Orosi Valley, Costa Rica
Our home base for the two-week Costa Rica Odyssey program is the beautiful Orosi Valley – about an hour outside of the capital city of San Jose. Thanks to our local partner and leading international volunteer organization, Cross-Cultural Solutions, you will be matched with a volunteer placement in the nearby communities of Cartago or the Orosi Valley, where you’ll spend your mornings giving back.
In the afternoons and evenings, you’ll experience some the best of Costa Rica’s natural beauty and vibrant culture, with the chance to explore the landscape, immerse yourself in cultural activities, and connect with locals impacted by cancer. In addition, you’ll participate in A Fresh Chapter in-country programming, featuring activities and group sessions designed to explore the emotional impact of cancer while also helping you to reimagine the next chapter of your life. During the weekend, you’ll travel winding roads into the breathtaking Costa Rican rainforest to witness the unforgettable majesty of the Arenal Volcano.
