Give and Surf’s Re-Vamped Video About Voluteering!

Give and Surf, a non-profit benefiting education of the indigenous community of Bocas del Toro, Panama has updated their video on volunteering. I volunteered with them last December and it is a experience I will never forget. Please consider volunteering or donating at http://www.giveandsurf.org

    How safe is the volunteer program? I am so interested in going but my husband fears for my safety. How about communication? Did your cell phone work so you can stay in contact with family/friends?

    • Hi Dayana! I traveled to Bocas del Toro after flying into San Jose, Costa Rica alone. I took a shuttle to Bocas del Toro which was exciting because I was able to see the country side of Costa Rica and do the land crossing into Panama. You could take a flight to Panama City instead and then a flight to Bocas del Toro, where the volunteer coordinators will meet you. The living conditions are cabinlike and rustic. Where I stayed did not have electric outlets but did have minimal electricity and running water. Out where you stay and where the school is, there is no cell phone connection, but we averaged a trip to the main island (Isla Colon) every other day where you can get free wifi to connect with your loved one. It helped me a lot, I felt that I speak Spanish as most of the locals off the main island do not, but speaking Spanish is not mandatory. I recommend getting in touch with Give and Surf via facebook or email. I hope that answered your questions!

Tell me what you think!
