High School Trips
Through our school programs, Go Tico! takes high school groups on immersion trips to various locations in Costa Rica. Providing a comfortable balance of community integration in a rural town and "tourist" time, our student programs:
Allow for ample practice of Spanish skills
Incorporate volunteerism as a way to both make friendships and give back to the host community
Expose students to a different culture, foods and way of life
Educate students about local industries
Explore regional natural areas to appreciate the flora and fauna of Costa Rica
Are coordinated and hosted start to finish by Go Tico! staff
Build life-long friendships and life-changing experiences
What Go Tico! Offers
We coordinate your trip, start to finish. All itinerary details, travel booking, transportation, and pre-departure meetings are coordinated and run by our staff. Go Tico! directors Sara & Johel, the primary chaperones, have both lived in Costa Rica and are well versed in all aspects of coordinating safe group travel. Through collaboration with several small Costa Rican communities with which they have deep, close ties, Sara and/or Johel arrange and attend all components of travel to truly engage and immerse students in less-traveled areas of this beautiful country.
Go Tico! High School trips offer students the opportunity to spend 7 days living and engaging with students through intercultural exchange and educational enrichment projects in the 300-person community of La Flor or nearby Rio Cuarto. Go Tico! students live with host families in the community and engage extensively with the local students and community members both in and outside the classroom. Mornings will involve doing art and educational projects with elementary school children or intercultural workshops with high school students before heading out in the afternoon to explore regional gems: biological reserves, pineapple plantations, waterfalls, or wildlife refuges.
