SAN JOSE & MANUEL ANTONIO
Costa Rica literally means ‘the rich coast,’ and it is indeed a tropical paradise. In Manuel Antonio, steamy rainforests lead to white sand beaches and cool blue waters. The pura vida (pure life) pace of life is always warm and relaxed. Meanwhile, in the Central Valley, the capital city of San Jose offers beautiful, sunny mornings and a cosmopolitan lifestyle in the commercial center of Central America.
Guatemala is known for its Mayan roots and colorful, vibrant culture, making it a great place for educational travel and study abroad. Timeless architecture, archaeological ruins, and volcanoes invite you to explore the historic city of Antigua. The ancient city of Tikal is to the north, Lake Atitlan and its small magical villages are to the west, and the Pacific coast beaches are just to the south.
Peru was the center of both the Inca civilization and the Spanish conquest, making it an eclectic mix of ancient and colonial history and languages. The full diversity of this amazing country is absolutely inspiring! Every traveler must visit the lost city of Machu Picchu, the Amazon Jungle, the snow-capped peaks of the Andes Mountains, undiscovered white sand beaches on the north Pacific coast, and the bustling capital city of Lima.
