AIDE Abroad’s international internships in Costa Rica offer participants the opportunity to gain experience and develop employability skills in a global context. Furthermore, participants may be eligible to receive academic credit for their international internship with AIDE Abroad. AIDE Abroad believes that this access to experiential learning develops intercultural competence, as well as tolerance and understanding of circumstances and societies that are different from our own. Our aim is to build a worldwide community of global citizens who will be part of an ongoing intercultural conversation. Welcome aboard, and we hope that you enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Setting Description:
We offer placements throughout the country, where participants will have the opportunity to both explore nature and live with a Costa Rican host family. Sharing your daily life with them will provide you with cultural experience and insight that you could never have as a tourist. Soon you will become immersed in “Tico” culture and live “pura vida”, the relaxing way of life that has made Costa Rica famous. The goal is for interns to better understand their industry, distinguish their resume with international work experience, and gain confidence in their field of expertise.
