Top of page Costa Rica Links    
Because Costa Rica is an extremely popular tourist destination (tourism is the second-largest income earner for the country), there is a bewildering amount of travel and other information available. We have complied a representative sample here which provides participants with the tools to begin (or continue) learning about the country. Local resources and travel tips related to sustainability are also available on the Sustainable Living page.

Top of page Nicaragua Links    
To the north of Costa Rica is Nicaragua, a country we typically visit during field study during semester programs. Although the country is very poor economically, it is extremely rich in culture. Now enjoying over 20 years of peace since the revolution, this country is quickly becoming a tourist destination. It also abounds with unique opportunities to explore the history of the region and challenges of development. To learn more about Nicaragua, explore the following links:

Top of page Panama Links    
Panama lies just to the south of Costa Rica. Perhaps best known for the Panama Canal, this country has many other treasures to explore. The closest and thus most commonly visited region for people originating travel from Costa Rica is Bocas del Toro. This island archipelago, centered around Isla Colón (the most important island), abounds with recreational and tourist activities while still maintaining the charm of its Afro-Caribbean culture. The location is a common destination for participants on semester programs. Browse the following links to learn more about the country.
