At a Glance

Welcome to stunning Costa Rica, ecologically diverse, geologically thrilling, and packed with flora and fauna as fascinating as the people. Your eight days here will fly by—literally, with you strapped into “Sky Trek,” a series of zip lines soaring 500 feet above the rainforest. This is the trip for adrenaline-loving adventurers. From dawn to dusk, you will accomplish unbelievable feats like working alongside wildlife experts to protect endangered sea turtles, rappelling down breathtaking rainforest waterfalls, witnessing the spectacle of one of the world’s ten most active volcanoes, and trekking the rainforest to take a dip in a waterfall pool. You will feel like a local as you interact with villagers in the remote town of Parismina and prepare a traditional meal, then lend a hand making crafts. And you’ll work alongside scientists helping to rehabilitate exotic wildlife, then patrol a beach at night with head lamps and watch for turtles coming ashore to lay their eggs. In just eight days, you‘ll do more than some people do in 80 years!
