Answer for Family of 5 looking to volunteer in Manuel Antonio. Any suggestions or contacts to help us? Thanks

Hi lboyan,
That’s great that your family wants to give back on your vacation. There are definitely some orgs in the Manuel Antonio area that need help. Here are a few places to give you some ideas:

*If you have any problems getting in touch with any of these, let us know and we can try to track down some contacts for you.

Something else we thought we’d mention is Pack for a Purpose. It’s a global organization but some of the hotels in Manuel Antonio participate. The idea is that you bring school supplies or other items to benefit local kids/charities with you and then drop them off at the hotel when you get here. Here’s a link with info on Costa Rica:
