Bird & Serve Costa Rica

The Journey

Wake up to the stunning Squirrel Cuckoo, Montezuma, Passerini Tanager, or Golden hooded Tanager…just to name a few of the stunning birds you will identify! Do you enjoy travel? Are you Looking for an amazing Journey where you can make a difference in a local community and enjoy the sights and sounds of the most amazing birds of Costa Rica? This is a wonderful Service Adventure for you! This meaningful Journey is designed for the person who has a love of the outdoors and a heart to serve. We will spend several days birdwatching and exploring the special areas of the country that we’ve grown to love over the past 8 years of taking teams. You will feast on local cuisine, have nice and comfortable accomodations, and experience a true sense of Costa Rican life. led2serve organizes all the details for you. All transportation and details are arranged before you arrive. This week will be filled with activities to engage in and also provide time on your own.

led2serve engages participants in hands-on service experiences while traveling in the USA and Costa Rica. Any and all skills are welcome, as you will choose each day how you are “led2serve” on a local project.  These service experiences are customized for each journey depending on the team. Details on projects will be determined after talking with the specific Journey Leader, assessing the needs of the community at that time and working with the group. Projects may include: painting a local school, construction, reading or teaching swimming, forest restoration projects, and more. Based on weather and partner availability, service experiences are subject to change.
