Volunteering

Would you like to volunteer with us? We are open to volunteers who are passionate about contributing to the project, the community, and themselves. 

The Opportunity

Currently we are open to select volunteers who have the following skill sets: 


  • Cooking and food preparation (passionate about cooking and able to lead food preparation for group meals)
  • Regenerative farming and/or Gardening (experience working in the tropics and able to take on projects)
  • Natural building (knowledge, skills and experience in this area) 

We invite people who have skills and experience in these areas and are ready to contribute to these skills. We are looking to support and teach those who are passionate about contributing to the project, the community, and themselves. 


Volunteers will join teams led by one of our amazing point holders, but the expectation is that volunteers can work without a lot of supervision. 

 

How it Works

The exchange is based on volunteers contributing 20 hours of work a week.


As part of the exchange, three prepared meals are available each day during the week. On the weekend staple foods are provided and are prepared by the community in a free-flow style.


Volunteers usually need to bring a tent with them. There may be space to stay in one of our dorms. 


We require a one month commitment and have a one week check in to ensure proper fit.


Things to Note

We have WiFi internet, which works great during the dry season, but during the wet months (May – October) tends to experience frequent outages. If you have commitments that require you to be online at certain times, it is better that you plan to visit us from November onwards.


We are about 20 minutes drive from town and the beach. 4WD is required to get to us. If you choose to join us, expect to spend a lot of time at Tierramor, which is fairly removed from the more general area. 


We request a contribution of $20 per day to support food costs and keep the volunteer program going. 


Tierramor prohibits individual use of drugs/ medicines. Plant medicines are sometimes utilized together to move through portals as a community.

  • What is the food like?

    Most of the food is vegetarian, and vegans can be accommodated. We aim to have as much local and organic food as possible.

  • What is the internet like?

    All communal areas have internet. Tierramor has also built a dedicated lounge-like co-working space on the land, which is accessible to all community members. The internet is excellent and we hope to install high speed internet soon as well.

  • What is your children policy?

    Right now we are open to adults only. Children are welcome to attend specific day events only. As Tierramor continues to grow and evolve, this may change.

  • Can I bring my car and what are the roads like?

    If you are renting or bringing your own car, make sure you are driving a four-wheel drive (4x4). The majority of roads are unpaved, dirt roads and require a specialized car. You will be able to safely park your vehicle in the designated parking areas at Tierramor.

  • How do I get to Tierramor?

    You can drive, or take a taxi service from Nosara.

    1. Type into GPS the following address: Mini Super Y Licores Río Montaña, located in the mango grove area between Nosara and Ostional.

    2. Once there, turn into the road towards the mountains which is next to the Mini super Y licores.

    3. Head straight for about 0.5 km until you reach a T junction. There will be a river on your right and a road on your left. Go left and follow the road for another mile.

    4. You will pass through a teak forest, go over a small bridge and a 2.5 mile dirt road up the hill will take you to Tierramor.

    5. You will see signs along the way and a member of our team will meet you up top to help with parking.

  • How far out of town is Tierramor?

    We are located outside of Nosara in the Rio Montana area.

    The easiest way to get into town is by car (4x4 necessary) which takes around ~25 minutes in the dry season. The roads can be really bad in the wet season, which makes this a longer and more challenging trip.

  • How far is the beach from Tierramor?

    We are ~25 minutes away from the beach by car (4x4 necessary). There are sometimes shared rides available. The roads can be really bad in the wet season, which makes this a longer and more challenging trip.

  • Which are the best months to come?

    The Dry Season, which extends from November to April, coincides with the peak tourist season. During these months, camping and casita accommodations are at their prime, and it is generally the most enjoyable time to stay at Tierramor. Please note March and April are the hottest months in the Guanacaste region.

    The Green Season is exceptionally stunning but can present more challenges, including occasional power and internet outages, heavy rainfall, and difficult road conditions, primarily in the months of August through October. 

    The weather is greatly influenced by the annual climate patterns.

  • Is it possible to buy land or a house?

    These opportunities are coming soon! Please sign up to our newsletter to stay up to date with this.
