Settling into Village Life
June 30, 2016
Although we had a ton of fun during our first few days in Costa Rica, we’re excited to settle into Pozo Azul, the village we’ll call home for the next week. There was a grand welcoming, known as Bienvenidos, where the village welcomed everyone with food, dancing, and a piñata!
First Days in Playa Hermosa
July 18, 2016
Our two days in Playa Hermosa have been filled with amazing activities which truly made us appreciate the immense beauty of Costa Rican wildlife and its diverse natural treasures. From surfing to snorkeling, to enjoying picnics and scavenger hunts, it has really been a unique start to the trip.
Our Special Week Helping the Community of Quebrada Grande
August 12, 2014
We can’t believe a week has already passed in the village of Quebrada Grande! We’ve been busy learning about life here in northern Costa Rica, while helping the town with some important development projects. From eating cajeta (a Costa Rican carrot cake), to hiking to the Catarata los Chorros waterfall, to dancing with local children at the Bienvenida party, we’ve also been having lots of fun.
