ISLS Teen Spanish and Adventure Camps Playa Tamarindo Costa Rica

Zip Lining at Monkey Jungle Santa Rosa
Students will be transported by private van to a nearby nature preserve where they will be outfitted with repelling gear. They will then be given safety instructions from the tour guides before ascending into the forest canopy.  Once at the first platform, they will proceed to fly through the air suspend on metal cables attached to the trees. There are nine different cables and platforms of varying lengths. This is a very exciting and fun adventure, but also very safe. This is an age appropriate zip line for children.

Visit to Monkey Park
Students will be transported by private van to Monkey Park. This is a privately run wildlife sanctuary and rescue center. Here students will see monkeys of all types that are found in Costa Rica, along with a number of other species. Some of these animals come to the park because they are injured and need time to heal before returning to the wild while others were once pets and they are trying to re-introduce them back into the wild. This is a great educational experience and a lot of fun.

Surf Lessons
Students will meet their surf instructors at the school. They will be given surf boards to match their ability and size. They will then walk down to the beach. The instructors will give them information about safety and about the beach. After this they will break the students up into smaller groups and begin the lessons. The first part of the lessons will be on the beach followed by going out into the waves with the instructors. All instructors are certified lifeguards and have taken swift water rescue courses. There will also be a lifeguard on duty as well as all the counselors. Parents are welcome to come by and watch their children surf.

The banks are covered by a thick mangrove jungle.  Students will be transported to and from by private shuttle. Parents are welcome to join as well.
