About Program

Explore one of the most bio-diverse areas in the world and discover why the national phrase, "Pura Vida" or "Pure Life," is the perfect choice of words to describe life in Costa Rica!

Participants traveling to Costa Rica will work with our local partners to up-cycle debris collected off of beaches, teach English while working on their Spanish, work at an animal refuge center, and learn about and implement permaculture farming practices at a local high school.
