The trip has four major components: Permaculture, Spanish instruction, Eco-Adventure, and Community Service. UTSI has teamed up with excellent tour providers so that you can enjoy ziplines through the rainforest canopy, rappel down waterfalls, snorkel in the Marino Ballena National Park, and hike to secluded rainforests and pristine waterfalls. Daniela Mora will provide a solid introduction to Spanish, giving you a basic understanding and increased confidence to explore Costa Rica and beyond. On the farm, you will learn about tropical Permaculture, taste tropical fruits, plant fruit trees, and much more. UTSI has also teamed up with Forjando Alas, a community development project focused on providing local school children with after-school educational activities and will be assisting them in constructing a garden, teaching science and English, and more. Please consider joining this once in a lifetime adventure. Anyone 18 and up is welcome to join or younger if accompanied by a parent or guardian.
