Costa Rica

There's a lot to love about this tropical paradise

Our 2018-19 itinerary reads like a sightseer’s bucket list, with terms planned in cosmopolitan cities like Sydney and Shanghai, and a visit to the Unesco-certified medina in Marrakech, Morocco, lined up. Before surrounding ourselves with millions of people, however, we’ll surround ourselves with millions of trees; the year kicks off in Costa Rica, a country renowned for its commitment to peace (it possesses no standing army), sustainable energy initiatives (it’s been running entirely on renewable energy since 2016), and incredible opportunities for collaborative science projects. It’s also a chance to interact with some of the friendliest ticos and ticas on the planet, all while enjoying some of the cleanest air in Latin America.

When they aren’t ziplining through Monteverde’s cloudforest or whitewater rafting down the Pacuare River, our students might be hard at work on one of the following projects: observing primate social behavior at the El Zota Biological Field Station; collecting marine data by snorkeling in Drake Bay; engaging in cultural discussions with the indigenous people of La Amistad National Park; or preparing a business plan for a new coffee venture in San José’s tourist district.
