Winter Session 2024
January 4-18 (15 days)
Meets ICC SO requirement
What is sustainable tourism? A way of traveling that protects and maintains balance with nature while contributing to the well-being, economy, and culture of local communities.
Travel sustainably to five different areas of Costa Rica to learn about the country's international award-winning sustainable practices. You'll stay in ecolodges run by local entrepreneurs and be accompanied by a Costa Rican guide trained in tropical wildlife biology who will interpret nature and the culture for us.
Highlights include kayaking in mangroves, visiting organic chocolate and coffee farms, talking with local experts, a student reforestation project, hiking in the rain and cloud forests, and a SkyWalk through the canopy.
