Gapforce's Costa Rica Adventure is a spectacular opportunity for all students eager to explore Costa Rica's stunning sites and give back through a Turtle Conservation Project.
During their stay, students will explore Costa Rica's stunning jungles, volcanoes, and beaches. Though it is such a small country, Costa Rica is known for its biodiversity and variety of species. Students can expect plenty of hiking, surfing, snorkeling, and even ziplining! Some cool sites to look forward to include Monteverde's cloud forests, Arenal's volcanic slopes, and the sandy Caribbean coast. Then, they will dedicate a few weeks at a turtle conservation project, where they will help protect the population of the species at a famous nesting site. They may also tour a Cacao Farm and learn about the origins of chocolate!
