NEW: Viva CubaRica - Combination Cuba & Costa Rica Gap Year Programs

By Jakera   Reviews (0)   0% Rating
New start dates - owing to popular demand for 2017 we have are more start dates for all our programs including our 6 week Learn Spanish & Volunteer program.

We love adventure travel, immersing in other cultures, spending time to understand how things work, enjoying nature and discovering our own potential along the way… and we think our clients love this too.

Why not consider combining our programs in Cuba with Costa Rica to create a CubaRican adventure? Start your traveling adventure in Cuba... one of the most vibrant and exciting travel destinations anywhere in the world. After enjoying 4 or 6 weeks of culture, dance and volunteering in Cuba come to Costa Rica for a perfect contrast; a natural paradise featuring cleansing surf and jungle.

Our programs are designed to give you an immersion into the local culture - to really let you see and understand what makes Cuba tick, and an opportunity to enjoy the cleansing 'pura vida' of Santa Teresa on the Nicoya Peninsula at our Jungle Surf Camp on the Pacific Coast.

About The Provider

Jakera have been running student programs and delivering travel solutions to clients around the Caribbean and South America since the mid 1990’s. In 2012 we completed a long planned project to bring our student clients to Cuba (we first traveled to Cuba in 2003).

We like to give our clients authentic experiences that bring you into contact with people living in your host country. We believe in the value of cultural immersion, beginning with language tuition but also understanding of how communities adapt to their environment; the political and economic situation that shapes how people live. Such experiences are life enriching and help give us the insights and energy to be able to reach our own full potential.

We hope you can join us on this exciting adventure and look forward to sharing a Cuba Libre with you soon - viva la vida!
