I would suggest that you begin your search online as the majority of volunteer schemes are going to have websites with plenty of information regarding the exact services that they offer. Whether you want to assist with the preservation of nearly extinct leather-back turtles alongside surfing or want to teach English in the mountains alongside trekking and learning about ecological preservation, Costa Rica is the place to head for. It is an exceptionally naturally bio-diverse country that contains six per cent of the world’s species and consequently twenty-five per cent of the country is protected national park. There are exquisite rainforests and mountains relatively near to mind-blowing beaches, so it really is an incredible place to visit.
If you want to volunteer in Latin America I would recommend trying to find a programme that houses you with a host family as this is an ideal way to create ties into the local community as well as being a sure-fire way of improving your Spanish. Surprisingly, teaching English is also a great way to do this as you will find that you frequently end up communicating in and listening to Spanish despite the fact that the classes are meant to be in English.
