    Immerse yourself in the “pura vida” lifestyle of Costa Rica! Base out of the tropical paradise of La Fortuna and experience all that this wonderful country has to offer through hiking, horseback riding, whitewater rafting and beach exploration. Travel to the Blue Zone on the Pacific Coast to learn about the diet and habits of one of the world's healthiest and longest-living populations. Focus on wellness through exercise, diet, and lifestyle.

    This program is directed by the fabulous Maria Molina, who ran the Spanish immersion programs from 2007 to 2018 in Atenas. Maria and her husband live in La Fortuna and run a cattle ranch and dairy farm. They are involved in ecotourism, health and wellness projects, and Spanish teaching. The couple manages the Bogarin Trail, which grew out of land set aside on the ranch 20 years ago and now teems with endemic flora and fauna.

      I had the best time on this trip! Our days were packed with the best excursions and it was all thoroughly planned out. Communication before the trip was great everything was very well organized and safe. Would recommend this program 100000/10!
