COSTA RICA

JULY 6-10, 2020  (6D/5N)

$4,450 USD

Ideal for: Beginners- Advanced

The vibrant cultures of Costa Rica are set in a beautiful backdrop of land that’s slivered between the Caribbean and the Pacific. Offering a medley of landscapes and rich biodiversity, we’ve structured our trip to mirror this nation’s natural mosaic.


Our five-day adventure to Costa Rica will be deeply immersive and infused with flexibility. We like to think of the experience as a “choose your own adventure.” Are you a nature junkie? Adrenaline addict? Beach bum? Or, perhaps, more of a city slicker? Each shoot day can be worked to suit your individual interests.


Our small group size will allow you to work with others who have similar passions, and give you ample one-on-one learning from our workshop leaders who will be offering their unique expertise every step of the way!
