Fab!

I have previously volunteered with ivhq before so was excited to experience it again. I Had a great time volunteering with ivhq in Mexico and really loved my placement! Both the kids and the ladies were really welcoming and I still felt comfortable even though I don't speak Spanish. Would be great to come back and see the kids one day!

Volunteer Childcare Placement in Cambodia

The overall experience was amazing. I felt like I was really immersed in the culture and I managed to make close friends with some locals there. The accommodation was great but the food was a bit bland. It was a family home so I respect that they have opened up their home to us. Maybe just a variety of food choices and have the ability to help cook our meals would be great.

Turtle Paradise

This trip was definitely one for the books! I was initially pretty nervous since this was my first time out of country and I was alone, but this trip turned out to be everything I could ask for and more! Not only did we get to work directly with sea turtles every night but I met tons of amazing people and made some incredible memories at Playa Ostional, Costa Rica!

Loved it!

I loved the program and all volunteers! Very easy to form a community while traveling alone. I stayed with a host family and enjoyed it! At first I was nervous, I would be disconnected from the group not living at the Volunteer Inn, but that was not the case at all! I volunteered with the Teaching English and teaching abroad was such a cool experience- I LOVED it. The kids were amazing! If you come, just remember to drink lots and lots of water!

My Time In Costa Rica

In Costa Rica we were placed in Junquillal. We were right next to the beach at Verdi Azul with some very healthy food. Even when the showers were cold we still had fun. In morning work we go and clean up around Verdi Azul. Afternoon we help clean up the beach and other stuff to help baby see turtles and sometimes even dig them up and release them. Night patrol is late (and can be very hard). It lasts for three hours of walking with one break. In Costa Rica there will be a lot of rice with vegetables in them and beans. The most common sea turtle you will see during summer is the Olive Ridley. If a turtle laid it's eggs and you're not staying for 55 days or more you probably won't see them hatch. The IVHQ members and Verdi Azul members will be happy to answer all of your questions! I hope this tells you everything you want to know and have a great time!
