Costa Rica is a land of contrasts: banana plantations, flaming volcanoes, misty black sand beaches, and a thriving modern capitalist economy. A remarkably stable country, both politically and economically, Costa Rica offers an opportunity for students to become immersed in a Central American culture where democracy, economic development, and concern for the environment are a permanent part of the landscape. Students stay in the capital city of San José and have ample opportunity to visit the country’s many attractions.

Past Costa Rica students have:

•Evaluated the phase-outs of HCFC's in refrigerants to guide regulatory measures and recycling to reduce global warming

•Analyzed supply chain, marketing and retail venues of responsible fishing products with Marviva
