Lila and her boyfriend Joe spend 2 weeks in Piedras Blancas National Park, and loved it. Here is her review.
“We spent 2 weeks volunteering in Piedras Blancas National Park in March 2019, based at El Bonito ranger station. We were doing things like clearing trails through the park, putting up new signs and installing trap cameras. We were surrounded by incredible wildlife the entire time; toucans, macaws, agoutis, squirrel and white-faces capuchin monkeys, leaf-cutter ants and many more. Janina went above and beyond to find us the right volunteering programme and make sure we were well prepared. She was also super helpful with any questions we had, and we even ended up going to Panama after we finished on her recommendation. The park rangers were very funny, and patient with our low level of Spanish. Walking around the park whilst on tasks with them was like we had our own guide as they have incredible knowledge of the wildlife in the park. Most importantly, being in the jungle for those 2 weeks was an experience I’ll never forget and I’m so happy I had the chance to do it.”
