Hey there, it’s Gracie and Isabel, your future Trip Leaders for Costa Rica Active! We have just finished our first trip in California and made our way down to Costa Rica, where it is warm and lovely!
To introduce ourselves briefly, Gracie is joining BE for her second summer after leading trips in Iceland and Croatia last year. She currently lives in Leadville CO where she works as an EMT and ski patroller at Copper Mountain during the winter. A native Vermonter, she loves playing outside and is looking forward to our many beach days ahead, seeing the red woods for the first time, and cooking up some yummy camp meals this weeks
Isabel is excited to be leading trips this summer with BE! She’s currently based in California, where she has been leading outdoor education trips for schools across the state for the last two years. She’s very excited to share her knowledge and love of nature with the group! Growing up in Alaska gave her a love for exploring mountains and the coast, which Costa Rica has plenty of! She cannot wait to hang out in the sun with everyone soon.
We are stoked for you all to be joining us and all of our adventures ahead. We have a super exciting schedule full of surf lessons, ziplining, rafting, plenty of sightseeing, and so much more.
We will be waiting for you at arrivals at San Jose airport with snacks, and hugs, and will be wearing our purple Bold Earth t-shirts! When you arrive at the airport, you will follow the signs to customs, they will be written in English underneath the Spanish. Once you arrive, they will check your passport and ask you a few basic questions about your trip, make sure to know the date of your return flight (July 28th). After this station, you will go get your luggage. Once you have your luggage, follow more signs to customs where you will put your bag through a secondary security scan. Then we will be on the other side! If you are having issues, connect to the wifi to contact us. See the attached photos for some pictures of what this will look like! Safe travels to everyone, and please contact us if you have specific travel questions or updates.
Your Bold Earth summer of magic awaits!
