Program Summary:Explore the challenges facing two of Costa Rica’s eight remaining indigenous groups. Through interviews with community members, compare the experiences of the Bribri and Maleku people and their fight to survive in a world that is quickly leaving similar cultures behind. Take part in a community service project and observe the indigenous way of life including traditional methods of farming, food preparation, and weaving. Hike to the mystical blue waters of Celeste River Waterfall, raft the Pacuare River, and spend time at a Caribbean beach to round out your time in Costa Rica. Demonstrate your learning in a presentation at the end of the program.
