Volunteering in Latin America

South and Central America has a great mix of history, culture, nightlife and variety, making it an ideal location to volunteer abroad or to take part in an adventure travel vacation.

In Costa Rica, Frontier conservation volunteers on our Costa Rica Big Cats, Primate and Turtle Conservation project can help with conservation and survey work with some of the world’s most iconic animals. We also offer a variety of teaching and language courses, allowing volunteers to improve their Spanish while earning their TEFL certificate teaching English to local kids.

Our Central America Ethical Adventure Trail is a group trek taking in Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala, Nicaragua and Costa Rica, visiting many of these countries’ most amazing locations and unique activities, while also offering the chance to take a volunteering placement as part of the trip. With a similar agenda, our South America Ethical Adventure Trail visits Bolivia, Ecuador and Peru.

Community and welfare placements are also available, including the Venezuela Healthcare project - a medical volunteering program at a local health clinic – and the Bolivia Child Refuge project.

To find out more about adventure travel and volunteering in Latin America, click on “Apply Now”, fill out the online application form and a volunteer adviser will call you back to help find the perfect project for you.
