From pristine cloud forests to the Pacific coast’s famous surf, experience some of the world’s most incredible scenery and exotic wildlife—and make a lasting impact while you’re there. Spend five days volunteering with a sea turtle project to help ensure these endearing creatures are around for future generations to admire. Then, hike through misty cloud forests and get your heart racing on optional activities in the lush wilderness. Give some of your time to this beautiful country and a worthy cause, and you’ll be rewarded with an experience you can really treasure. Gain a real sense of accomplishment and take home more than photographs.
