Reserva Playa Tortuga

Work & Free Time

RPT requires that you volunteer 5.5 days for every week you stay and 6 hours each day. Volunteers may choose to work more hours and may select which projects they would prefer to work on.  Spaces are limited, especially on the turtle project, no more than 8 people may be patroling at once (Couples may not always be able to work together).

During a volunteer’s free time, there are many tours and activities (at volunteer’s own cost) in the area to choose from: surf lessons, horseback riding, zipline tours, photography lessons, hiking, waterfalls, local beaches, snorkeling and diving among many others.

Ojochal also has many restaurants, a supermarket, pulperias, shops and bars in walking distance of the Reserva.

There are also buses to Uvita, Dominical, Quepos and to the rest of Costa Rica and Panamá (we are 2.5 hours from the border).
