I love Costa Rica, and I learned much more than I thought I would. There were many more aspects to learn about than just coffee and sustainability. I developed and grew personally.

My favorite part of the trip was visiting the farmers who are so passionate about what they do and so willing to share their lives with you. The people of Costa Rica are some of the nicest people I have ever met, and that made the trip all the more worth it!
