The price for 1 week is £850, 2 weeks is £1175, 3 weeks is £1505 and 4 weeks is £1830. The costs include shared accommodation in volunteer house, food (3 meals a day), airport pick up and drop off in Nueva Gerona, training and supervision, in-country and pre-departure support.
The costs don’t include flights (international or domestic), travel and health insurance, visa or any personal expenses. You are required to possess appropriate travel health insurance which will cover you throughout the duration of your time abroad and includes medical evacuation. You should also acquire insurance for extreme sports, if you plan to take on activities such as scuba diving.
To secure a placement and volunteer in Cuba, please complete and submit the form with your application payment of £195. If for some reason, your application is not accepted, we will reimburse this payment fully. However for those who are accepted, you will be required to pay 25% of the balance within the first 14 days, and the final balance 2 months before arrival. Once we have confirmed your place, you will receive an information package on the programme, suggested items to bring, how to travel there etc.
The dates below are just a guideline, and you are welcome to join from 1 week and up to 4 weeks in duration throughout the year. Volunteers should arrive on a Sunday and leave on a Sunday. Currently, the Cuban government only allows 2 volunteers at a time in Cocodrilo and thus we cannot accept more than this till this might change again.
Select the later flight on the Sunday, so you travel for departure (La Habana to Nueva Gerona) in the afternoon or evening. For return (Nueva Gerona to La Habana), select the earlier flight (should be in the early or late morning). It will not be possible to arrive/leave on other days of the week.
