We have traveled with EcoTeach to Costa Rica for the last three years. Every year the students have an amazing experience working at a turtle research station getting hands on experience with researchers. We have also visiting elementary schools in rural Costa Rica, gone to butterfly gardens, participated in beach clean ups and visited a sloth sanctuary. It isn't all work, the kids get time to play as well. If you are looking for a unique experience where kids get hands on this is the trip to go on.
