Volunteering in Bocas del Toro, Panama!

I am extremely excited to announce that I am going to be volunteering with Give and Surf, a non-profit in Bocas del Toro, Panama which empowers the indigenous community through education and community development.

As there are only one flight in and one flight out per day only four days per week, and the Bocas region is near the border of Costa Rica, I will be flying in and out of San Jose and spending New Year’s Eve and day in San Jose!

In less than a month’s time, I will be in Central America!
