Spring break in Costa Rica! Live volcanoes, national parks, tropical weather, and beautiful people are the backdrop for social entrepreneurship in action. Working with the University for Peace, we will look at ENTREPRENEURS, documenting the MARKETS, FARMERS, AGRIBUSINESS, and their ECOSYSTEMS. Students will also have the opportunity to enjoy Rafting, visiting a Volcano, Coffee Plantations, NGO’s, a Chocolate Company, and a free day to enjoy the beautiful beaches of Puerto Viejo. Join us!
