As a volunteer at Volunteer & Surf this was the most enthralling volunteer and adventure experience I could imagine. I recently had the pleasure of leading a group down for the last stages of their playground construction in March of 2011. The projects local knowledge and connection to the community is inspiring and we felt very in touch with our volunteer experience by construction the playground and teaching the local school children. The experience with the project included daily surf lessonsand by the second day I was riding the waves in by myself. I am an adventure seeker so I was really pumped to go zip lining, caving with bats, snorkeling, and kayaking around the bay.

FRONTEERING aims to arrange volunteer abroad and adventure travel experiences in places less visited and unspoiled. FRONTEERING’s projects help with true good causes in some of the last frontiers. Places where the need is greater, where there is more to lose and much more to gain. Join one of FRONTEERINGS Volunteer Abroad projects and visit these last frontiers while they are yet unspoiled and hopefully through our combined efforts we can keep it that way!
Imagine the sounds of night fading away while in the distance the horizon starts to brighten. You wake up listening to a serenade of thousands of tropical birds and an awakening jungle. Parrots fly overhead with their loud squawks, howler monkeys greet the sun with loud voices while you relax a few more minutes in your jungle hammock! Staring through the jungle canopy you see the blue sky lightening up between the trees.
It is this experience common in some of our volunteer projects and adventure travel trips in Central & South America that got me involved in setting up volunteer projects and adventure travel trips to help with long term sustainability of our last wildernesses and to protect it’s wildlife and the way of life of indigenous communities.
