COSTA RICA | Sun, 7 Jan 2018 | By rodeime | Views [419]

COSTA RICA | Sun, 22 Feb 2015 | By jgreghenry | Views [621] | Video

Simple food honestly prepared. Whole fried fish with plantains, served outside on the weathered boards of a rustic table, accompanied by beer and hot sauce. Ocean breezes and shanty shade to protect us from the heat and sun. The sound of something Latin ... Read more >

COSTA RICA | Sun, 22 Feb 2015 | By jgreghenry | Views [1010]

It’s a bit late to get started, I’m thinking to myself. So I impatiently shuffle in my Tevas at the entrance to Manuel Antonio National Park on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica. I’m with a fairly large group that includes a boisterous, ... Read more >

COSTA RICA | Wed, 19 Nov 2014 | By crazysexyfuntraveler | Photo Gallery | Scholarship Entry

Peru has always been one of my biggest dreams. Just a week before I was supposed to visit it, I got really sick and had to cancel my trip. I remember having Peru posters on my wall when everyone else had male music bands on. I am obsessed with nature, ... Read more >

Costa Rica, pura vida!

COSTA RICA | Thu, 29 May 2014 | By adreamtogo | Views [390]

To Maria with genuine love,  Costa Rica, followed a time where we found ourselves in a “in-between land”, unable to feel free so the only way out that we found was to free our minds. We didn’t chose that way, we didn’t ... Read more >

NICARAGUA | Fri, 4 Apr 2014 | By sarthak | Views [591] | Video

Life takes us to places we had never been to before, places we had never known of. It shows us things we had never seen; things that we did not even know existed. We will come to rejoice things we had never rejoiced before; the little things and the ... Read more >

PANAMA | Sun, 21 Jul 2013 | By coggos | Views [2702]

Costa Rica and Panamania 20th June 2013   Once again we are surprised how much crossing a border -just 15kms in a little boat but a world away in development- can feel so different. We leave Nicaragua and make our way into Costa Rica.... Read more >

Arenal La Fortuna

COSTA RICA | Tue, 25 Jun 2013 | By kendal00 | Views [728]

The shuttle bus picked me up at 8:15. Up to this point I have only been on the local busses ranging from $3 to $12. This was a big splurge for me at $47.  The shuttle only had 5 of us and it had wifi so it turned out not to be such a bad deal.... Read more >

COSTA RICA | Fri, 14 Jun 2013 | By kendal00 | Views [646]

Monday started with the normal breakfast and dishes routine; however, Donald had left for work before I made it downstairs at 6:50 so I wasn't sure what my job for the day was. As I started to head back up to my room Xinia gave me my task. I was ... Read more >
