There are seven countries in Central America: Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Costa Rica and Panama. All the countries of the region boast an incredibly diverse set of vibrant cultures, awe-inspiring historical treasures, bustling cities and tranquil nature. Escape to places that hide magical waterfalls behind lush tropical vegetation and that fill your heart with the rhythm of thriving colourful towns. And the beauty doesn’t just lie on the shore. The underwater worlds off the coasts have just as much excitement to offer and coming up for breath means you’ll find yourself amidst an incredible array of island paradises. This region, small as it may be, has a wealth of all of the best things in life.
If you want to volunteer in Central America, we offer four volunteer programmes in Costa Rica, which include sea turtle research programmes, researching caimans, crocodiles, tree boas and mammals as well volunteering in a wildlife rescue centre whilst taking Spanish and yoga lessons and learning to surf!
