Volunteering in Costa Rica Great experience! We went to a dental clinic, a homeless shelter, a special needs home and an area where we saw a ton of kids that needed dental exams. (Also in a relatively low socioeconomic area) Also did dental checkups at a school.
Volunteer Costa Rica: I had a fantastic experience all the way around with ABV. From the time I inquired about their programs, to almost the day before I left to come to Costa Rica, ABV was continually in touch with me making sure everything was arranged, taken care of, answered any questions I had. ABV is a very professional organization and one I would volunteer with again.
Volunteer Costa Rica: Our projects are open to individuals as well as groups. We know that volunteers play a vital role in the conservation efforts: without outside assistance, these projects would be lost. Join them and make a difference!
Volunteer Costa Rica: I was lucky enough to volunteer at a hospital where I would help care for the babies or kids whose parents could not always be with them. There are not enough nurses to care for all of the kids and the parents need to eat or sleep at some point and that is where the rest of the volunteers and I come in. We would help take care of the children.
Volunteer Costa Rica: From beginning to end though, you are taken care of. Someone picks you up from the airport, our host was always there for us and very helpful, and we were only ever on our own on the weekends when we decided to do excursions, which was our own choice.

Volunteer Costa Rica: I found the program to be very helpful and worthwhile. I found it very interesting and helpful for understanding different aspects of dentistry in different parts of the world.
Volunteer Costa Rica My favorite memory at the orphanage was when it was a child three year old birthday. When we sang for him and brought out the cake his face lit up. Once he received his present, a monster truck that could lift its front wheels in the air, I have never seen him so happy.
I am incredibly grateful for the experience that ABV gave me. The ABV program has opened my eyes to the value of experiencing another culture and learning another language.
Have fun and make your time last
Estoy más que complacido por todo lo que ABV me ha ayudado. Desde antes de venir a Costa Rica, ya el programa me estaba facilitando grandemente el proceso de solicitar y completar cada uno de los requisitos para participar en el programa. Es muy fácil de completar, si tienes una duda tienen un muy buen sistema de “online chat” el cual uno puede usar cada vez que tiene cualquier tipo de duda.
