Once again on Saturday, the students will travel by boat and bus, this time to a different country - Costa Rica. In Turrialba, Costa Rica, the students will enjoy the non-touristy feel of this small town and be able to use all the Spanish that they have learned so far with the local "Ticos", a nickname for Costa Ricans. You will enjoy daily life activities like shopping at the fruit and vegetable market or sitting in the park to chat with the locals. The last day of classes are on Friday, and at a final Happy Hour and barbecue, the students will receive their certificates and get ready for the last spectacular excursion: a rafting trip on the Pacuare river. This excursion provides a thrilling ride down the river filled with stunning natural beauty and exciting rapids. The campsite, located in the heart of the jungle, provides an opportunity to learn about the rainforest and will give you some time to relax in a hammock, check out the toucans and sloths, and look back on all the unique and wonderful experiences of the past four weeks!
On your final day you will arrive back quite late so it’s best to book an additional night of accommodation in Turrialba and continue your onwards travel the following day.
