Matea's Journey to Costa Rica

Current Location

Tortuguero National Park, 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!


Costa Rica has been amazing so far! This week, I met some new people and explored new parts of the country.


I will share a little bit about my experiences adjusting to life in Costa Rica. There are many things that take some getting used to, but I’m enjoying the challenge.

Field Notes

This week, we visited Tortuguero (Land of Turtles) on the Caribbean coast. Find out how the people here work to reduce waste and conserve the land!


For my Eco-tourism class, we took a short field trip to see Volcán Poás (Poás Volcano). This is an active volcano located in the central part of Costa Rica.
