Touch of the Tropic is a Touch of Life

Touch of the Tropics is a Touch of Life                                      

 

          After a 5 hour flight from New Mexico to Costa Rica, my group and I landed in San Jose ready to embark on our quest of Touch of the Tropics, that EF tours has so kindly laid out for us. We retired to our hotel rooms at the hotel Ville Tournon. Out of my school group there were nine of us; five girls, three guys including me, and my teacher.

Costa Rica...Experience It.

Costa Rica, a touch of the tropics, some may say. I say it’s more of a dive, head first, into a region soaked in biodiversity and engulfed by environmental awareness, for Costa Rica is so much more than just a tourist beach get away. This last summer I went on a tour with the spanish club at my school. We went to Costa Rica with an educational tour company, Education First Tours. With this particular tour company I did more than see Costa Rica, I experienced it.

Costa Rican Summer

Thirty passports, thirty exhilarated students, one AeroMexico plane (of course including the complimentary six hour layover in Mexico City), a yearlong awaited trip, and one month of total Costa Rican immersion. So commenced the most sensational summer spectacle since Woodstock. Never had I imagined that a year of hard work and savings would land me on the Trip-of-a-Lifetime with my three best friends and 26 best-friends-to-be in Costa Rica.

My Costa Rica Experience

 Hiking in Vibrams and a bathing suit felt equivalent to hiking barefoot in a girdle. Vibrams are a pair of 5-fingered shoes designed with 5 individual slots to eat of your toes.  The other students were equipped with expensive hiking boots while I heavily relied on one pair of all-purpose trekking, swimming, and running shoes.

Costa Rica: Discovering Myself through Adventure

As my grandmother and I were heading to LAX, I could already feel my impatience building inside. I could not control how excited  I was for our adventure to Costa Rica. Soon, after taking our seats on the plane, I felt the majestic lift of the plane, which I sensed signaled the start of something much more than a vacation.

Buenas Tardes from Costa Rica

The first thing you notice as you arrive in Costa Rica is all the beautiful scenery. Traveling from San Jose to our host families we drove up and down mountains on winding roads, with lush, green rainforest surrounding us and steam slowly rising from the mountains.

Step Out of Your Comfort Zone and Into Amazing Memories

Every morning I opened up my bedroom door to the spectacular view of high tide crashing into el camino palmero, as I like to call it. As shown in the video, the view of the waves at the end of this walk was breathtaking.
