Pura Vida

The ubiquitous Costa Rican mantra "pura vida" suggests that, here, we live the "good life."

The Pura Vida study abroad experience happens during winter break in San Ramon and Palmares, Costa Rica. Students and faculty from a variety of disciplines take on a community project while exloring the corners and culture of this fascinating blue-collar regional center in Alejuela province.

We'll pursue our academic projects by day, share our learning at night, and together take in the cultural immersion that is uniquely Costa Rica: the rain forest, salsa dancing, coffee, and Manuel San Antonio Park on the Pacific coast.

Pura vida!
