Adrenalina Tours offers three great volunteering projects! By participating in one of these projects you will learn about Guatemala and its people in a different, more profound way and together with locals you will be working towards a better future. We will take care of all the logistics of your stay and we can give you some travel ideas to enable you to explore more of Guatemala after you’ve finished your time at the project.
Rescue Center is situated on a forested 45 hectare protected area on the shores of Lake Petén Itza next to the Peténcito Zoo. Volunteers live in a spacious two story wooden building with open, screened walls, situated in the middle of a beautiful tropical forest with comfortable wooden bunk beds, shower and toilet facilities and US-style 110V electricity. Volunteers eat and socialize at a separate kitchen/dining room rancho; there is a games room plus a very nice floating dock for late afternoon swims. Depending on the time of year, the Rescue Center in Petén hosts anywhere between 5 and 38 mostly international volunteers, ranging from veterinary students looking to gain practical experience working with tropical animals, graduate students carrying out research in wildlife management and rehabilitation, and backpack travelers (mochileros) who simply want to contribute their tourist dollars and sweat to the conservation of Guatemalan wildlife. Your volunteer work will be starting Mondays through Fridays (no starts during the weekends) and consist of helping in the daily feeding and caring for the animals, which can include parrots / macaws / spider and howler monkeys, owls, hawks, crocodiles, turtles, kinkajous and many more. It is important to understand that you cannot touch the animals or become accustomed to them, because they are treated to release them back in the wild.
If you want to learn about different fair trade plantations and contribute to its improvement, volunteering in our FECCEG project might be just for you! We can always use help in a lot of different areas, ranging from photography, video, and commercial promotion, to quality control and knowledge about rural development.
We don’t have any requirements for this project, except for a bunch of energy and creative thinking. Your travel and accommodation expenses are for your own account.
