Excursions and Trips

Costa Rica is world-renowned for the beauty and diversity of its ecology, and has an extensive national park system. You can explore a rain forest with its spectacular birds, wild orchids, and fascinating wildlife.

You can observe troops of Howler monkeys, Spider monkeys, and White Face monkeys in the wild. You can watch the largest turtles in the world, the endangered Leatherback Sea Turtles, as they nest on Costa Rican beaches. Costa Rica also has active volcanos, beautiful coral reefs, fantastic windsurfing, and white water rafting over some of the most exciting rapids in the world. If you prefer more civilized activities, we can arrange for you to play golf or tennis at one of the best clubs in Costa Rica. These are just a few of the many memorable experiences you can have while you study Spanish at IPED.

You can strike out on your own or with other students or we can connect you with a tour guide that can offer almost any destination in Costa Rica at reasonable prices. However you do it, we encourage you to discover the beauty of our country and our people as you live and learn Spanish with us.
