“Pura Vida” is more than just a saying in Costa Rica: it’s the simple and pure way of life. Travel to the tropical paradise of Costa Rica and combine Spanish language education, adventurous exploration, cultural immersion, and community service to make an unforgettable summer. Earn 30 hours of community service, raft a jungle river, soar through the forest on an aerial zip-line, learn to surf, brush up on your Spanish, and relax on pristine, white sand beaches. This two week adventure will be filled with high adventure, colorful surroundings, and endless new experiences!

I met some amazing people that I will never forget and I learned a lot about myself. I grew in my confidence and especially loved learning how to surf!
