Volunteer Reviews

The reviews are written from our volunteers – and they expressed their honest opinion about the organization and their volunteer experience. Most of the reviews can be found on Abroad Reviews and GoAbroad.

You can also contact the past volunteers, and ask them any questions you may have! Ask us to get in touch with past volunteers and we will pass on their email addresses and contact details to you. That way you can find out first hand what it is like to volunteer with GLV in Costa Rica !
