As a pro bono teacher of Spanish, I love volunteering, and the management at Recreo Resort in Guanacaste, Costa Rica clearly do too. Recreo is showing its thanks to those who volunteer by offering two additional free nights if guests book five nights and volunteer for at least one day between now and January 31, 2010. The package starts at $239 per person per night. Included are a dedicated chef preparing 3 premium meals per person per day in the villa’s private full kitchen, a private housekeeper for daily service, mountain and bay views from private balconies and infinity pools at each villa, concierge services, full access to the fitness center and tennis courts, chauffeured transportation around the estate and to the beach, and other on-site amenities.
Recreo has done some wonderful things for its community such as supplying approximately 700 people with water by installing a new well and pump for El Jobo (the small fishing village near Recreo), hiring only local Costa Ricans, and donating bicycles to the El Jobo Police Department for local patrolling. Now, Recreo is asking you to help in their mission, adding a new dimension to the concept of vacation. Pick from an array of volunteer programs such as helping build schools, aiding the underprivileged, protecting endangered animals, working on a local farm or teaching local students about US geography.
