The heart of our program will take place in the beautiful colonial city of Heredia, the "City of Flowers".

Our excursions include hiking in the impressive Poás Volcano National Park, enjoying the tropical wildlife and beaches at the Manuel Antonio National Park, and white-water rafting and zip-lining through the rain-forest.
