Matea's Journey to Costa Rica

Current Location

San Joaquín de Flores, Costa Rica

Hello, I'm Matea! I am in Costa Rica studying this county's history and culture. I am so excited to share my experiences with you!


We are transitioning into the dry season here which means there is a lot less rain than usual. This means that I can do a lot more outdoor activities without getting wet!


What do you think living in Costa Rica is like? I've learned that life here isn't as different from my life at home as I thought at first. 

Field Notes

One young student here was nice enough to let me interview her about her life in Costa Rica. Come read about our conversation! 


This zoo contains over 125 species of animals that cannot survive on their own in the wild. The habitats mimic their natural environments so well that I thought I was actually inside of a jungle!
