Each adult participant must submit a separate registration form, a liability waiver form, a Tardiness Agreement form (on the Before you Go Packet), and a $600 non-refundable deposit to reserve your spot. Remaining balance is due no later than June 12, 2023.
Also, make sure you have a valid passport for international travel.
If your application is approved, we will request your deposit and send you confirmation and the "Before You Go Packet." Once you have your confirmation, you should begin to make your travel arrangements. Travel/Health Insurance is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED and should be purchased soon after paying the deposit.
Also, please keep in mind that the best time to see animals and birds is in the morning. The culture of Costa Rica is early to bed and early to rise. If you are a night owl or looking for night life, this is not the trip for you. Also, you will stay with a host family in relatively humble conditions for 5 nights. Apart from that, we move to a different hotel room every night, so please be prepared to be portable and travel for a few hours each day in the passenger van.
We will do our best to make sure your primary goals are met. For example:
- I'm working on my Spanish!
- I'd love to see a sloth
- I'm looking for adventure
- I want to explore new things
- I want to meet new people
- The rain forest is on my bucket list
