Believe it or not there is no national lifeguard program in Costa Rica despite the vast number of tourists and residents who visit our beaches each day. Guardavidas (Lifeguards) Costa Ballena is an independent non-profit association that provides essential lifeguard services in the region with the support of the Municipality of Osa . Trained and certified by the National Coast Guard, we register over 1000 preventions and save over 60 lives each year. In addition to this we run regular training sessions for locals and youth-at-risk and a junior lifeguard program to teach young people how to stay safe in the ocean.

Your support is essential to our success. Lifesaving equipment, overhead and half the lifeguard salaries are dependent on donations from the community. Together we save lives.
