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—actively involves students 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.

        My kids had the best time. They loved the whitewater rafting, ziplining, making food and dancing. They haven't stopped talking about the trip and it has been over a week since they returned. They wanted to stay another week!
