I spent 10 great weeks in Costa Rica to work in a wildlife project with marine turtles. The project was located in a very beautiful place in Guanacaste, in the north of Costa Rica.
When I arrived at the first day, I felt a little bit lost because I didn’t spoke Spanish that well and the project was remote from bigger cities and had no Wifi. But the people were very friendly and after a few days it felt like we were a big family. That was a thing I enjoyed very much, just like the beautiful beaches and the work with the turtles. I had the possibility to learn many things about conservation and the nature of Costa Rica. The work showed me how important it is to protect the environment and how interesting biology is.
All in all, I had an unforgettable time in Costa Rica and made many new and interesting experiences. Actually it was much more than I expected and definitely I recommend this project.
