We are a Youth With A Mission base; a missions center that exists to share the Gospel in the rural villages and to create a spiritual change in the Nicoya Peninsula. We are committed to hospitality and providing a place of reconnection with God for believers and Christian workers. We are an outreach focused ministry, serving the community around us and engaging in community development. We work to give a Bible to every home in the province of Guanacaste. Our dream is to send missionaries out from Guanacaste to the places in the world least reached with the Gospel.

We are located in the countryside of the North-West of Costa Rica, in a province called Guanacaste. Guanacaste is famous for its beaches, national parks and beautiful nature. Our home village is a typical rural village, surrounded by farmlands, in the central area of the Nicoya Peninsula, about 40 min from the closest town, Nicoya (and about a 1,5 hours from the closest beaches).
We have a permanent missionary team that is responsible for the different ongoing ministries. Local and international volunteers and visiting teams are an important support for the staff and multiply the impact. Discipleship Training School students from all over the world join us once a year on a journey to know God and make Him known. We are preparing to start a 3-month intensive Bible course in 2025. We love the family-like atmosphere of our base!
After serving with YWAM Heredia, Costa Rica for many years, in 2005, the Silva family was sent to pioneer a new location in Guanacaste. After four months the Lord opened the doors for permanent ministry location in the village of Corral de Piedra. The ministry was started in the local and surrounding communities through kids' club, youth meetings, English teaching and soccer ministry. During the early pioneer years the Silva family were the only long-term staff, therefore visiting teams and short-term volunteers have played a significant role in the growth and development of the ministry. Since then, little by little, God has been bringing more people with long-term commitment to join our missionary team.
