Your Base

Where will I be living?


During your 12 week expedition phase you will be based in the heart of the national park. The base is secluded giving you a real rainforest experience with the nearest town of Tortuguero located 1 hour away by motorboat. You’ll be staying in shared basic accommodation with participants sharing base duties including cleaning and other chores.  On the project you will be working on surrounding canals, rivers, forest, beaches and in the nearby communities, all located close to your base.  On your days off interns tend to stay around base relaxing in hammocks or take a canoe trip with a member of staff! 


Who will be working on my project?

You will be working with other international interns alongside field staff that assist the project. When on placement you will be working with local operators.
