Spend spring break 2017 in Costa Rica

Join us for this 3-credit hour course (BIO 2620) as we spend 10 days in exotic Costa Rica and Panama from March 15-25. 

Here's what you will experience on the trip:

  • Explore the flora and fauna of primary and secondary rainforests and snorkel over coral reefs teeming with life. 
  • Visit La Selva Biological Research Station, a tropical field laboratory operated by a consortium of universities from around the world.
  • Travel to the unique cloud forest of Monteverde.
  • Be serenaded to sleep by the sounds of tiny pink tink frogs only to be awakened the next morning by a chorus of howler monkeys outside your tent lodge!
  • Watch as chestnut-mandibled toucans, huge blue Morpho butterflies and red-lorred parrots fly through the understory.
  • Spend 2 days snorkeling in warm tropical Panamanian waters and see brightly-colored stoplight parrotfish, blue tangs, angelfish, fire coral, sea anemones, spotted eagle rays and various species of sponges. The biodiversity will astound you!
