A world of possibilities awaits you with Frontier. You could be spending memorable days scuba diving off the brilliant white sand beaches of Fiji or discovering Madagascar on a conservation project with lemurs and chameleons.

WWith 25 years experience in managing volunteering and adventure travel projects, we can find you the perfect project whatever you want to achieve.
You can contribute to positive change in the future of marginalised communities with one of Frontier's development projects.

KarynAge: 51 or olderFemaleBristol, NHCosta Rica Animal Rescue02/18/2016Response from FrontierHi Karyn Of course we recognise that it would be cheaper to go direct with the in-country partner. However, please bear in mind that booking through Frontier offers various advantages that you would not have if you went straight to the partner in Costa Rica. Initially, the partner does not have the capability to advertise their programs internationally, so the chances are you would never have heard about them otherwise. Secondly, Frontier has offered you pre-departure support and legal reassurance that would not be provided by a local partner. Our London-based team of volunteer advisors, one of which you had specifically assigned to help you, and all the infrastructure surrounding that, cost significant sums of money to maintain. Finally, the sanctuary very commonly gets booked up, and you would have no way of knowing this until you turned up in Costa Rica hoping to attend the program. I'd also like to mention that Frontier is a not-for-profit organisation, so volunteer contributions go towards the running of our worldwide conservation and community initiatives. Thanks.

Honestly, there is nothing major I would change. But, I had the privilege to have CIT's on my trip. I know that not every trip has a CIT, so in the future I think it would be great for every trip to have a CIT.
