Costa Rica is a fascinating country- I loved staying with a host family because it was great having Spanish lessons whilst being able to talk to the host family in Spanish in the evenings.My gap year diver representative was really helpful. I went in July which falls within the rainy season, so don't expect great visibility, but the diving was still fantastic and I saw loads of wicked stuff. There were loads of other activities on offer aside from diving- my highlights were the canopy safari tour and the guided tour through the Manuel Antonio national park.

Absolutely fantastic! Everyone was really friendly and easy to get on with, the instructors were great and helped me sort out adding on Rescue diver to my program with no issues and were really flexible with what I wanted to do.
Mornings I was either in the classroom or on a morning dive, and the afternoons were mainly all diving, with a couple off to prepare for night dives.
Very easy to find good food, bars and great people.

What would you improve about this program?
I would not have taken the overnight bus down to Chumpon, though it was a good experience which I recommend, I thought the overnight train was much nicer.
