Siobhan's Journey to Costa Rica

Current Location

San Juan de Peñas Blancas, 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!


Hola (Hello), my name is Siobhan! I'm so excited to take you on my journey in Costa Rica, but first, here's a little bit about me. I can't wait to learn more about you!

Field Notes

Costa Rica is home to lots of colorful and delicious fruits and veggies. We already learned about the cacao fruit, so let's learn about a few more of my favorites. 


Arenal Volcano is an active volcano about an hour's drive from my house. It's considered a young volcano, less than 7,500 years old, and last erupted in 2010. Are you ready to see it?
