CIEE Gap Year Abroad in Monteverde, Costa Rica – Service & Leadership

Video and Photos


Explore the natural wonders of Costa Rica, one of the world’s most unique, innovative, and wild countries. Travel to the rainforest, pristine beaches, dry forest, and wet and windy mountains.

In spectacular settings, you’ll delve into two wildly different internship projects and embark on multiday field trips – all related to core coursework taught in our mountaintop classrooms.

In your downtime, you’ll enjoy family meals at your homestay, hang out with friends in rural Monteverde, and meet local Costa Ricans who share your concern for the environment.

*You can create a duo program by combining any two CIEE Gap Year Abroad semesters and get 10% off the second semester.
