1- How was the local ABV Coordinator and the support provided in-country?
The support was great, they made sure I was able to reach my destination safely without any worry.

2- What was the most surprising thing you experienced?
I was most surprised by hours free I was during the program. They left plenty of time to check out the area and experience Costa Rica. If you want more working hours you can ask for more tasks.

3- What was most difficult to experience?
The most difficult experience may have been the language barrier while speaking with locals, I should have studied Spanish harder.

4- Any tips for future volunteers… (clothing, travel, personal items, donations)
I would recommend leaving time available before or after your volunteer program to visit the rest of Costa Rica and Central America.

5.1-Other things volunteers should know:
a. You will meet ABV volunteers from all over the world.

  1. The living conditions are bare (not hot water, few modern luxuries)
  2. Keep an open mind and experience your stay.

6- Personal Paragraph (ABV Program Testimonial):
I enjoyed my stay at the program, I was worried that a 6 week program would be too long, but I wish I could stay longer.

7- How would you describe your accommodation, meals, security (e: host family, on-site, shared)
The meals were plenty and well balanced; they do however get repetitive. The host family was great and facilities functioned well.

My favorite memory of this trip was meeting all of the other ABV volunteers.

9- How was the ABV USA support prior traveling?
ABV was very helpful with information about visa passports, flight plans, etc.

10 – Are you willing to speak to other potential ABV volunteers?
Yes
