Educational tourism

Through its Educational Tourism Program, EARTH 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.

Welcome to PEP (Permanent Education Program)

In 1989, thanks to the generous support of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, EARTH created the Permanent Education Program (PEP). PEP serves as bridge between the University and its surrounding communities, supports the continual learning process of our alumni and coordinates seminars, conferences, educational tourism and the Institution’s community outreach program.
