Signature Service Adventure

The Journey

The Costa Rica Service Adventure is filled with fun, adventure, and meaningful service to the communities where we travel. Your time in Costa Rica is customized during this week. Do you enjoy helping others in a reforestation project, or perhaps teaching english in a partner school?  On our adventure days we will choose from a variety of fun local options from the hiking and bird watching, to whitewater rafting and zip-lining! There are so many exciting ways to engage in the culture of this beautiful Country.

 

On this week we will be exploring 3 areas. This trip is designed for the explorer, who wants to see as many sites as they can while in country!

 

We’ve been traveling and serving for 8 years in Costa Rica. The connections and partnership we have run as deep as the lake, and as long as the rivers!  Hacienda Rio Cote is a great environmental project that is inviting and meaningful from the start. We will provide a hand to the farm, and hike it’s beautiful trails. More details to come on this Summer 2018 Journey!

This Journey is perfect for all ages, all skills, all backgrounds, all belief systems. With a heart to serve, and enjoy a meaningful fun Journey, this will be an adventure of a life-time! We take care of all the details, logistics, and planning so that you, your friends and family can travel and serve while exploring the most beautiful country possible!

COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIPS

Hacienda Rio Cote

The Hacienda Rio Coté Project (HRC) was established in 2007 to restore and protect rainforest land adjacent to the Rio Coté National Protected Areas in Costa Rica.

HRC’s mission is to reforest and preserve land that is contiguous with existing protected areas of the Rio Coté National Forest and in effect increase the size of a pristine rainforest environment. HRC’s goal is to maintain and extend natural biodiversity, preserve watersheds, reduce erosion and river degradation, protect animal and insect habitats, and preserve the primordial beauty of the tropical rain forests for future generations.

Led2Serve is committed to the long term goals and partnership. We serve the farm through reforestation efforts, planting, tree preservation, and more. Typically we will serve on the farm for morning, hike the property, and enjoy a local meal with Duvelia, a nearby widow who makes an amazing meal for everyone and shares the story of her cheese farm!

We love taking teams to the lodge to see the beauty, birds and sights of Costa Rica.

We have 5 community partners in Costa Rica. On this Journey we will visit our friends and our partners in Nuevo Arenal and Santa Teresa Norte. Projects there will include a variety of options from sports, music, assisting to teach english lessons, helping paint a school, or plant a garden!
