New Year's Resolution: More Voluntourism

By January 9, 2013

Follow me on:

Kathy Hagood volunteering at an elementary school in Costa Rica

When does a hotel stay turn into a good deed, too? Here's one way - when you check into the Tambor Tropical hotel on the Nicoya Peninsula in Costa Rica and take part in the hotel's volunteer program that benefits a local school. Guest writer Kathy Haygood recently took part in the hotel's guest volunteer program and used her love for animals to connect with the school children while reading to them and answering questions about animal life in North America. And when she wasn't volunteering at the school, Kathy had the chance to take full advantage of the hotel's many activities that include sea kayak tours, beach combing and enjoying an aromatherapy massage at the spa. Read all about her experience at Tambor Tropical. And start planning a 2013 voluntourism trip today!
