Today we ask that everyone arrives on a flight no later that early afternoon. If your only flight is in the evening, we prefer that you arrive on the 15th. Upon arrival to the San Jose (SJO) Airport we will be making the drive north to the area of Turrialba. This first day will be a travel day and we’ll be having a small gathering for dinner allowing everyone to meet, break the ice, and discover what is going to be an amazing six days of adventure, fun, and education!
In the evening we will have an orientation along with an introduction to what contributes to Costa Ricans being the happiest people on the planet. On the eve of what will be the best part of the trip (visiting the rural village of Sitio de Mata) we plan to give you a jump start on what to expect and how bringing your students down can help make the happiness virus become contagious as they immerse themselves with Costa Rican families. (Meals: Dinner).
