Simplicity, radical natural beauty, wildlife and friendship are all terms which come to mind when talking about Bambu. Come, integrate yourself into a local indigenous community while participating in a variety of ongoing sustainable and cultural volunteer projects. Bambu, labeled on traditional maps as “Bratsi,” is reached by following the Suretka river, where a very charismatic man named Danilo Gabb fulfilled a dream by building some amazingly beautiful structures using traditional indigenous methods. The real magic, however, is what happens in and around these structures.
Tropical Adventures initiated and exclusively operates a volunteer program with the local community to foster economic development.
Volunteers at our Bambu Indigenous Program help the community with an array of activities. You will truly engage in the local activities of the family that you are living with.
Typical volunteer responsibilities include:
Volunteers can expect to work a minimum of 20 hours per week.
You can choose to stay with a host family or at our Bambu Cultural Center. Three meals are always included.

This program is located about a forty minute drive from Puerto Viejo, the popular tourist town. This gives you the opportunity to help out during the week and take advantage of our many tours during the weekends. The program is also close to the Panamanian border. It is only a couple hours to paradise like Bocas del Toro. At this program, you will not find restaurants, stores, cell phones or internet cafes. Bambu on maps shows as “Bratsi.”
