Inherently gorgeous and chock-full of educational opportunities, Costa Rica is one of the smartest choices your group can make for an exciting learning adventure or senior trip.
Rugged and rainforest-filled, the scenery and wildlife encounter possibilities here are worth the trip alone. The landscape is dotted with volcanoes, jungles, and beaches, and the animals within are exotic and probably new to most visitors to the area.
Cities such as the capital, San Jose, provide your group with incredible insight into local culture and history, immersing guests in their way of life via food, local interaction, and historic settlements. This is also true in Cartago, the country's former capital, where you will see examples of a culture past up close and personal, with historic ruins and ancient churches scattered all throughout.
There are eco-adventures abound in Costa Rica, with options ranging from exploring local national parks through zip lining and hiking to climbing mountainsides and experiencing Costa Rican wildlife firsthand. Visit active volcanos, take a dip in a local thermal spa, or even spend your day beachcombing a forgotten coastline.
