My daughter went to Costa Rica with Frontier in June 2017. This organisation is awful and I would not recommend them to any student wanting to volunteer abroad. The project they offered on their website was not delivered and what's more they had no intention of delivering it as it did not exist. The substitute offered in Costa Rica was an inferior project to that paid for and all they did was make excuses. While out in Costa Rica they withdrew the project from their website, claiming it was misleading. They have no representatives in Costa Rica and their reply to emails was very slow. The Costa Rica Learning Academy CRLA was brilliant and I would advise people to go through them directly and cut out Frontier completely. My daughter had a brilliant time but it was down to the school and the people she met, nothing to do with Frontier. They are only interested in taking your money. Great if everything goes according to plan, but once you have an issue they are totally unhelpful.

Just reached Costa Rica with the trail, and looking forward to a month at the rainforest conservation camp. It's been a blast so far, visiting three different Mayan sites, in Mexico, Honduras and Guatemala. We've been diving, volcano boarding, trekking, tubing and lots more. I'm loving my group and the trail leader and wish it wouldn't end!

The project is excellently managed and when participating you can see the reasons for all the surveys you do. The staff work tirelessly to ensure you get the most out of the project.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Ethical Adventure Trail and am therefore pleased overall with my experience. The countries we visited, activities we did and the people we met were brilliant.

I could not fault the trail leader from start to finish. Her travelling experience and Spanish were indispensable. She was also friendly, fun and compassionate which I found to be essential when I was unwell. The trail would not have been the same without her!

Best aspects of the project:
-location of base camp, beautiful and lots of potential to become an enjoyable place to live.
-access to preservation zone of the reef, incredible to be able to see relatively unspoilt marine life
-being able to come to the south island and meet locals
-flexibility in the project and being able to have a say in what we did during the week/made for dinner etc.
