Hear from Past Travelers

I wish I could give Discover Corps 10 stars!! Our trip to Costa Rica was awesome! There was not a single glitch along the way, the registration was easy and I appreciated all the one-on-one guidance I received about planning the trip. We were picked up at the airport in Costa Rica by our guide and the rest of the week was filled with wonderful exploration, learning, great food, great accommodations, a perfect schedule of activities and just the right amount of downtime; and the wonderful company of the other travelers, our guide and our very competent driver. We loved it. Wish we were still there in beautiful Costa Rica!
