Day 3

It has been a tremendous day here in Palo Seco. After so much planning and discussion about our service work, the students finally got to dive in!

This morning, the class had a lecture with Jorge, our local guide and mangrove expert. We learned the impact that the mangrove trees have on the shore here in Costa Rica and why our work to replant them is so important.

Day 2

Hola! We’ve had quite a busy day here in Costa Rica. First, the students all reported to breakfast at 6:30 a.m., quickly packed their bags, and headed off to our next part of the trip.

Once on the bus, we enjoyed the ride out of San Jose on the Pan-American highway – the longest highway in the world! Before arriving at our destination, we made a very nice stop at a local fruit stand. Students quickly fell in love with samples of passion fruit, mango, star apple, and many things we had never seen before.
