My wife and I spent a week volunteering at Bolita and we loved every minute of it! The location is so perfect - right smack in the middle of wilderness, certainly off the "beaten trail". Waking up to the sound of macaws, hanging out in hammocks, hiking the wonderful trails... paradise!
Staying as volunteers meant we got to stay for free, in exchange for only a few hours of work each day. It was a pleasure to help out with such a beautiful and meaningful project, I'd love to go back and stay longer! Check out our blog post for more details & some photos we took there.
