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.

Costa Rica jungle

Real great energy from the moment you arrive on camp.

I just loved all the surveys. I do feel it would be great to see more of the final reports and data collected and have copies available to read.

Getting involved

I enjoyed getting involved with as much as possible! Doing turtles, then birds, then yoga. Love it so much!

Maybe for people staying longer some kind of pastoral support would be useful.

I had the most amazing time here and would recommend it 100%!

Social atmosphere

The best part was the community atmosphere and social atmosphere, the amount of animals and location.

I'd like to see more research resources, amount of surveys / spaces on surveys, and freedom regarding where we can / can't go.

A great time

The best aspect was the experience (turtles), people, toilets, wifi, trip options (although expensive).

Would like more info pre travel, field brief, more info about camp life / facilities and extra costs involved.

I've had a great time! Thank you!

Costa Rica wildlife

Staff at camp put loads of work into building new and practical accommodation and new tables when more volunteers arrived. Health and safety was very informative and reassuring. Science and specific survey presentations were very interesting and explain how to do things and why we're doing them. I'm fascinated by turtles and managed to see a turtle nesting in the day time. The surveys were a really nice walk along the beach at moonlight/ sunrise.

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.
