Costa Rica is one of the 20 most biodiverse countries in the world. It is home to 26 National Parks and is known for its beaches, volcanoes and biodiversity.

More than 500,000 species are found here, representing 4% of the total species estimated worldwide, despite the country being only 0.03% of the world’s landmass.

Approximately a quarter of Costa Rica is made up of protected jungle. Raleigh works to preserve this biodiversity, increase the resilience of local communities to climate change and improve access to education.

Choose between 4, 7 or 10 weeks, and we'll guide you through the adventure of a lifetime.

You could be part of three exciting and impactful projects:

Community Project
Work with the local community to improve access to education for indigenous communities by developing the local infrastructure.

Environment Project
Help conserve Costa Rica’s biodiversity and improve access to national parks.

Adventure Project
Trek through rainforest and up volcanoes on a variety of stunning routes that tourists don’t get access to.
