Costa Rica was and amazing experience from the very first moment getting picked up by Ligia at the airport.

Instantly I felt comfortable. She brought us to our home let us settle in and we had a very enjoyable dinner. We were given an orientation of the town plus some Costa Rican history which was amazing.

I have always wanted to go to Costa Rica I have seen pictures I even did a school report on the country when I was in 5th grade. Ever since I did the school project it was on my list of countries I wanted to travel to.

After my experience in Thailand I knew I wanted to do another uVolunteer program. When I saw that Costa Rica was a uVolunteer destination I knew I had to do it.

Costa Rica was and amazing experience from the very first moment getting picked up by Ligia at the airport. Instantly I felt comfortable. She brought us to our home let us settle in and we had a very enjoyable dinner. We were given an orientation of the town plus some Costa Rican history which was amazing. Ligia was also a very good tour guide in helping us plan our weekend get always. Since we work till Thursday I recommend traveling Thursday to Sundays around the country.

The community project was a lot fun. It was summer time so at first there were not that many children but as word got around it was not long before there was a line out the door of children waiting for us to arrive with our arts and crafts projects.

Overall one week was not enough time for this project but since I am a masters level student I only had my winter break available so I would recommend more but a week is still a great experience.

I will definetly do another uVolunteer project in the future.

At the end of my program, I left this report for uVolunteer. I hope it helps future volunteers have a good understanding of the uVolunteer program. I've also allowed uVolunteer to give out my email address to those interested in asking me questions about my trip and the uVolunteer program.
