living life to the fullest” is as rich and complex as the country itself. Costa Rica is one of the most bio-diverse and socially-diverse countries in the world. Teeming with life of every kind, Costa Rica is a land of vibrant natural wonder. Its warm and welcoming people and much of its wildlife and ecosystems are found nowhere else. Yet, in the same way that its diverse ecosystems coexist, there are people in great need living among those who have much. In these places of great need, ISL participates in volunteer work led by our Costa Rican staff.

A Brief Overview of Costa Rica

Costa Rica is a Central American country bordered by the Pacific Ocean, the Caribbean Sea, and the countries of Nicaragua, and Panama. Costa Rica has become one of the most stable, democratic, prosperous, and progressive nations in Latin America. It permanently abolished its army in 1949, becoming the first of a very few sovereign nations without a standing army. In fact, one of Costa Rica’s nicknames is “Switzerland of Latin America” because of its neutrality. While Costa Rica is known for its coffee and tropical fruit exports, tourism is now the largest industry. Twenty-five percent of the country’s land area is protected—one of the largest percentages in the world.

ISL Milestones in Costa Rica

Where We Serve in Costa Rica

ISL works with Costa Rican and Nicaraguan populations within a variety of communities and organizations in Costa Rica. ISL serves rural communities without easy access to urban conveniences and urban “precarios,” where homes are constructed with non-permanent materials. We also serve in nursing homes, homes for disabled persons, and wildlife and environmental conservation centers.

ISL works in all seven provinces of Costa Rica. Many of our partner communities and organizations are located in the Great Metropolitan Areas (GAMs) in the capitals of Cartago, San Jose, Heredia, and Alajuela. Our Hike for Humanity program has been successful in bringing healthcare services to indigenous people in the provinces of Puntarenas and Limón.

The Need in Costa Rica

Costa Rica has a healthcare and social welfare system that, unfortunately, is overwhelmed with the needs of its people. The unemployment rate is very high and there is a large population of immigrants living in poverty. Public and private sector employees and self-employed people who contribute to the economy are the ones who benefit the most from the system.

“My ISL trip to Costa Rica was a truly life-changing experience. Being able to learn about a country and their poorer areas is eye-opening and makes you truly appreciate what you have. By working with the wonderful communities, not only was I able to assist in providing medical care but was able to meet some amazing people. Part of my heart has been left in Costa Rica, and I will always fondly remember my time there. I am so grateful to ISL for providing me with this opportunity.”

Jacó Beach
World renowned surfing and views that give the “Rich Coast” its name are what await you at Jacó Beach. Close to the Central Valley, it’s one of Costa Rica’s most popular beaches.

Peace Waterfall
Home to wild jungle cats, howling and spider monkeys, vibrant tropical birds and butterflies that land on your shoulder, the Peace Waterfall Gardens are your access to the Costa Rican rain forest. A true nature lover’s dream, the Peace Waterfall Park is a paradise on earth. Only an hour and a half from the Alajuela Province near the airport, the park is a great way to unwind and recharge in nature. – $45 includes lunch.

Los Chorros, Tacares de Grecia
Los Chorros is one of Costa Rica’s best kept secrets. Located in the small town of Tacares de Grecia and popular with Costa Rican natives but relatively unknown to tourists, this is a great spot for an afternoon hike or swim through crystal clear rain forest water. If you’re feeling ambitious, try rappelling down the 200-foot waterfall during one of the many guided tours available each day. – $4 – Dry Season only

Poás Volcano National Park
This park gives you the rare opportunity to witness the natural wonder and fury of an active volcano at a safe distance. Considered by many to be the most breathtaking view in Costa Rica, Poás Volcano National Park also holds one of the largest active volcanoes in the world.

Baldí Hot Springs Tour Package

Manuel Antonio National Park
Widely regarded as Costa Rica’s best national park, the Manuel Antonio National Park is also its smallest. Within the park’s three square miles, you’ll find untamed beaches, secluded coves, nature trails, and a dense, natural rain forest canopy. Walk along the park’s coastline or on one of the many trails to spot rare birds and camouflaged iguanas and sloths. You won’t have any trouble spotting monkeys – there are so many that the park built suspension bridges to give them free reign through the area. – $16 entrance fee

Lodging

Whether lodging in a hacienda on the beach of the Sea of Cortez in Puerto Penasco, Mexico; a walled convent in the heart of Alajuela, Costa Rica; or in an apartment situated above the bustling metropolis of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, ISL’s lodgings for volunteers are unique and carefully chosen based on very important criteria.

Accommodations are safe, clean, and within a reasonable driving distance to service sites and recreational opportunities. Volunteers are provided their own bed, easy access to restrooms and showers, and meeting spaces for training and fellowship. Many ISL accommodations are unique and may include retreat houses, guest houses or home stays – all of which provide a distinctive cultural experience. ISL Country Coordinators provide a description of your lodging in the Final Trip Document posted to your My ISL Portal prior to your departure.

My experience in Costa Rica was an ideal opportunity for my first medical mission trip. The experience of cultural immersion is something so valuable, it has truly transformed my outlook on life and my own culture. I traveled with 15 intelligent, strong, and confident health care professionals (RN’s, RN students, NP’s, NP students, Nurse educators, and nurse education students) and with all we have to offer, I would argue we took home more than we gave.

— Lauren Stacy, Rivier University
