FUTURE-FOCUSED STUDY ABROAD
Costa Rica

With 25 percent of its land protected parkland, Costa Rica is known for its diverse scenery, political stability, and friendly people. Our programs are based in Heredia, a bustling suburb of San José filled with small neighborhoods, restaurants, plazas and universities. The excellent academic opportunities are close to ecologically diverse sites and beaches, charming Costa Rican villages, and more than 100 volcanic formations. Costa Rica is one of the most stable nations in Latin America and is even known as the “Switzerland of Latin America” since dismantling its army in 1948.
