Learn about the responsible interactions between human and natural communities, ensuring a long-term and sustainable future. We’ll travel to the capital city of San Jose, and along the western/Pacific coastline, visiting a volcano, hydroelectric dam, eco-hotels, beaches, jungles, and spice and cocoa plantations, in an immersive educational opportunity that goes beyond the typical tourist experience.
