Siobhan's Journey to Costa Rica

Current Location

San Juan, Costa Rica

Hola, me llamo Shio! Hi, my name is Shio! I am currently a Community Economic Development Peace Corps Volunteer living in San Juan de Peñas Blancas, Costa Rica. Join me on this journey!



This week, I met up with the 24 other volunteers in my cohort for training in San Jose. Since we all live in different parts of the country, seeing my friends and sharing our experiences was fun!


Let's take some time to reflect on our time together and say goodbye for now!

Field Notes

Join me on a journey to a cloud forest, a special type of forest that only makes up 1% of all the forests on the planet! While there, we'll meet lots of plants and animals.


I live in San Juan de Peñas Blancas, a small town of about 500 people. In my town, we have schools, hotels and lots of small businesses. Let's take a photo tour and check out the map!
