Two Worlds United Programs in Costa Rica for High School students
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.
