Being immersed in a Spanish culture is an invaluable lesson in language, watching lava pour down a volcano’s slopes is an unforgettable geology lesson, and hiking in a tropical rainforest is the ultimate class in natural history. Meeting Costa Ricans and sampling local foods will enhance one’s understanding of other cultures. Add to this an adventure like a zip-line canopy tour or a surfing lesson and students will get a truly enjoyable education in becoming world citizens!

Some sample highlights of what Costa Rica has to offer for a memorable and Unique Travel Experiencies.:
