High School Educational Trips
Intercultural Exchange
July 16 - 26, 2022

Live the life of a Tico High Schooler: engage daily in intercultural exchange with local high school students before exploring the Rio Cuarto region most days. Students will spend 10 days living in both homestays & community cabins in the welcoming host community of La Flor.  In the morning, youth will collaborate on intercultural workshops with a local high school English class in a nearby community.  Each afternoon, students participate in regional tourism outings:
  • Biological Reserve
  • Butterfly Garden
  • Waterfall hike
  • National Park
  • Chocolate & Night Tours
  • Kayaking & Swimming
  • Thermal Waters
  • Boat Tour
In addition, students socialize with their Spanish-speaking host community and engage in activities with local residents in the evening. Providing a comfortable balance of community integration in a rural town and "tourist" time, our student programs:

  • Allow for ample practice of Spanish skills
  • Engage students with local community members 
  • Educate students to a different culture, foods and way of life
  • Explore regional natural areas to appreciate the flora and fauna of Costa Rica
  • Are coordinated and hosted start to finish by Go Tico! staff
