« "Even travelling alone, well,almost alone, Odysway is always by your side, which is particularly reassuring. I chose to get involved in the aid project at the animal shelter in Escazu near San José, the capital of Costa Rica. Welcomed in the home of the local resident, in Escazu at Jenny's, a real mother who takes care of you throughout your stay.
If you speak English or Spanish then it will be even better, but I testify that with a basic English it is quite feasible. At the animal shelter, you will be welcomed by Paola, a passionate young woman who fights so that her little darlings return to the wild.

Costa Rica has an exceptional fauna and flora and is working to preserve this richness. At the refuge you will be with other international volunteers. In the program preparation and distribution of food, for parrots, sloths, monkeys. etc... In conclusion, enchanted by this stay, this part of the planet is beautiful! Costa Ricans are welcoming and proud of their country which is particularly pleasant."
