We are your Costa Rica Discovery trip leaders Cooper and Rachel. Cooper is studying at Colgate University and spent three summers as a student with Bold Earth years ago. Rachel hails from Ireland and has over a decade of experience guiding in the field in Asia and Europe.
We have just finished our first two-week trip here in beautiful Costa Rica, and we are still buzzing with excitement. The wonders of Costa Rica are bountiful: from the monkeys and toucans in the cloud forest to the sandy shores of Tamarindo. Even the drives between activities are stocked full of vistas and wildlife. ¡Pura Vida!
We are beyond thrilled to be running this trip again with our amazing local guide Javier, who has over 15 years of experience guiding Bold Earth trips. It is going to be an excellent couple of weeks filled with new challenges and laughter; parents, friends, and family please feel free to follow along with our adventures that will be uploaded here daily.
We cannot wait to get the group together tomorrow and cannot believe that airport day is finally upon us! San Jose airport is very small and easy to navigate. Please keep your eyes peeled for Bold Earth gear as we will be wearing our purple Bold Earth t-shirts as well as waving the Bold Earth flag.
