This Spring Break Journey is designed for Central Catholic High School! During this week students will adventure, serve and play in a beautiful region of Costa Rica. We will engage in a Service Mission trip filled with meaningful service projects with our established partners in communities of Guanacaste. This team will also enjoy time for adventures while seeing the sights in this wonderful country. All transportation and itinerary details are pre-arranged for the team. We arrange flights and in-country private buses, all meals, serve projects, team time, and fun adventures. This week will be filled with activities to engage in and also provide time on their own.
Our established community partners will assist us in designing just the right community based projects for the team once we know who is traveling this week!

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.
