Jump into Costa Rica

Appreciate the warm energy of this tropical adventure. Costa Rica Survivor explores sizzling rainforest scattered with misty lakes, rushing waterfalls and discrete breakout routes to cool, secluded beaches. Learn how to navigate without a map, swing a machete, start a fire and fish and forage for food. Work with your hands carving tools, building a raft and constructing natural shelters for the night. Let our masters teach you the five elements of survival; fire, water, food, shelter and wellbeing in the rainforest.

Survival school

Switch off. Unplug. Get on the plane. Touch down in San Jose and explore the city before making your way to a secret location deep in the wilderness. Listen to the monkeys' call, smell the sweet scent of tropical flowers and sweat with the sticky heat. Enjoy the relative luxuries of survival school base camp, built by the experts, setting the benchmark high. Learn how to tie knots and lashings, build shelters, make fires, catch food and camp on a beach under the stars.

Brave the tropics

Master survival. Head into the jungle and put your new-found skills to the test. Build a new home. You are now a pack, you fend for each other. This is survival - it's not clean, it's not easy but it is real. Together you will thrive.

Active conservation

Restore nature. Trade your natural shelter for a hut nestled in the rainforest. Work closely with conservationists, biologists and rangers on initiatives including turtle conservation, reforestation and sustainable farming. Play a role in Costa Rica's goal to become the world's first carbon neutral country.

Feel the adrenaline and return to civilisation

Explore the Pacific Ocean, snorkel with dolphins or watch the whales. Head inland and up in the trees, zip wiring through Monteverde's cloud forest or raft the white-water rapids with your teammates. Say goodbye to the jungle and make your way back to San Jose. Kick back in the comforts of the city and reflect. Relive the memories you will keep for a lifetime. You did it. You did it together.
