#PuraVida en Costa Rica

It has been exactly one year since my first life-changing adventure, traveling to a new country and making a real impact. This is the trip that started it all, and I want to share a glimpse of this beautiful experience with you all.

During this trip, I got the amazing opportunity to volunteer at El Faro, the local orphanage. This residential facility is home to about 25 children who range in age between toddlers to pre-teens (2yrs-12yrs old). The “Tias” or caretakers at the orphanage need help with everyday tasks for the children.

Volunteer Activities May Include:

  • Helping children learn conversational English
  • Teaching basics like colors, numbers, letters and basic math.
  • Preparing, serving and helping to feed the younger children
  • Create arts and crafts, songs, sports activities with the kids.
