Outward Bound Costa Rica

https://outwardboundcostarica.org/

Outward Bound Costa Rica is a program provider offering 6 abroad programs. Programs offered include Study Abroad, Volunteer, Intensive Language, Gap Year, High School, and Research abroad programs in 3 countries such as Costa Rica, Nicaragua, and Panama.

Outward Bound Costa Rica inspires a lifetime of leadership, growth, and a commitment to serve through adventure-based learning. Our mission is to facilitate personal growth and success in character development, leadership, service and academic achievement.

Our students get the chance to hike in the rain and cloud forests while living with local host families, learning Costa Rican culture, and working side by side with the local community as they provide much needed assistance. Service projects range in length and focus on people, construction, marine biology and ecological issues. Students surf in our world-renowned warm water breaks, whitewater raft and kayak on our Class III and IV rivers and experience the beauty of the Panama coral reef as they earn their Scuba Certification in Bocas del Toro.
