School Trips to Costa Rica

A school trip to Costa Rica offers your students the opportunity to explore one of the most bio-diverse countries on the planet. Boasting the perfect mix of forests, volcanoes, beaches and nature reserves, Costa Rica offers a wealth of opportunities to help with the study of conservation and the practice of scientific research that would be hard to find anywhere else!

On an educational tour to Costa Rica, you can hike up a volcano, spend time relaxing in the hot springs or hop aboard a boat and sail the river on the lookout for wildlife.

As you can see, Costa Rica is the perfect destination for both geography and biology students. Plus, as a real pioneer of ecotourism, this is the ideal destination for encouraging your students to become more environmentally conscious.

Discover more about school trips to costa rica

The Central American country of Costa Rica is perhaps one of the best destinations in the world for a geography school trip, or a school trip designed to teach students about biodiversity and the importance of sustainable tourism.

In fact, to date, Costa Rica is the only country in the world to meet all five of the criteria set by the United Nations Development Programme to measure environmental sustainability! It is a country that takes its biodiversity very seriously and so it should – despite making up just 0.03% of the world’s landmass, Costa Rica makes up 5% of the world’s biodiversity.

A school trip to Costa Rica is a great option for educating the travellers of the future to travel more responsibly, as the country has led the way in terms of ecotourism since the early 1990s.
