Renowned for its world-class abundance of wildlife and for being the “happiest country on earth”, Costa Rica is unrivaled in its natural beauty. From the lush rainforests teeming with monkeys, sloths and toucans to its splendid palm-fringed beaches, there are many sides of Costa Rica to explore.
While Costa Rica has an excellent reputation as a leader in sustainability, environmental pressures are rising due to a growing population and increased deforestation. To achieve our purpose and combat these threats, plant trees with a rural community in the highlands, and learn about their traditional way of life. Volunteer at a wildlife rescue center preparing food for sloths, monkeys, and marmosets.
