Any tips on what tours to do on the weekends for the new volunteers?
The only tours we did were Sambo Creek and the river Cangrejal which was excellent! Definitely worth going to.
What did surprise you must about the program, city, the experience in general?
I loved the fruit. A lot less developed then like what I’m used to. Not much more because my mom told me what to expect.
