Program Overview

Program Description:

The New World tropics are a monument to biodiversity.  A small patch of forest in Costa Rica may contain more kinds of trees, birds and insects than all of North America.  Our destination, Ostional, is the scene of a regular wildlife spectacle - the mass nesting when hundreds of olive ridley (Lepidochelys olivacea) sea turtles come ashore to lay eggs.  You will experience wildlife and ecosystems that only a lucky few get to see.  In addition, you will live in homes of Costa Rican families and experience their culture and hospitality.
