Class was a good amount of work and was kind of difficult. However, not impossible and because it was a science and a lab that was understandable.

Worth every penny!! Most of these memories are priceless and you get a lot for what you pay for!

It was so much fun!

The motto/lifetyle of Pura Vida. The people in Costa Rica exemplify such a beautiful, simple, and loving way to live that I will always carry with me. Everyone was so nice, humble, and hospitable. They loved the environment and their community. Also the students on my trip was such a good group of adventurous and open-minded people, due to the nature of the Outdoor Adventure aspect of the program.
