So much. We are a country of overabundance and overconsumption. The people in Costa Rica have so much less than we do and yet they are so so so much richer and happier in their day to day lives. - Arkansas State University View Entire Review

This field station is located three hours from San Jose in Northern Costa Rica. Situated in the lowlands of the Caribbean, the field station is situated in one of the most biologically diverse regions in the world. With 1,000 acres of primary and secondary rainforests, the property lies along Rio La Suerte, a river that empties into the Caribbean at Tortuguero National Park. The end of the classes will include a visit to Tortuguero National Park in Limon Province. Accessible by boat, we will explore the different habitats, including lagoons, mangrove forests, and the local culture of the small town that is situated along the coast.
