During the summer holidays, five of our students ventured to Costa Rica and Nicaragua for a challenging three week expedition of a life time. There first stop was to complete a five day community project in the Osa Pennisula, with the aim of conservation, helping with the reforestation of native species and to reclaim land previously used for farming.
From here they spent three days journeying north to Nicaragua, with a crater walk in the cloud forests as their first proper challenge. A sloth and the national tree frog greeted our students as they set off upon their adventure in the jungle.
From here our journey took us to the Northern Volcanoes and our final major challenge, a five day volcano trek. The students were nervous about how hard it would but after the first tough day they were sat at an open crater with plenty of energy left. After this the volcanoes were a breeze. During the rest of the trek our students got to take in the stunning views, dance into the night with local children and volcano board down the ashen slopes of the crater
From there they went back to Granada for some well deserved rest and relaxation. A chocolate making lesson and to enjoy the local cuisine. For their final experience our students tried stand up paddle boarding on Lake Nicaragua before toasting their journey with a drink from coconuts.
