Two Worlds United Programs in Costa Rica for High School students

At first sight, Costa Rica seems almost too good to be true. The attractions of this tiny nation are many, and the quality of life among the highest of Western Hemisphere standards.

Costa Rica has been blessed with remarkable equilibrium: few extremes of wealth and poverty, no standing army, and a proud history as one of the region's most stable democracies. Ticos, as the warmhearted Costa Ricans are known, pride themselves on having more teachers than policemen, a higher male life expectancy than in the United States, and a strong commitment to peace and prosperity.

Costa Rica seems to be bursting onto the international student education scene. The Pacific Northwest coast offers miles of white beaches, and winterless climate. The country is a top choice for "green" travel, with 12 distinct ecological zones that are home to an astonishing array of flora and fauna, such as the coatimundi, jaguars, sea turtles, arrow frogs, and quetzals.
