BBYO Passport: Costa Rica Adventure

Costa Rica


Spend two weeks exploring and challenging yourself in Costa Rica. A stunningly beautiful country that is rich in bio-diversity and with endless opportunities for outdoor adventure.

Learn about Costa Rica's unique approach to ecological sustainability, give back on community service projects, and spend a Shabbat with the Jewish community of San Jose. Looking for adventure? Hike on an active volcano, zip-line over a rainforest, snorkel on a tropical beach, raft down a raging river, swim under a waterfall, relax in thermal hot springs, and go on a night safari. Costa Rica is a stunningly beautiful country that is lush with colorful plants, rare animals, and endless opportunities for outdoors exploration.

Living in harmony with nature. Although Costa Rica is a very small country, it contains more biodiversity than America or Europe! On Eco-Costa Rica, we will learn about Costa Rica's unique approach to sustainable living. Spend the weekend on a "Costa Rican-style kibbutz", explore an organic coffee plantation, and eat deliciously fresh food at every stop along the way.

Building cross-cultural connections. Costa Rica is a very friendly country. So friendly, it is one of the only countries in the world with no army at all. Meet fellow teens at a local school, celebrate Shabbat with the Jewish community of San Jose, and leave your mark through a series of service projects.

As an experience for Jewish teens, Eco-Costa Rica is also an opportunity to explore your Jewish identity through the lens of life in Costa Rica. Delve into the meaning of being eco-kosher, fulfill the Jewish value of Tikun Olam (fixing the planet), and celebrate two very memorable Shabbatot - including one with the Jewish community of San Jose..
