#GoodNewsTues - Program Updates March 29

This week we have two new sessions for programs in Costa Rica, along with several program upgrades for trips in other countries. These upgrades include new itineraries and added seats for a session that had sold out. Here are the details:

New Sessions in Costa Rica

Pura Vida Service

We’ve added one more session for this popular program that is perfect for newer travelers. This will be the last one we can add for the summer of 2022. During the trip, students enjoy a perfect combination of service and adventure in the scenic Arenal Volcano region of Costa Rica.  The new dates are:

July 26 – August 3

Heart of the Jungle

One more session has been added for this program that takes students to the Osa Peninsula in southern Costa Rica. This region contains 5% of the world’s biodiversity, There students enjoy both adventure activities and meaningful service projects. The new dates are:

July 12 – July 27

Upgraded Programs:


Moroccan Wanderer (High School and College)

The itinerary for this program has been updated so that it starts and ends in Marrakech. This removes some long drives, which gives students more time for cultural activities and country exploration.


Southeast Asian Adventurer

Forest restoration work has been added to this program that is packed with adventure and cultural activities. Students will be taught about conservation by ecologists from the University of Chiang Mai. More details about this newly updated program can be seen here in our blog article.

Dominican Republic

Marine Life and Coastal Restoration

New housing arrangements have made it possible to increase the capacity for this program. That means the July 12 session that was sold out now has several spaces available for student interested in environmental conservation and marine biology.
