WHAT TO EXPECT

Welcome to Costa Rica! This beautiful country in Central America is known for its amazing outdoors, lush jungles and mountains, and an abundance of wildlife. It is home to some of the hottest surf spots and beach towns, populated by friendly, laid-back Ticos and Ticas, and is hands down one of the best places to unwind in nature.

 

On this trip, you can expect to spend a lot of time out on the waves, swimming or surfing, canyoning, and relaxing in hot springs. You'll even have an opportunity to give back and help clean up the beaches that are home to the nests of the endangered leatherback sea turtle.

Come join us for a 5 day 4 night getaway to this amazing country and learn to embrace the pura vida!

FAST FACTS

LEARN MORE

JUST FOR FUN

Locals refer to themselves as "Ticas" (for females) and "Ticos" (for males). The term is a mesh between the two words: Costa Ricans.

Costa Rica is one of the only countries in the world that runs almost entirely on renewable energy.

This amazingly and relatively small country holds an estimated 5% (!!) of the world's biodiversity — that's wild!

TRIP NOTES

  • Book your flights into and out of Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport, also known as Liberia International Airport in Costa Rica (not to be confused with the country Liberia!).

  • With the goal of integrating an element of social impact into this trip, there may be a beach clean-up opportunity, which increases the chance of survival for the endangered local leatherback turtles by creating a safer environment! This activity is optional.

  • Costa Rica tends to be more expensive than other Central American and South American countries. 

About Costa Rica

​Located in Central America, Costa Rica is a popular destination for those who are traveling to a Latin American country for the first time, as it is known to be extremely safe and many locals also speak some level of English. Ecotourism also draws in people who love nature and the outdoors.

This beautiful country is known for its lush jungles, surf towns, numerous waterfalls, coffee and chocolate plantations and of course, the amazing and relaxed approach to life that the locals embrace - the "pura vida" or the "pure life." You might hear this term used commonly as a greeting or farewell, to serve as a reminder to stop and savor the little pleasures of life!

If it's not the natural environment, it's the food; if it's not the food, it's the people. Whatever it might be, you are bound to fall in love with many of things (if not all!) that Costa Rica has to offer.

GOOD TO KNOW

  • Language: Spanish (and many locals also speak some level of English).

  • Currency: Costa Rican colón.

  • Costa Rica is located in Central America.

  • Daily expenses tend to be higher in Costa Rica than other Latin American countries. 

  • Weather can be rainy, cooler in the mountains, warmer on the beaches; but in any scenario, be prepared for lots of insects and mosquitos.
