Tenerife Whale and Dolphin Project
Submitted by Aimee Stevenson - Plymouth University | June 24, 2018
When I arrived I was greeted by Isobel who then took a group of us back by taxi. When we got to the house we were given a tour and were shown the main living areas. The itinerary included beach cleans, boat trips and coastal lookouts. These were all amazing experiences that allowed me to understand the project better. The boat trips were amazing as we got to see the whales and dolphins and gather data about their numbers and behaviors. The house needs some TLC but it was livable. Everyone on the project was like-minded and easy to get along with and the staff were all amazing. I would highly recommend this project to anyone.
A young treasure of a project
Submitted by Sascha Pare - Southampton | June 17, 2018
I discovered a new world when I came to Caye Caulker and explored the reef. The diversity of fish species, corals and projects we were offered was amazing, there really is something for everyone. I particularly enjoyed surveying the caribbean spiny lobster and learning about them, and of course loved the diving. The project is still young and needs development and structuring but it has huge potential. The weather and climate often dictate what activities can be carried out, which means that some afternoons we had to occupy ourselves and show initiative. It was a life-changing experience and definitely uncovers the need to protect our oceans.

Joyful living in the jungle
Submitted by Jacob Omondi | June 16, 2018
What more could you dream of having sun kissed beaches a 10 minute walk away, monkeys swinging from the trees above your cabin and macaws flying overhead. Any expectation I had coming into this was blown away and left me in awe. I would recommend this project which has been a once in a lifetime experience I will not forgot.
Time in the jungle
Submitted by Lauren Gomez Cullen | June 16, 2018
I spent 2 weeks in the jungle and could definitely have spent a few more. The wildlife is incredible and the variety of surveys is amazing. You can go on as many as you like and its a great opportunity to get to know your camp-mates. Camp is great, with so many books available to read and you'll find that you'll never get bored. The food is also delicious - I didn't miss meat once! If I weere to recommend any extra activities I would definitely say the chocolate farm. The owners are lovely and the chocolate and fruit is delicious.

Having never been to Costa Rica before, I feel lucky that my first visit was through Frontier. I felt safe and whenever I had any queries Sara would help. I LOVED helping teach in the schools and would have loved to have done more of that like how it said it would be online, however I realise things are aren't easy over here! (maybe rephrase project description online). The country is beautiful and I feel thankful I could help albeit in small parts. Thank you for a life changing experience :)
