Costa Rica offers students a challenging academic experience with travel through breathtaking scenery, immense biodiversity, culturally immersive homestays, and a variety of unique excursions. The program begins at Arenal Volcano and ends in the capital of San José. In between, students live with local families in the small towns of La Paz de San Ramón and San Marcos de Tarrazú and visit Corcovado National Park along the country’s Pacific coast.
