Reviews

AMAZING.
"Finding a project where I was certain that my contribution was productive and of value to a local community was of utmost importance to me and that is exactly what I found here. I didn't have to look far in Campeche to see the real positive influence that the projects are having there, and it is this that has left a lasting impact on me. During the months of July and August this year, I spent my time volunteering both on the community projects, as well as the turtle conservation programme. Learning and witnessing first-hand the threats to turtle hatchlings and mothers on the beach was a real eye-opener to how fragile our ecosystem is, however, the dedication and enthusiasm that is poured into this project is admirable. Waking up in a hammock on a beach in the heart of Mexico is also an experience in itself. Working with this organization offers volunteers a well-rounded experience with the number of projects you can get involved in. From learning about Permaculture and how to live a more zero-waste lifestyle, to engaging with the local community at the weekly green market and learning about Mexican culture. Not to mention the wonderful people I had the joy to work with who made my time extra special. I cannot recommend the experience enough to other individuals, it is hard work but extremely rewarding and I have returned home even more motivated than before to do my bit to protect our planet. I will most definitely be returning!"- Rhona Macdonald
