Costa Rica Group & Student Travel Specialists
Costa Rica Explorations is a unique student-travel organization that specializes in authentic, cross-cultural, Spanish immersion, and service-learning programs to Costa Rica. All of our itineraries are private to the school or community group traveling with us. Our programs are best suited for high school and middle school students and educators that are looking to create a hands-on, out-of-the-classroom, experiential learning experience through travel and cultural immersion. We also offer service and language programs for adult groups.
To begin the process, we need an adult group contact that will take responsibility to collaborate directly with us to promote the trip, organize the participants and accompany the group to Costa Rica. With eight fully-paying participants, this person’s program tuition is free of charge. If you are a teacher, student, scout leader, coach, rotary club member or a parent who would like to travel abroad to Costa Rica and learn to speak Spanish while volunteering to help the citizens of Costa Rica in an authentic community service project, our travel programs are for you!
All of our student travel programs are merely guidelines to work from as we customize the experience for you and your participants. Our educational team has countless ways to implement a variety of different curriculum; from environmental sciences, biology and outdoor education to history, religion, and Spanish, there is a lot of learning-by doing that happens during these experiences. We also can coordinate exchange programs between scouts as well as soccer teams that want to share with like-minded students in Costa Rica. Learn more.

All group trips include two, bilingual, professional guides that have been trained and have experience in leading educational tours. The length, budget and activities within each of the programs can all be customized to fit the needs of your school or group. While planning a student travel program to Costa Rica, one is faced with countless choices and decisions to make. Making these decisions can be overwhelming and we are here to inform, educate, and ensure that your experience is safe, educational and enlightening.
