Immerse yourself in the neo-tropical rainforest of Costa Rica, one of the most biologically diverse places on the planet! Go beyond the typical tourist destinations to explore the real Costa Rica. In this 10-day field study in Trimester 2, we will see an amazing variety of rainforest plants and animals and meet many Costa Ricans, who will share their lives with us. We will learn about the ways in which Costa Rica has become one of the most “green” and “happiest” countries in the world. We will participate in some adventure learning by hiking in the rainforest, zip-lining through the forest canopy and kayaking through mangroves. Students will be required to pay all travel expenses.
