I can honestly say that joining the GVI Turtle and Lemon Shark Conservation Project was the best thing I have ever done. It is an experience I will value for the rest of my life. Right from the very beginning with the field manual I knew this trip was going to be amazing but nothing can prepare you for how stunning it is. I remember one day, I was chilling in the hammock before dinner when I saw a juvenile Lemon Shark and a ray. I called everyone and we watched the shark almost beach itself on a few occasions. However the best experience for me was when I was lucky enough to see not 1 or 2 but 3 Hawksbill Turtles lay their eggs all in one day. It was magical. The staff were so knowledgeable and were always happy to help. I have learnt to cook food for 25 people with very limited cooking equipment and ingredients, loved every Friday BBQ night and made friends for life.

I did a month long program in Quepos, Costa Rica with volunteers ages 18 and older. It involved working with children and organizing various activities for them including teaching songs in English. It was an amazing program that allowed me to make an impact on so many different childrens' lives. Additionally, we did some activities to promote sustainable development including beach cleans that involved the participation of locals. I HIGHLY recommend this program. I was able to walk away from this experience knowing that I made an impact, and also with new long lasting friendships.

I spent a month in Costa Rica in 2015 on GVI's U18 programme. There was a week of cultural activities, two weeks volunteering, renovating a school and then a week of adventure activities. It was honestly the best month of my life and I can't sing GVI's praises highly enough. The work they do in the communities there is incredible and and I was honoured to be able to contribute to that by making the primary school in Roncador a safer, cleaner, fresher environment for the kids to learn in. It is an experience I will treasure for the rest of my life and I would highly recommend going on any GVI programme as they are an incredible organisation.

Had a fantastic day trip to Lapland. Can't recommend it enough. All of the activities were brilliant, and all of the staff we encountered were professional, courteous, but most importantly fun. It's great value for money.
