Pacific Costa Rican Adventure

It was an adventure of a lifetime for a group of students who visited Costa Rica during Spring Break. They had eight action packed days with this trip that was oriented towards the exploration of nature and sports activities on the Pacific Coast.

The excursions included: hiking through the jungle to the top of a volcano and zip lining through the tree canopy, horseback riding in the forest, a visit to hot springs and taking mud baths, surfing classes in the Pacific Ocean, and many more thrilling adventures.

We stayed in two beautiful lodges with contrasting landscapes. The first one was situated in the mountains of Rincon de la Vieja National Park. It had a great view of Costa Rican landscape and a pottery making workshop. The second lodge was smaller and entirely reserved for our group. A well trained chef was cooking thematic meals for us and it was always a culinary treat to see what we would be surprised with at each meal.

One can truly say that this trip was an amazing adventure and the students will always have incredible memories. To see and do so much over eight days, in a unique and exotic location doesn’t happen often.
