Meet the Host Families

Get to know a few of the host families.  Below is information about what to expect for food and accommodations.

Cost of the program is $35/night and includes all meals. 
100% of these funds go directly to families in Gandoca.

All ages welcome


While the accommodations can be rustic, you'll be quite at home.  Families will provide linens and mosquito nets.  Most participants end up in their own room with a shared bathroom.  We'll do our best to pair you with a family that can meet any special requests you have. 


The Caribbean coast is home to the best food in Costa Rica.  You'll receive three meals a day from your host family.  Often local fish and chicken are part of their diet but they are happy to meet any dietary needs.  Getting involved in the kitchen can be another great way to share culture and learn new recipes.
