First time volunteering abroad

The teaching project in Costa Rica was my first experience of volunteering. I wanted to gain some insight into working in Central America and improve my Spanish. The project fully met all my expectations. The variety of activities to get involved with really took me out of my comfort zone and provided a great challenge. I have learnt about new cultures and ways of life. In particular, the recycling and environment work in Puerto Jimenez. What really made the project work, was the professionalism shown by Sara (the teaching and community project coordinator). Sara formulated an excellent week's program so I earned maximum experience. Sara was highly supportive, flexible, considerate and good fun to be with. Sara is a true ambassador for Frontier and its programs.

Amazing Month

Spent fours weeks with Frontier as part of a longer stay in Tenerife. Loved every minute of it. The group of existing volunteers were very welcoming, the staff very approachable and friendly. The boat trips were the obvious highlight but other activities such a the coastal surveys were great as well.

The boat crews were generally very welcoming of volunteers, especially those that worked for Neptuno, but better communication on their part about when boats were and weren't going out would have been good. The project house location could also be frustrating for some as a forty minute or longer bus ride was required every day to get the the ports.

Minor things aside, the project was amazing and I would jump on a chance to come back or go on another Frontier expedition.

Mandible crested Toucan

Not only is this an incredible project that allows you to see amazing wildlife, but socially it was great too, meeting people from all walks of life. No matter how long you stay for, you won't want to leave Camp Osita, the friends, the beautiful views and even the howler monkeys waking you at 5am.

Amazing

This project was an amazing experience and I would love to do another project with Frontier. You go on a whale watching boat three times a week and do one coastal survey on the cliffs! The only thing that I didn't really like was the communication with the boats and the staff here at Frontier. The boats didn't let us know when they weren't going out on a few occasions we had waited for a few hours just to hear that they weren't going out.

Madagascar Diving

It's overall been a really good experience, food and lodging was better than expected. The diving has been great as well! Security could be improved slightly around the camp, though the head guard is awesome.
