Did this in costa rice with the turtle conservation project in matapalo. It was a great experience, best of which was when we got to release the baby turtles into the sea! The downside was patrolling the beach in all weather in the pitch black knowing that poachers were around armed with machetes! We didn't even get any danger money, but effectively were risking our life's! I got to learn lots about the olive Ridley turtles and also got to see a turtle laying her eggs. Was a very enriching experience but wasn't impressed with the minimal accommodation and ants all over our food. And black beans and rice were definitely not great after being served them for breakfast, dinner and tea!
