I enjoyed that this program was very outdoor-based. There is no way to explore Costa Rica from inside a building, and this program embraced that.

I loved learning about the history, the struggles and the hope these people have. How this small part of the world works differently from what I knew, and learning how we can be different and yet complete together too.

The parts of the program that were most rewarding were getting to visit so many different cities in Costa Rica. Each one had its own climate and attractions that made them unique. We traveled from the bustling city of San Jose, to the cool forests of Monteverde, back up to the mild volcanic atmosphere of Arenal and finally all the way west to the hot and sunny beaches of Manuel Antonio. Each environment had such a unique layout and culture that it was always an adventure to wake up and explore. I learned so much about not only the people but about the wildlife and how precious it is.
