Through its Educational Tourism Program, EARTH-La Flor offers meaningful educational experiences, which integrate ecological, agricultural, scientific, social, entrepreneurial and cultural components.

Through informal educational programs, we offer open spaces and hands-on activities that enable you to learn more about new cultures, languages, environmental conservation and sustainability.

We tailor programs to serve each visiting group’s unique needs. We specialize in helping:

  • Programs for both Costa Rican and international high school students: We develop outside-the-classroom study programs, including: English or Spanish language programs, homestays with host families in rural communities, adventure sports, and explorations of flora and fauna in protected areas.
  • Programs for both Costa Rican and international university students: Share educational experiences with EARTH students and join in their Work Experience course and community service. We offer exchange opportunities with professors, students and University partners.
  • Business retreats: We plan your business meetings while you enjoy this excellent setting in which to build relationships and foster team-building. At the same time, enhance your team’s productivity and help your employees develop skills.
