Volunteering in Costa Rica - 2 Girls Experience

There's a LOT of opportunities to volunteer in Costa Rica- I do know that. From protecting turtle eggs to feeding a baby sloth at a refuge to teaching English to the locals or working on an organic farm, there's a plethora of things to get into if you're interested in volunteering in Costa Rica. And I also know you usually have to pay for the privilege of doing so.

I got the chance to talk to with 2 young women, Stephanie and Louise, who were right in the middle of their 'volunteering' experience. They happened to be teaching English in a couple of the schools around the La Fortuna area. Although we don't mention it in the video, they booked their 'experience' through a company on the internet called: i-to-i Volunteering, which to me, is merely a 'travel agency' for volunteering, but the girls were happy with them and they appear to have a strong, positive presence on the internet. There's a lot of things the girls looked for when researching a company to use, but since they were both wanting to teach English they wanted a company that dealt with TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certification. Anyway,,,,

Here's what Stephanie and Lousie had to say about their Costa Rica volunteering experience about 3 weeks in:
