|Upon arrival in San Jose, students will be met at the airport by the program’s counselors and transported to our nearby guesthouse. Here students will have the ability to relax before being taken to Turrialba by bus. There will be food & drink available along with access to restrooms & the internet.
If a student is unable to arrive by 3 pm Sunday, there is a Saturday pick up option available for an additional fee of $120. Students will be met upon arrival by a member of the ISLS staff. They will be transported to the Student Guesthouse where they will have dinner and stay for the night. The next morning they will have breakfast and relax while they wait for the other students to arrive.
We volunteer at a local orphanage three times each week. The other afternoon each week we volunteer at the government senior home. At the orphanage we will do a service project as well as play and interact with the children. At the senior home we read and play games. All of these activities are in Spanish.
All activities are scheduled for the dates and times listed, but are subject to change due to weather conditions or other circumstances beyond our control. In case of a tour or activity being changed, we will do our best to reschedule. If a tour/activity must be cancelled and cannot be made up, there is no refund.
