Explore Costa Rica

Dive into a tropical playground brimming with brightly coloured birds and butterflies, croaking with electric green frogs and home to slow-moving sloths. Adventure here is all about getting around under your own steam. Hike on foot through lush national park rainforest, fly above the canopy on zip wires and paddle your kayak along tropical coastlines. Ride white water, snorkel with tropical fish and head out by boat to spot whales, dolphins and sea turtles.

Costa Rica is pure life. A school expedition here will let you pack in the adventure and give you time to slowly immerse yourself into the Costa Rican way of life. It’s an ecotourism dream, being one of the most ecologically diverse countries on the planet the country now runs almost entirely on renewable energy! Get involved in world class conservation efforts to see how it’s done and support Costa Rica’s aspiration to become a carbon neutral country.

Build your adventure

Offset your carbon footprint

Do your bit to help Costa Rica become the world’s first carbon neutral country in the world by 2021. Get involved in a tree planting day to nurture tropical forests and learn about your impact. A single tree planted in a tropical forest can offset as much as 2 tons of carbon in it’s lifetime.

Welcome to the jungle

Trek through some of the most pristine rainforest on the planet and fall asleep to the calls of monkeys, parrots and frogs. Head into the lush cloud forest of Monteverde or out to the tropical forests of the Osa Peninsula. Whether it is a gentle introduction or a fully immersive hike you’re looking for, Costa Rica has an adventure waiting for you.

Team up to save turtles

Sign up to a conservation program to learn about efforts to protect endangered turtles then get yourself out on a night patrol to see wildlife protection in action. Work with local volunteer organizations building turtle hatcheries, working in tree nurseries and eco-gardens to try and conserve Costa Rica’s precious environment.

Pump the adrenaline

Zip wire from tree to treetop in the Monteverde cloud forest for a hair raising experience and a different perspective of the canopy. If zip wiring is too tame, then dive into some wild white water rafting. Mix up adrenaline with cultural highlights, chocolate workshops and beach time.

"Summiting the mountain in Costa Rica was the most rewarding experience I’ve ever encountered. The hardship was completely surpassed by the satisfaction of reaching the top to look down at our accomplishment."
