Volunteer in Latin America

If you’re looking to volunteer in South and Central America, or spend some of your gap year in the region, Frontier has a huge amount of options. We also offer two adventure travel tours – the Central America Ethical Adventure Trail and the South America Ethical Adventure Trail. These professionally guided adventure tours explore some of the greatest natural and man-made wonders of Latin America as well as taking part in a variety of adventure sports and activities. Natural and man-made sites include Machu Picchu, the Uyuni Salt Flats, Lake Titicaca, Palenque, Tikal and Copan. Adventure activities include scuba diving, kayaking, zip-lining and volcano boarding.

Volunteering options include conservation volunteering placements such as our Costa Rica Big Cats, Primates and Turtle Conservation project, in which volunteers take part in wildlife conservation surveying in the amazingly biodiverse country of Costa Rica. We also offer medical volunteering placements in Honduras, journalism placements in Argentina, teaching places placements Peru, Honduras and Ecuador, and opportunities to learn Spanish in Honduras and Costa Rica.

For more information on any of our projects in South and Central America, take a look at our listings below. Click on “Apply Now” and complete our online application form. A volunteer advisor will then give you a call back to find the best placement for you, whatever you want to experience or achieve.
