In 2018, Costa Rican officials announced their intention to be Carbon Neutral by the country’s bicentennial in 2021. With more visitors than ever, it’s an impressive goal, but part of what makes Costa Rica so special is the fierce dedication to environmentalism and ecotourism.
On an ACIS student tour to Costa Rica, you will be immersed in that culture of sustainability. Whether you participate in a reforestation project or visit an animal sanctuary, climb through the cloud forest or walk the famed beaches, you will be surrounded by lessons of the natural world, shared through local residents and our top notch TMs. What you take away from your time there can be applied back home from the science classroom to public policy at large.
