See all that Costa RIca has to offer on this unforgettable gap year adventure. From the intense and deep Costa Rican rainforest to quaint yet colorful Caribbean beach towns, you will experience Central America in all its glory.

Your adventure starts in San Jose where you will meet your leaders and group and explore the vibrant nightlife of the city.

Turtle conservation is the next activity, where you will look for nesting turtles and abandoned eggs, as well as helping injured sea turtles. From there you will have the opportunity to try a canopy tour and zipline through the Monteverde Cloud forest.

Next it’s time to pack up your bags and head over to the town of Puerta Viejo on the Caribbean coast, the jumping off point for your rainforest adventure. With the support of Gapforce Expedition Leader and knowledgeable local guides you will trek deep into the national park to experience the wonders of the rainforest. Sleep under the rainforest canopy and marvel at the incredible wildlife with which you share this magical environment.

After emerging from the rainforest as a seasoned trekker, you will spend part of your final week assisting at one of Gapforce’s partner projects
