USAO's Costa Rica Trip Deadline Set for Jan. 28
Individuals wanting to experience rainforests, volcanoes, mountain ranges and all the other sites of Costa Rica during USAO's trip to the country in May need to finalize their plans soon. The deadline for enrollment is Jan. 28.
The trip is scheduled May 18-26 and will be of particular interest to individuals interested in culture, diverse ecosystems and exotic plant and animal life, said Dr. Stephen Weber, professor of music at USAO and trip leader. The trip is open to members of the community as well as USAO students.
Students and individuals under 23 should plan to pay around $1,800 for the trip. For people over 23, the cost is around $2,100. Trip costs include airfare, all meals, hotels, ground transportation and entrance to all sites on the tour.
"The trip includes visits to National Parks, rainforests, volcanoes, mountain ranges, canopy tours, wildlife refuges and Pacific coast beaches," Weber said. "In addition to all the fascinating sights on the tour, participants will get to plant a tree in the Costa Rican rainforest, experience Costa Rican folk music and art and even interact with children at a Costa Rican school."
The tour is organized and operated by Education First Company, which provides an educational approach to travel abroad experiences. "These trips, sponsored by USAO, provide our students with excellent opportunities to experience other cultures, to further their knowledge of other parts of the world, and to interact with our alums and members of the community that travel with us," Weber said.
