Review for Frontier's Costa Rica climate change project

The best aspect was being close to nature, alongside other people who are passionate about nature.

I think for short term volunteers there could have been more intense and variable fieldwork/ exploration. I would set a minimum recommended stay of at least four weeks.

Staff were all working professionally and transfer, briefing etc. was all conducted in the best possible way.

Costa Rica trails

The best aspects of the project were the trails and the camp community. The areas that could be changed are a second hammock and fewer trails simultaneously. Could mention that the airline terminal is outside of the main airport.

Thank you, I've had an incredible week!

Conservation research

The best aspects were the staff on camp, the surveys and leadership opportunities, and the conservation research. I would have liked more information to be given before the trip.

Before i came to camp i wasn't sure what i was expected to do. However, camp changed that and i've grown into a much more confident researcher.

Tropical living

When you're camping in a tropical country the living conditions are going to be more strained than in Western Countries. Despite this, the accommodations went above and beyond what they could have been and we were well taken care of under the project manager.

Amazing trip

The best aspect is the amazing location, met lots of amazing people, saw tons of wildlife

Could improve with a wider range of activities more often, could do with more activities/exercises to allow new volunteers to mix with volunteers who had been there a while.

Overall it was an amazing trip. I had a great time and would love to go back to Costa Rica again, just wish I had stayed longer.
