Planning a student educational trip to Costa Rica? Our amazing country has so much to offer students,  with more than 5% of the world’s biodiversity, multiple climate zones, awe-inspiring natural beauty, and a fun, friendly local culture.

The Veragua Rainforest welcomes high school and university student groups traveling to Costa Rica throughout the year. We also receive educational groups from local schools and universities.

We offer an excellent educational opportunity for students and educators to engage in hands-on research of rainforest life working closely with our resident biologists. Our nature reserve features a research station, wildlife habitats, walking trails, a river and waterfall, a Sky Gondola, a canopy zip line tour, group accommodations, and a restaurant and souvenir shop.

Since 2012, our biologists have partnered with the University of Costa Rica to document climate change effects to help Costa Rica meet its commitments to the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, as well as the country’s goal to achieve carbon neutrality. We link our scientific investigations and climate change research with environmental educational programs that incorporate STEM educational elements of the natural sciences, technology, engineering and mathematics in a hands-on learning experiences.

Our adventure and nature park in Costa Rica’s Caribbean mountains is a hotspot of biodiversity in Latin America. More than 11 new animal species have been discovered, 44 bat species that represent a little less than the 50% of the bat species known for Costa Rica; nine of the ten tent-roosting bats known in Central America (Rodríguez-Herrera et al. 2007); and the first observations in the Central American lowlands for three bat species.  at the Veragua Rainforest,  and 15 endangered species have been recorded living in the area. More than 68 species of frogs and almost 23 percent of the known 379 species of butterflies in Costa Rica are found at Veragua.

International scientists regularly visit us to study the abundant populations of amphibians, reptiles, mammals, insects and birds.
