Costa Rica Toucan

Costa Rica Science Discovery

In a country that’s home to vibrant rainforests, active volcanoes, unique wildlife, and amazing surf, there are endless opportunities to experience learning in a fun and meaningful way in Costa Rica. Ziplining high above the ground and through the trees, taking a mud bath in volcanic clay, snorkeling in a pristine national park, white water rafting, and engaging with the local community are just a few highlights of the adventures you can experience with us in this tropical paradise on one of our Costa Rica Science Discovery programs.

L.E.A.P to learn Our learning difference

Our trademarked approach to learning - LEAP - gets students actively involved in what they're seeing and doing.  This active engagement between students, the places they visit, and their Course Leaders allows students (and teachers) to absorb more and build their knowledge and social skills. Learn about LEAP

We’re an actual school We’re a school, too

WorldStrides is accredited by educational bodies across the country, and we have a dedicated Curriculum and Academics Department - this means we're an actual school (we just don't have walls!). As a school, we can offer students high school and college credit, and teachers free professional development. See accreditation details

Welcome to real-world learning Travel brings the classroom to life

Whether reliving the past or discovering the future, true learning can't be done from a distance. It requires hands-on exploration and travel delivers it!  When students get up close with the subjects they've only read about in books, learning moments are brought to life in a way in a way not possible in the classroom.

Comments about WorldStrides Costa Rica Science Discovery:

This trip was worth every penny we spent and every hour we spent fundraising! Our guide, Lalo was wonderful! I think he made the trip the most fun! He was so knowledgeable about everything we did. There was not a question that he didn't know the answer to or find out the answer. He made the kids feel so comfortable. He became our friend.

Comments about WorldStrides Costa Rica Science Discovery:

My daighter loves to be home. Does not like to travel, does not like to put herself in any situation that involves her making an effort to talk to people she don't know. She is shy, quite, and reserved. She shocked me when she asked to go. She LOVED it. She said she would do it again. and she learned so much. Thank you World Strides.
