Excellent

It's hard to sum up really. It is something that would have to be in your tastes, in which it completely fits mine. Being somewhere remote and surrounded by diversity, not just the nature but the people too!
I went there for the jaguars and I got the jaguars and so much more, such as turtles birds and even little anoles. You get to learn about what data collection implies and how it is processed to be used later and efficiently.
The staff there was excellent always trying to help and teach you about anything you are willing to learn. They also are not intimidating and are easily to befriend. As well as the other volunteers. It is always fun to be surrounded by like minded peers.

Just the overall learning of everything there was incredible. You learn much of the scientific process of data collection and about a world similar yet different from your own. The staff was so lovely making sure that you got to be involved.
