Name Costa Rica Ranforest
Our trip to Costa Rica will be all about exploring jungles and sustainability. This includes yoga, swimming in natural pools, hiking through rainforest, enjoying organic foods, zip lining, and a cultural soccer game.
Rancho Margot, the eco-lodge where we stay, is one of the world’s leaders in sustainability, yoga is offered twice a day, all the food is organic, and there are monkeys, jaguars, and pumas at the ranch.
You can go to the beach a lot of places, but very few people our age have been to the rainforest.
-You fly into San Jose, Costa Rica, where we meet you at the airport and bring you way up into the mountains to our homebase Rancho Margot.
-Rancho Margot was featured on CNN with Dr. Sanjay Gupta
and is one of the world leaders in sustainability, and a really peaceful place set between cloud and rainforests.
-All the food is organic, and a lot of it is grown on the ranch… they even do things like use their compost to heat the stoves.
-Yoga is offered twice a day, you can relax in the natural pools, go check out the snake zoo or the butterfly conservatory.
-And during the day everyone has the option to go on day trips with our Costa Rican guides to Arenal National Park to see the volcanoes, kayaking on Lake Arenal, we’re 10 minutes from the best zip-lining in Costa Rica, we do a service learning project with a local school to teach English and play soccer to help them establish a healthy relationship with foreigners as part of their curriculum.
-Everyone on the trip ends up getting really close, people end up dating, working on projects together, and being friends for the rest of their life. Our community shares a ton of experiences, so it brings people together.
Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for young people to get amazing experiences abroad.
All our trips are Wednesday through Sunday, so that young people only have to take three days off from work or school…. we also offer all sorts of payment options, because we know as young people these two things are the two biggest challenges as a traveler.
We pick out the BEST possible itineraries in a country so you go home with an amazing experience, and all you have to do is show up.
Our trips are all designed to be mindful experiences, instead of just a crazy Cancun style party…. But we do have a lot of fun!.
Questions are always welcomed :)
Let's travel together this winter!
