Who Are We?
In the mid 90's Jakera was born in Venezuela in the humble fishing Village of Playa Colorada which is still the base for our Jakera Club Foundation today .
We started out by taking groups of travellers into the more remote parts of the country like the Orinoco Delta where we met the Warao people who have inhabited this part of the country for the past 20 odd thousand years . A friendly and hospitable people who live a simple life of hunting and gathering, they have no bad words in their language, no way of offending anyone .
We borrowed their favourite word , "Jakera" , which is used as a greeting or a farewell or just to say everything is A OK .
Years later when we set up in Costa Rica and began to embrace the Pura Vida lifestyle we came to realise that Jakera in fact means Pura Vida ! We took this as a sign that we were on the right path.
Today Jakera has three bases open to young travellers and adventure seekers from around the globe who are looking to nurture and nourish their bodies and minds, in Costa Rica, Cuba and Colombia.
We teach Spanish , Culture , dancing , surfing and what ever else our host country has to offer .
Giving back to the community is essential for us and the core of or vision. We do this through volunteer work.
Through Jakeraclub we support the kids of the local community where we are based.
