Our Assistant Research Officer Bella Field has survived her first month in the jungle. Just like the rest of us it only took her a few seconds to fall in love with Carate. She tells us all about her experiences so far!
If you´re volunteering with Frontier in Costa Rica, you might want to do some traveling afterwards. But… where do you go? We've chosen four amazing places – based on our personal experiences, that you can easily get to from Puerto Jimenez.
Anyone who is leaving the project after a significant period of time will tell you that one of the main stresses of camp is the highly coordinated and deeply important activity of washing and drying laundry. Now, to the reader this task is one of the simplest household chores there is, but take away the washing machine, dryer and an environment devoid of humidity, you get a completely different situation.
The last two weeks at Camp Osita have been quite exciting and bizarre at the same time. At first we thought it was just the last bits of the rainy season – until we realized this was a bigger storm.
Our new camp has a brand new food menu! Have a look at the sort of meals we eat out in the jungle. It may be vegetarian but its all very delicious
Our conservation volunteer Mark Page has almost survived 6 weeks in the jungle and is very excited to tell you all about the experience!
There is a stunning variety of birds here on the Osa Peninsula, from the charismatic Scarlet macaws and Chestnut-mandibled toucans, to the colourful manakins and mysterious owls; like the Spectacled owl which makes an ominous call that sounds like a large sheet of tin being shaken (we often hear this owl on camp late at night)
We have a brand new camp location right next to Carate beach and the National Park. Find out how the developments have been coming on..
If you’re considering or already planning on going to Costa Rica you might wonder… what does a day as a volunteer look like? Keep reading and you will find out soon enough!
