If you're bored by travel abroad in the fashion of Paris Hilton (posh hotels and tourist traps), this inclusive trip to Costa Rica is right up your rugged Bear Grylls alley. Spend five days and four nights nestled into a rainforest in the village of Piedras Blancas, where accommodations are in the homes of locals - homestay vets who have housed travelers for at least ten years. Experience Costa Rica as they do: from the heart of country.
Away from everything you know, you'll have the chance to see the beauty and thrills Costa Rica has to offer: Rappel down a waterfall, explore a 900 foot cave, make sugar from sugar cane, fish in the dazzling Rio Savegre, and learn how to prepare traditional food. Each day treats you to a fresh and exciting adventure in this enchanting area.
Food is included with your lodging. You'll be staying with families, so expect home-cooked, authentic Costa Rica meals, and know your journey to slumber includes authentic Costa Rican bedding: either a very basic bed or a sleeping mat. Personal space may be sparse but will be respected - just remember, this isn't how the rich and famous see another country. This is how you, and those who want to know what it's really like to live somewhere else, see the world.
