If you want to work hard with lots of time left to play on the weekends, I would highly recommend this program. It truly gives back as much as you are willing to put into it. Emily is the sweetest manager ever and makes you feel at home right away. The staff on the marine project are highly competent and really safe, and the program had some really cool partnerships with other conservation organizations. Kyle made my stay fantastic, taking time to answer all of my questions and going above and beyond while teaching my rescue diver course.
The living arrangements are charming and comfortable (huts of six) and the bathrooms were western style which was a downright delightful surprise. The extremely friendly local staff homecook delicious meals, there are gorgeous views...I signed up for a three month volunteer program and ended up staying for nine months because I loved it so much. Highly recommended!
