This adventure will keep you on the move and we will be everywhere from the famous Cloud-forest of Monteverde to a river that is the color of the sky due to a nearby volcano. You will be on a chocolate tour and rafting on one of the most scenic rivers on the planet according to National Geographic. A visit to the active volcano of Arenal and ziplining one of Costa Rica’s top zip lines. The kids will also have a chance to give back in offereing community service during their stay.
We will get plenty of time in the jungle during this adventure. The first night you will be staying in the scenic area of the Orosi valley. From here you will visit a local rural village and we will make our way to one of the most scenic rivers on the planet, the Pacuare River for our 3 day rafting trip. We will be immersed in the jungle for a number of nature hikes during the day and during the night. We will be traveling to the Caribbean coast and then to the active volcano of Arenal.
If you want to see the positive impact nature can have on people then this trip is the perfect chance. We are going to visit the rural village of Sitio de Mata where we have our sustainable community project. Here you will be surrounded by natural beauty and very relaxed, happy, and energetic people who understand the importance of taking care of our planet. We plan to then immerse ourselves in the nearby Pacuare River filled with some of the most astonishing scenery you can experience anywhere with 200ft waterfalls and canyon walls that rise 300ft high on each side.
One of our favorite tours as it allows us to combine three very distinct cultures. The first being the ancient indigenous tribe of Bri-Bri where we will visit their reserve and live as they live. The second is the Afro-Caribbean culture that populates the Caribbean side of Costa Rica with a culture as rich as it gets. The final is the Spanish culture of Costa Rica which is the majority of the population.
A favorite for many of our visiting groups is this itinerary which takes you to one of the best located ecolodges in all of Costa Rica, La Cusinga. After a visit to La Cusinga and the breath-taking views of the Pacific we will make our way to an even more unique area where you and your students will sleep behind a waterfall. Along with sleeping behind a waterfall you will be rafting one of the planets most scenic rivers and your students will have chance to do an environmental service project.
There are those special teachers that really love giving their kids the full rainforest experience. This is a trip where you can expect to hear one of the kids in the group scream SPIDER!, and then laugh it off as we learn about the over 350,000 different species of insects (and counting) in Costa Rica. We will also mix in some adventure and make a visit to see the sea-turtles!
This is a great adventure and gets the adrenaline of all the kids pumping from start to finish.
Volcano. We will be staying in the beautiful Manoa Hotel where you will have private bungalows, views of the volcano, and hotsprings on the hotel grounds.
