Costa Rica

Explore, learn & serve

Our Costa Rica programs combine Spanish language instruction with adventure and service. Our interactive Spanish classes focus on cooperation and common vocabulary. 

Explore and discover the wonders of Arenal Volcano National Park, Manuel Antonio Beach, San Jose, the National Theater and Museum, Central Market, Parque Nacional Poas Volcano, and much more!

On our service trip, you’ll work with local partners on community service projects with the Santa Cruz School, Our Lady of Los Angeles Nursing Home, the recycling center, and the city of San Isadore.
