thanks for bothering to read this.
let me introduce myself,I am 23yo,living in New Zealand,I speak fluent english and i was thinking of do a volunterring trip for a multitude of reasons,i could fill a book!..but there are so many countries out there is SA,each one sounding so intersting and fun...
my question..what would you recommend,i dont speak a word of spanish,planning to start spanish course though,also budget is not that high.
any ideas where i can meet friendly people,have a blast and take back memories that will last a lifetime?
Check out the Global Crossroads Volunteers website, im going to be volunteering through them at the end of this year for ~3 months. The price is fairly cheap, 2500usd gets you picked up from the airport, 3 meals a day, 1.5 weeks of spanish language classes, and a place live.
Im not sure what countries you are interested in but I do know that they work through peru and ecuador..not sure about the outher SA countries
volunteersouthamerica.net is a really good site. They have links to many organizations all across South America. They are all affordable and the need for Spanish varies.
