International Agricultural Field Experience
December 13-22, 2016

Take an “eduvacation” full of discovery learning.  
Travel the varied countryside of Costa Rica, studying at various sites of interest related to agriculture, social culture, and recreation.
Costa Rica's geographic diversity is unparalleled: mountains, river valleys, coastal plains, and rich volcanic soils. The Costa Rican people have a saying, “pura vida,” which means pure life. The country is beautiful and the people warm and friendly!  With mountains, the Pacific, and the Caribbean all very close, there are plenty of activities to enjoy: going to the beach, canopy, horseback riding, and white water rafting.
We fly into San José, the capital city, and then begin traveling.
