I did a 1 week language and cultural programs and 3 weeks photo journalism work.
The pick-up from the airport was excellent, the guest house in the first week was perfect. The food was excellent, the people were all so nice. Our teacher Pratima was so passionate and gave a lot of insight in the cultural aspects of Nepal. Thank you for that Pratima!

The 3 weeks photo journalism was at the other side of Kathmandu, the guesthouse was clean, good food and the people also very nice. The house is located in a nice quiet area. I really enjoyed the football match that was organized by the sun with the other volunteers/interns. Ram, the journalist that helped me everyday is very nice, had good tips!
In total 4 of my photo stories were published online.

I would definitely recommend this this program to anyone who wants to do volunteer work in Nepal!

We were able to work with Casey for pre-travel with efficient time response and flexibilty! Hibiscus Travels was the absolute best! Genuine and pure customer service! All three service projects set up for us was well organized, extremely efficient, and we felt humbled and proud of the service we shared with Puntarenas. Hibiscus Travels also executed our meals and transportation very well! Unforgettable experience!

Hibiscus travel was amazing! It was the perfect way to get to know Costa Rica while making a difference in the community. They had great service options, each one was amazing. The coordinators always make sure you have a fabulous experience no matter the circumstance. It is very easy to get along with the Hibiscus staff and the house itself. It felt as if I was at home. The meals are great and a big money saver ! The people from each project site are wonderful are very caring. The service doesn't even feel like work. The people in charge of each site are always willing to teach more about Costa Rica so you can fit right in. Apart from service projects, Hibiscus offers great opportunities for adventure. I am definitely considering returning once again. Fell in love with the program as well as the city of Puntarenas itself. I recommend staying with Hibiscus Travels.

Lauren was amazing even before we left the States. She was able to take care of everything from the moment we landed until the moment we left Costa Rica. Hibiscus travels location is great way to experience the best of Puntarenas, Costa Rica. My group and I were able to work on cleaning the beach, soup kitchen and feeding homeless and helping at Hogar Cristiano. The entire experience was amazing and unforgettable. I will definently work again with Lauren and Hibiscus travels.
