Why Costa Rica?

Costa Rica is known for being a peaceful tropical paradise, but it’s also a leader in ecological conservation. Around 1/20th of the world's biodiversity comes from Costa Rica, making it the crown jewel of Central America. Come join us in Costa Rica to volunteer in its cloud forests and coasts and learn first hand about conservation. For those studying Spanish, our 3-week Spanish Service Adventure program allows you to improve your spoken Spanish while volunteering in a small community. Global Leadership Adventures offers secular teen mission trips in Costa Rica, and our Costa Rica programs are both close to home yet still worlds away.
