I had such a wonderful time on this trip! Nosara is such a beautiful part of Costa Rica and a wonderful place to get to earn CEUs! The Spanish course was great and I learned a ton. But it also felt like we had plenty of time to enjoy Nosara and do the fun things too. Ari is an amazing leader and also just an amazing human, and she made this trip such a breeze because she is so organized and had all the details worked out before we got there. Accommodations, food, class, and activities were all spectacular! I would highly recommend this!

I had the best time! Everything was so enriching and in these Covid times seeing the world in a safe and deliberate manner was so enjoyable. I loved being here!

I had an incredible time! They supplied the tents and cots which were clean and cute. They fed us delicious healthy food. They led us through yoga sessions twice a day which I thoroughly enjoyed. We got to go kayaking one day too! There was a portable sauna truck for our use and to top it off access to the beautiful smith river was easy. Would highly recommend.

We had a wonderful time. Beautiful scenery, delicious food, incredible staff, and great company. The safari style tents were generous in size with comfortable cots and pads. There is nothing like falling asleep to the sound of a river with clear, star- lit skies above. We could stay on the group boat or try our skills on a kyack or paddle board. The staff was very kind and supportive. And the rapids were lots of fun with plenty of float time... I enjoyed the side hikes and the floats in the river. The lecture on global health was very good with information that could be applied in many settings. They welcomed family members to come along. It was a great vacation for our family.
