Active Discovery

Combine community service with tropical exploration & adventure!

This program is the perfect combination of community service and an eco adventure. Start your journey in the picturesque town of Atenas, the birthplace of Costa Rican tradition and culture. Mornings are dedicated to your service project where helping the local community serves also as an introduction to the country. Then comes the time to explore the natural side of Costa Rica from the Arenal Volcano region, with its hot springs and waterfalls, down to Manuel Antonio Beach on the exotic Pacific coast. Costa Rica is known for its respect of the environment, endemic wildlife, and sustainable tourism practices. Experience and learn about this first-hand through our eco adventure component.
