WHAT MAKES KALU YALA SO SPECIAL?
“If you are looking for an experience that will absolutely change your life for the better, look no further. As an Outdoor Recreation intern, you will be living in the jungle. That’s right. You will be living a few miles away from the nearest small town which is about an hour away from Panama City on bus.” – John
HELP THE WORLD FALL IN LOVE WITH THE OUTDOORS
The Outdoor Recreation & Ecotourism Program is responsible for creating an active outdoor lifestyle at Kalu Yala. We will spend hours hiking, surfing, and swimming in rivers; learn trail building; lead groups of visitors through activities and excursions; and develop amenities that encourage recreation. You will be setting the precedent for how people live at Kalu Yala for decades to come, as well as setup economically viable outdoor activities for visitors. Interns will also get the unique opportunity to learn how to surf and develop a sustainable surf tourism excursion to compliment the many outdoor activities available on our jungle campus.
